AROUND THE HORN IN A SQUARE RIGGER was filmed by noted sailor, author and photographer Alan Villiers documenting the record-breaking 83-day voyage of the 1902 barque Parma from Australia to England in the 1933 Grain Race. Villiers writes, "We wanted to make a picture that would capture some of the stirring beauty of these ships... some glimmer of understanding of the attraction which they hold over those who sail in them."
