For the sailing enthusiasts, The Sailing Channel has selected Allied Vaughn to distribute the BluRay and DVD release of “Red Dot on the Ocean”, the true story of Matt Rutherfords sailing adventure, solo, through the Northwest Passage. Amy Flannery’s film of Matt’s life arc from troubled past, labeled a suicidal youth at risk to at sea perils makes for an inspiring experience.

The SailingChannel.TV creates original sailing content with a focus on cruising, and distributes documentaries and how-to sail videos by other producers. Our target audience is the global sailing community. Our videos cover the gear, the people, the skills, and the places that interest sailors

818522014555  Red Dot on the Ocean DVD-5  Once labeled a “youth-at-risk,” Matt Rutherford risks it all in a death-defying attempt to be the first person to sail alone and nonstop around North and South America. Professional sailors called him crazy and declared the journey “a suicide mission.” Braving the icebergs of the Arctic and the stormy seas of Cape Horn is no easy feat for any sailor. After reading about Ernest Shackleton and Arctic explorers, Matt became obsessed with sailing alone through the Northwest Passage – the mostly ice-clogged route through the Arctic linking the Atlantic to the Pacific. That obsession became a 27,000 mile quest to be the first sailor to circumnavigate the Americas alone without stopping.
