Coyote: The Mike Plant Story



Coyote: The Mike Plant Story


Thursday 11 July 8.30pm Channel 039

Spanning the decade from Mike Plant's arrival in professional offshore sailing in the mid 1980's, Coyote: The Mike Plant Story follows Plant's daring spirit as he challenges both Mother Nature - around the world alone on a sailboat - and French dominance in the sport. Chronically underfunded and undermanned, Plant's thirst for adventure and fearless belief in his dreams drive him to become an American hero of the sea and conquer the world's oceans alone. Despite all that he accomplishes in sailing, Plant's heart is never satisfied. His final creation, Coyote, a radically designed vessel built on the edge of speed and safety, symbolises Plant's course in life: running before the wind, always with an eye to the sea. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at Twin Critics Film Festival, U.S. 2017.
