Under the Hull: an 11th Hour Racing Team documentary
Under the Hull follows the offshore sailing team as they take on the infamous French race, the Transat Jacques Vabre, lining up against the masters of the sport of offshore sailing - the French - in the build-up to the double-handed race across the Atlantic.
From the building of a brand new, state-of-the-art 60-foot foiling race boat, to the physical, mental and onboard training, the film gives unrivaled insights into the highs and lows as the four sailors, supported by an international shore team, prepared their two entries - Mālama and Alaka’i - for the race of the year.
Under the Hull is presented by 11th Hour Racing, directed and shot by Ben Bireau, with Executive Producer Kristi Wilson, and onboard footage led by Amory Ross.
