One of the most famous racing schooners of all times was the WESTWARD. Designed by Herreshoff in the US 1910, she gave the German Emperor´s METEOR a very unhappy time during her first magic racing series of that year. This part I of a schooner-triology also sets some light on three outstanding characters: WESTWARD´s owner Mr. Cochran and her famous captain Charly Barr. The third is Ed Kastelein. Supported by a highly motivated small team he is building a replica of WEST-
WARD in our days . Named ELEONORA, the film follows her return from the building sheds to her first races in the Mediterranean.
The film was honored with the WORLDFEST HOUSTON SPECIAL JURY REMI AWARD in 2011
