Description


It is 1913, and the plutocrats of the New York Yacht Club have amassed more power and wealth than the US Treasury itself.

Davey and Jacob Haskell, brothers from a poor lobster fishing community in Maine, have a single shot at greatness when they try out for the sailing crew of a NYYC millionaire's luxury racing yacht.

Honor, betrayal, and the cruelty of an egomaniacal skipper put the brothers' family loyalties to the test as they set out to expose a dark secret covered up for years in the corridors of the New York Yacht Club.

"Dolby takes us behind the scenes as an intense competition evolves into a high stakes grudge match. The quest for victory is an emotional

roller coaster ride. Once you start reading you won't want to stop."

-Gary Jobson, America's Cup Hall of Fame Inductee

"A ripping yarn ... full of mysteries, passion, class struggle, and ruthless competitive spirit. Prevailing Wind is an absolute blast "

-J.J.Abrams, Filmmaker
