Default Rare DVD of offshore racing from the 60's e-bay

The famous Run Sunward is on e-bay.

This is the professionally made film about Don Aronow and the offshore racers. The film crew followed them all over the world and captured some great footage in color.

Search line at e-bay is .....Don Aronow rare 1960's DVD offshore racing.

No, there is more than one available. HORBA had a boxes of stuff donated by John Crouse and there was an envelope with some of these in there.

They were the original PR photos that John sent out with the stories on Don, when he was starting his new company....what was it called again?....Oh yeah, Cigarette.

Nice piece of history for Cig guys (and gals, sorry)
