About the DVD-V Edit
Narrated by Simon Le Bon and Skip Novak, this is the story of Drum. The DVD-V is a contemporary and dynamic presentation of extraordinary adventure with accompanying music featuring Le Bon and Bronski Beat. The film brings the pressure and excitement of sailing a Maxi yacht through the toughest seas in the world.
In 1985, Drum a 77 foot Maxi yacht was competing in the Fastnet race with crew members Simon Le Bon, plus Duran Duran's managers and Rum Runner nightclub owner Paul and Michael Berrow. During the race the yacht suddenly lost her keel in gale force winds and capsized trapping six crew members inside. Drum was later completely re-fitted in record time, making the start of the Whitbread Round the World Race with just 2 days to spare, against these incredible odds she went onto take 3rd place out of 15 entrants.
