A documentary short film, Fresh to Frightening – The Sharon Green Story – has been selected as part of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on March 3-12, 2022.

The film tells the story of how a young woman from Canada – Sharon Green – inspired by her father’s yacht racing triumph, rises to the top through the 80s and ’90s of a male-dominated industry to become one of the leading competitive yacht racing photographers in the world and the founder of Ultimate Sailing.

Take a glimpse behind the scenes as Green preps for races, chases down the wind, and takes to the sky in a helicopter hoping to capture images of majestic racing yachts in “big seas & big winds”, conditions Green lives for and calls – Fresh to Frightening.

The 19-minute short film will have its world premiere on March 7th at 1:20 pm at the Fiesta 5 Theater in Santa Barbara, CA. For more information on the film, updates and contact info visit
