Since AlaskaProf already mentioned my favorite (the instrumental from Master and Commander, which brings back some warm family memories from a Thanksgiving weekend on the water years ago), I'll offer my second favorite. David Gray, Sail Away with Me Honey... (This video is a little California cheesy, but it's far better than David Gray's own real video which is oddly dark and has nothing to do with sailing.)

That song brings back good memories too of a long, sunny charter weekend to Catalina we did with good friends some years ago, out past the Queen Mary on a boat called the Coconut Telegraph, learned how to moor with a fore-and-aft sand line off Decanso Beach, fun days on the island. That was a good weekend with my pretty blond sunburnt wife and our friends, sitting in the cockpit together at night with glasses of wine and the lights of the island twinkling...ahhhh.
