Thomas Simmons

Thomas was a young onlooker in Newport Harbor when his uncle, Mike Plant, appeared over the horizon and sailed to victory in a singlehanded sailboat race around the world. Thirty years later, he has fulfilled his dream of sharing Plant’s story on the screen. Thomas has navigated the course of his first feature film much like Plant campaigned his first circumnavigation – on the strength of zero experience, equipped with a core belief in the message it conveys to others: take a chance and face your dreams… life is a great adventure
