"Overpowered" is a movie that gets you to look into the life of the two German sailors Erik Heil and Thomas Plößels. They sail the probably most spectacular class in the Olympic program, the 49er skiff.

The unprecedented story documents the daily training routine on the sunny spanish island Majorca. There, they find the perfect training conditions and a good infrastructure - far away from the cold winter in Germany - to prepare for the ISAF Sailing World Cup.

"Overpowered" shows what makes high performance sailing.

Dealing with wind and waves, as well as the perfect coordination and communication between helm and crew. But also off the water, the sailors have to work hard for good endurance, that is required when sailing on a rocket like the 49er.

"Overpowered" gives an insight into the fascinating skiff sailing at Olympic level!
