Film with a pirate who drinks seawater and dies of dehydration

When I was young, in the 2000s, I used to watch a movie (in color) about a group of pirate/explorer living some adventures on the sea.

Unfortunately, I don’t remember much about it.

However I remember well a scene that made a big impact on me when I was young.

At one point in the film, the pirate ship sinks and the pirates are forced to take to the longboats. The pirates are stranded at sea for several days without drinking water. At one point, one of the pirates breaks down and (this is what marked me) starts drinking seawater, despite the warnings of his comrades. In my memory, the pirate was happy to have finally been able to drink water. Some time later, the pirate dies of dehydration.

I don’t remember if this movie is a specific pirate movie or just a movie taking place in this period of time.

I’m sorry if I can’t be more specific but these are the only memories of this movie that I have now. And the fact that I don’t remember it has haunted me for a while now.

What I can say is that this film isn’t “In the Heart of the Sea” with Chris Hemsworth which was released in 2015. Moreover the movie that I’m searching for isn’t particularly a kid movie.

Thank you in advance for your help.
