    • Synopsis
    • In 1968 nine men competed to be the first person to sail alone and non-stop around the world. As the single handers wrestled their boats through the mountainous seas of the Southern Ocean, Donald Crowhurst, an electronics engineer and week-end sailor became a unlikely hero when it appeared that his revolutionary boat was going to carry him home in record-breaking speed. Two weeks later his abandoned boat is found floating in the middle of the Atlantic.
