Set against the backdrop of the turbulent 1960's, DEEP WATER is the stunning true journey of a free-thinking but desperate electronics inventor who enters the most daring nautical race, the first ever Sunday Times Golden Globe solo, non-stop, round-the-world boat race. Crowhurst - driven by a desire to prove to the world that with the help of his revolutionary invention, an on-board computer, one could sail the seas effortlessly - maniacally and haphazardly readies his trimaran to set sail by the late summer deadline. As the race progresses, Crowhurst's reports of his positions at sea put him as the clear leader, unbelievably far ahead of Knox Johnson, his main competition. Headline after headline is being printed - not just across Britain but also across the globe. Crowhurst is fast becoming the darling of the tabloids, being hailed as a nautical wonder. But, as the world waits on tenterhooks for this extraordinary man to cross the finish line and sail into port to a heroes-welcome, the jaw-dropping truth is revealed.
