Deep Water

Deep Water is the stunning true story of the first solo, non-stop, round-the-world boat race, and the psychological toll it took on its competitors.

Sponsored by the Sunday Times of London, the much-ballyhooed event attracted a field of nine, including amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst, who set out to circumnavigate the globe in late 1968.

Battling treacherous seas and his own demons, Crowhurst almost immediately comes apart as he faces the isolation of nine months on the high seas. Part adventure yarn and part metaphysical mystery, Deep Water is an unforgettable journey into one mans heart of darkness.

    Wow! What a fascinating story. Certainly not the story I expected.

    Anyone who liked this documentary would do well to read Hall and Tomalin’s “The Strange Last Voyage Of Donald Crowhurst”, on which this is based.

    I loved it and so sad  

  • Creativesolutions123

    Its sad.But- at the end of day dieing, living your dream- is a hell of a nice way to go!

    I hope I get to go living my dream too!

    Its the same one to sail away with a lady who loves me-he should have had a lady who loved him,

    With him and it would have turned out much better.

      You’re being both overly romantic and very unfair to Claire Crowhurst. Sho believed in her husband, supported him in every possible way and loved him enough to let him go. Don Crowhurst’s dream turned into a nightmare because he was unable to face the truth he discovered about himself. He died a horrible, lonely death in the grip of madness, thousands of miles from help.

      -if he knew that 4 decades later-some illiterate(not least-semantic and spelling irregularities) ……with a nomenclature ‘creativesolutions123 -would be making such  a comment,-DC might never have sailed.

    that was so damn good, true failure is never trying at all, never taking that first step, he didnt fail, he did something great, he tried…

    Feel sorry for his family and his wife.  Seems they are still missing him.  A shame he was unable to look past the ‘ridicule’ as he thought out his options.  Nearly all celebrities rebound after a fall from grace – provided they have a sense of humility.  He should have thought a bit longer on his options.  Heartwarming tribute by his friend.

    One of the best documentaries I’ve seen.

    Not sure why he just didn’t head for land to Africa and disqualify himself from the race. Assuming he got away with the charade of travelling three quarters of the way around the world, he at least would have avoided paying back his sponsor and saved his house. Whether he could live the rest of his life with the guilt of a lie is another question. The moral of the story for me is truth is always the best option.
