MADNESS AT SEA: The Lost Captain | Last Moments

A fascinating tale of deception, guilt and madness at sea. Unusually, it was all captured in logbooks and tapes, but the man behind them all disappeared forever.
"Donald Charles Alfred Crowhurst (1932 – July 1969) was a British businessman and amateur sailor who died while competing in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, a single-handed, round-the-world yacht race. Soon after starting the race, his ship began taking on water and he wrote it would probably sink in heavy seas. He secretly abandoned the race while reporting false positions, in an attempt to appear to complete a circumnavigation without actually doing so. His ship's log books, found after his disappearance, suggest that the stress he was under and an associated psychological deterioration possibly led to his suicide.
Crowhurst's convoluted and ultimately tragic participation in the race has exerted a fascination over subsequent generations of commentators and artists. It has inspired a number of books, stage plays and films; among the latter a factual 2006 documentary Deep Water and the films Crowhurst (2017) and The Mercy (2017), in which his part is played by the actors Justin Salinger and Colin Firth, respectively. His innovative but ill-prepared boat, the Teignmouth Electron, ended its days as a dive boat in the Caribbean and its decaying remains can still be found in the dunes above a beach in the Cayman Islands."
