Plot – This movie tells the incredible true story of Donald Crowhurst, amateur merchant and sailor, who in 1968 decides to join the Golden Globe Race, a non-stop solo regatta around the world. He is allured by the cash prize offered to the winner by the magazine Sunday Times, money that would grant him some financial stability, and also by the idea of becoming the first person to circumnavigate the globe alone without breaks. Donald reluctantly decides to leave his family, his wife Clare and their children, risking his home and job, to embark a boat that is not fully ready to start his adventure aboard the trimaran Teignmouth Electron.

“- Mr. Best: How far are you going today?
- Donald Crowhurst: Oh, just staying locally. Practising for a longer haul, though.
- Mr. Best: Really? Any place in particular?
- Donald Crowhurst: Round the world.”
The only thing that I can imagine that would test a man more than sailing around the world in a boat alone, stopping only once, is not stopping at all. And "The Sunday Times" has asked me here today to announce just such a challenge. There will be a cashprize for the man who comes first, and a prize for the man who is fastest.
“Because to only do what has been done before is to live one's life in the shadow of other men.”
“A man alone on a boat is more alone than any man alive.”
“During his lifetime each man plays cosmic chess with the devil. It's difficult to know who's winning, because God plays with one set of rules, the devil plays with the other exactly opposite set of rules. But one thing is clear. The only real sin is the sin of concealment.”
“Donald Crowhurst wanted to be famous. Now, he's about to be.”
