British yachtsman Donald Crowhurst was an amateur sailor who entered the 1968 World Yacht Race in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe. While coping with the solitude of the 9-month voyage, Crowhurst (Firth) began reporting false positions in an attempt to cheat the public, but ultimately went mad and killed himself.
