Description: Set against the backdrop of the turbulent sixties, "Deep Water" is the stunning true story of Donald Crowhurst, a free-thinking electronics inventor who entered the most daring nautical race ever, the very first 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 out 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, 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 hero's welcome, the jaw-dropping truth is revealed.
