    In 1968 Donald Crowhurst was trying to market a nautical navigation device he had developed and saw the Sunday Times Golden Globe 'round the world sailing race as the perfect opportunity to showcase his product. Few people knew that he wasn't an experienced deep-water sailor. His progress was so slow that he decided to shortcut the journey, falsifying his location through radio messages from his supposed course. Everyone following the race thought that he was winning, and a hero's welcome awaited him at home in Britain.

    Herbst 1968, vor der Küste Südwestenglands: Donald Crowhurst sticht als einer von neun Teilnehmern des "Golden Globe Race" in See, um als Erster ohne Zwischenstopp die Welt zu umrunden. Trotz mangelnder Segelerfahrung scheint er am schnellsten voranzukommen, und die Öffentlichkeit feiert ihn bereits als Sieger. Doch acht Monate später wird sein verlassener Trimaran auf dem Atlantik entdeckt. Nur die Log- und Tagebücher befinden sich noch an Bord.
