In 1968, nine men set out to conquer the seas by becoming the first people ever to circumnavigate the globe without stopping. This journey would span 30,000 miles over ten months and cost eight lives. For one man, the race was more than a fight against his competitors and the elements, it was a battle with himself - a battle that would end with his descent into madness.
- Donald Crowhurst
