The descent of a man into an ocean of despair....

This video is closed captioned for the hearing impaired.

This man's story is the basis for the movie *"The Mercy"*
starring Colin Firth as Donald Crowhurst
and Rachel Weisz as Clare Crowhurst
with David Thewlis as Rodney Hallworth
and Ken Stott as Stanley Best
In 1968, Donald Crowhurst, an inexperienced British sailor, puts up his home as collateral, gains financial backing and enters the Golden Globe, the first nonstop boat race around the world. Under dire financial pressure, Crowhurst decides to set sail before his boat is fully built, leaving it unprepared for the stresses of the open ocean. Crowhurst is under-prepared himself, and his decision to embark before he and his vessel are ready sets a deadly chain of events into motion.
