Sailing Season // Deep Water

Dirs: Louise Osmond, Jerry Rothwell | UK 2006 | 91 min | PG

Up next in our Sailing Season is a riveting documentary unearthing a forgotten and fascinating story from 1968. The Sunday Times’ inaugural Golden Globe Race is launched to inspire the first solo sailing circumnavigation of the globe, but when amateur sailor and marine electrician Donald Crowhurst enters the fray he soon finds himself out of his depth.

As disaster takes hold almost immediately, he faces both the intense fear of failure and the psychological strain of prolonged isolation, and a remarkable tale of eccentricity, courage, but also hubris and denial, emerges.

Deep Water was nominated for Best British Documentary at the BIFAs and won the Best Documentary award at the 2006 Rome International Film Festival.

Tickets: £7.75 adult / £6 concession (inc. Poly Fund)
