In 1968 The Sunday Times offered a prize of 5000 pounds to the person that could sail single handledly round the world quickest. Deep Impact tells the true story of Donald Crowhurts attempt to be that person.

Using extracts from the actual logs kept by Crowhurst during his journey as well as interviews from competitors, friends and family we are given a fascinating insight into his motivations for taking on such a dangerous endeavour and the effect that such isolation and pressure can have on a seemingly normal person.

Proof that real life can be just as interesting as any fictional story.

One of the best documentaries I've watched in so many years. The story was well told with a combination of the life lesson not only just a pure tragedy story. A must watch!
(Stunning, Compelling, Deep, Life Lesson)

One of the most incredible stories ever memorialized on film. I sat stunned when it was over. I've sailed small boats at the most elementary levels, but I can appreciate, in the most basic ways, the raw power of what these men faced.

Profoundly sorrowful, profoundly human, profoundly philosophical.
