The Two Voyages of Donald Crowhurst

Horse Latitudes

Horse Latitudes is based on the true story of Donald Crowhurst (Gordon Pinsent), an entrant in the 1969 round of the world single-handed yacht race, who pretended he was leading the race when he was actually sailing in circles in the South Atlantic Ocean. He kept sending back radio reports that led the organizers to believe that he was sailing around the world... until the lies drove him mad.
