Re: Sailing movies/ films
Watched this last night. What a sad tale. Not sure how accurate it was but interesting tale.
The book " http://www.amazon.ca/Voyage-Madmen-Peter-Nichols/dp/0060957034" goes into more detail about Crowhurst as well as the other competitors in the Golden Globe race.
I've heard they were making a movie about Crowhurst starring Colin Firth.
I think Eddie Marsan looks the spitting image of Donald Crowhurst:

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
