Donald Crowhurst is one of the most disturbing stories that has come out of long distance racing. The book about him, "The Amazing Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst" was absolutely riveting and depressing at the same time. His true story was far stranger than "Outerbridge Reach" the book that was loosely based on Crowhurst. I did not realize that NPR did a story on him as well.
