Season 9, Episode 26 Deep Water

First Aired: June 15, 2008

"Deep Water" recalls amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst's efforts to compete in a round-the-world boat race in 1968. Crowhurst, who was ill-prepared for the trip and couldn't back out for financial reasons, fell far behind his competitors, so he began sending fake radio reports about his progress. Crowhurst apparently committed suicide.
