In 1968, the first non-stop, solo, round-the-world sailing race captivated the globe and had competitors vying for two prizes: first man home and fastest voyage.

Race progress took an unexpected twist when amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst found the challenge to be more than he was prepared for, and he determined his own fate when he made the final decision on how to proceed.

Follow the progress of the Golden Globe Race from March, 1968 to July, 1969, tracking Donald Crowhurst's journey and those of his competitors. See who finished, who won and who paid the ultimate price.

Positions on the map are estimated.
