The Mercy trailer – Donald Crowhurst biopic – Feb 9 2018 release

Some members may not be aware that a film has been made of Donald Crowhurst (played by Colin Firth) who was a Teignmouth resident and mysteriously vanished in his ill-fated attempt to compete in the 1969 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race.

Teignmouth residents will recognise some of the film locations which were shot around the town. Many locals were also used as ‘extras’ in the film, even one or two B.O.A.T. members!

Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz plays Crowhurst’s wife. The film is scheduled for release on February 9th, 2018.
