Teignmouth Electron, as she was on July 10, 1969









Teignmouth Electron

 Donald Crowhurst
 


Donald Crowhurst was a sailor competing in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race of 1968-69. His boat, a trimaran named Teignmouth Electron, left England on October 31, 1968; it was found abandoned south of the Azores on July 10, 1969.



Most writers on the Triangle would stop there (only Winer elaborated on the facts), leaving out the evidence recovered from Crowhurst's logbooks which showed deception as to his position in the race and increasing irrationality.

His last entry was June 29; it was assumed he jumped over the side a short time later.









Summary



The Teignmouth Electron found abandoned in the Atlantic, July 10, 1969. (Sunday Times)

Fair use rationale is to illustrate the loss of Donald Crowhurst in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race of 1968-1969, and as such this photograph is considered to be of fair use for the article it is on.
