Join us for our next Members' Book Club, taking place in person at the National Maritime Museum.

We'll be reading Jonathan Coe's The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim, which examines identity and isolation via the story of British yachtman Donald Crowhurst. Crowhurst was an amateur sailor who disappeared while competing in the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, a single-handed, round-the-world yacht race. His trimaran was not suitable for the journey and he abandoned the race within weeks, but reported false positions in an attempt to appear to complete circumnavigation without actually doing so. His boat was found empty in July 1969.
