Maiden is the inspirational story of how Tracy Edwards became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989.
Tracy’s dream was opposed on all sides. Her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it. The chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her. But Tracy refused to give up. She re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to enter the race.
With the support of her remarkable crew she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.
