Event Details

Maiden is the story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the prestigious Whitbread Round the World yacht race in 1989. Tracy’s inspirational dream was opposed on all sides: by her male competitors, the chauvinistic yachting press, and potential sponsors, who feared her crew would die at sea. But she refused to give up, remortgaging her home to buy a secondhand boat, putting everything on the line. She and her crew would go on to prove that women are very much the equal of men. 98% Critics Rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
