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, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. With the support of her remarkable crew she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.
“Tracing the journey of forward-thinking female sailor Tracy Edwards, “Maiden” unspools a heart-pounding race around the world, but the true challenges facing Edwards and her all-woman crew include institutionalized sexism, a media circus unable to look beyond a splashy story, and crushing self-doubt.”
