Maiden

Maiden

Maiden is the inspirational true story of Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old charter boat cook who put together and skippered the first all-female crew to enter the prestigious Whitbread Round the World yacht race in 1989. Tracy’s dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it; the press took bets on her failure; and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing she and her crew would die at sea. But Tracy refused to give up and, with the support of her remarkable crew, went on to shock the sports world and prove that women are very much the equal of men.
