MAIDEN

Dir. Alex Holmes | Documentary | U.K. | 2018 | 1 hr. 37 min. | Rated PG

In the late 1980s, British sailor Tracy Edwards decided she’d had enough of often being dismissed and belittled as the only woman among male seafarers. Setting her sights on the Whitbread Round the World Race, she assembled the world’s first all-female, multinational sailing crew, oversaw their DIY refurbishment of a beat-up old vessel, and entered the competition. This is the thrilling tale of inspiring women relying on their own resilience—and each other—to prove the naysayers and skeptics wrong.
