30 years ago, an all-female crew undertook an incredible around-the-world voyage that challenged every prejudice of the sailing establishment. Alex Holmes’ thrilling documentary Maiden pitches you right into the heart of the swelling waves and gruelling conditions of the Whitbread Round The World Race, under the captaincy of the then 24-year-old Tracy Edwards. Gripping archive footage and fresh interviews allow Edwards and her crew to recall every thrilling moment of their nine-month battle against the elements and the hazards of sexist condescension.
