Maiden (12A)

Documentary about Tracey Edwards and the first all-female team to compete in the Round the World Race.
A moving portrait of resilience chronicling the unprecedented journey of 24-year-old Tracy Edwards and the first all-female sailing crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Race, a grueling yachting competition that covers 33,000 miles and lasts nine months.

The Whitbread Round the World Race (rechristened the Volvo Ocean Race in 2001) was considered an exclusively masculine endeavour when Edwards came along and, in the face of much sexist condescension, proved that skill, perseverance, and courage at sea know no gender.
