Synopsis:
"Maiden" Maiden is the inspirational story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, 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, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, 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.

Maiden Courage - Maiden review by Lucita

Spoiler Alert
11/11/2019

this is an excellent documentary. it is not sentimental and it just gets on with it. it makes us very aware of male chauvinism but that is not its main point. whether you are interested in sailing or not you will really engage with this film. it is about courage, endurance, and the Olympian spirit which states that the important thing is to have participated rather than to win.
