Maiden – Whitbread Round The World Race 1989


Just saw Alex Holmes’ s documentary “Maiden” at the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s about Tracy Edwards all female crew that sailed around the world in the Whtibread 1989 race. It follows Tracy’s early life and the various steps leading up to the race. An incredible study of courage, persistence and bravery in the face of incredible opposition, problems and of course mother nature. Any one interested in sailing or adventure this is for you.  A testament to the optimism of youth.
