In 1989 Tracy Edwards made history when she led the first all-female crew to compete in the Whitbread Round the World Race. Appalled by the male chauvinism that pervaded the world of sailing in the late 80s, the young Englishwoman decided to show the world that women were more than capable of challenging their male rivals. Featuring interviews with the central players and an array of fascinating archival footage, MAIDEN tells the inspiring story of a group of women who refused to let anyone tell them what to do.
