In 1989, the idea of a competitive all-female sailboat crew was inconceivable to the chauvinistic world of open-ocean yacht racing. The story of Maiden’s upstart run at the Whitbread Round the World Race has all the elements of an epic adventure tale—50-foot waves, life and death drama, near-mutiny, thrilling victory—starring a team of defiant young women led by the remarkable, complicated Tracy Edwards. Lacking experience and funds, Tracy possessed an unyielding determination, recruiting skilled sailors that excelled under her spirited leadership. Putting everything on the line, the Maiden team bested male crews in their class while transfixing the sailing world. Tracy Edwards was awarded the 1990 Yachtsman of the Year Award, the first woman ever to receive the accolade, and was named a Member of the Order of the British Empire.
