Exhilarating, suspenseful, and emotionally charged, this documentary from director Alex Holmes chronicles 24-year-old Tracy Edwards's 1989-90 precedent-setting sea voyage around the world with an all-female crew. The award winning film, MAIDEN, is presented in Australia by Volvo and in cinemas for a limited time from 16 October 2019.

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 remortgaged her home and bought a secondhand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line.

Although blessed with tremendous self-belief Tracy was also beset by crippling doubts and was only able to make it through with the support of her remarkable crew. With their help she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.
