Featuring a post-film Q&A with Maiden Captain Tracy Edwards and sailor Dawn Riley, Director of Oakcliff Sailing School

In 1989, long dismissed and belittled as the only woman crewmember on the ships where she worked, British sailor Tracy Edwards set out to prove herself in the biggest way possible. She assembled the world's first all-female international crew and entered the Whitbread Round the World Race, a 32,000 mile global circumnavigation competition that, until then, had been the exclusive domain of male seafarers. (UK, 2019, 97 Mins., PG, English | Dir. Alex Holmes)

Cinema Arts Centre is pleased to partner with Long Island Traditions and the Plaza Cinema and Media Arts Center in Patchogue on a two-month-long film festival that celebrates Long Island’s rich coastal culture through the power of cinema.
