Description

An open captioned screening of Maiden will be presented Thursday, August 22 at 6pm.

"A rousing, real-life, feminist adventure tale." - Caryn James, Hollywood Reporter

"A rousingly riveting record of a remarkable accomplishment." - David Parkinson, Empire

"Timely and intensely relevant." - Kate Erbland, Indiewire

"Appropriate for ages 11+." - Common Sense Media 


In 1989, the very idea of a competitive all-female sailboat crew was nearly inconceivable to the manly world of open-ocean yacht racing. They'd never make it to the start of the Whitbread Round the World Race, much less survive to the finish. They'd never find funding. They didn't have the strength or skill. They'd die at sea. Did that man professional female sailors even exist?

Tracy Edwards proved them wrong. 26-year-old skipper Edwards, her second-hand racing yacht Maiden, and her seasoned crew not only became the first-ever all-women challenge to the Whitbread, they proved able competitors in the famously grueling race, besting male crews in their class. By the time they returned to their starting point at Southampton, England after 32,000 miles of global racing, they had shocked, inspired, and transfixed the sailing world and the British nation.

The story of Maiden's upstart, defiant 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 - grounded in a perceptive group portrait of a team of courageous young women led by the remarkable, complicated Tracy Edwards. They pioneered the sport of long-distance racing for the women who followed and inspired women in all fields to prove themselves the equals of men.
