Featuring a post-film Q&A with Maiden sailor Dawn Riley, Director of Oakcliff Sailing School and offshore sailor Liz Wardley

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)

Liz Wardley is an offshore sailor and three times Volvo Ocean Race competitor, as Boat Captain on the mixed team of Turn the Tide on Plastic and as Watch Captain for the all-female crew of Team SCA in the 2014–15 Volvo Ocean Race. She is also a personal trainer, boat re-fitter and an ocean ambassador who SUPs, surfs and kiteboards in her spare time.


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.
