A CAPTIVATING DOCUMENTARY TELLS THE STORY OF THE FIRST ENTIRELY FEMALE CREW TO COMPETE IN A GRUELING AROUND-THE-WORLD YACHT RACE

SEE

MAIDEN

In theaters June 28

Thirty years ago the first all-female crew set sail in the Whitbread Round the World Race, a grueling nine-month-long, 32,000-nautical-mile journey. Aboard a 58-foot yacht that the crew members refurbished themselves—and then aptly named Maiden—the 12 women took on plenty of skeptics, including countless men in the sailing press and on other boats who openly wondered if the women would even finish a single leg. (Spoiler alert: They did.)

The documentary traces the story of skipper Tracy Edwards, as she goes from teenage rebel to the single-mindedly determined engineer of Maiden's success. Using footage captured by crew members during the race, the film conveys both the harrowing power of the open ocean and the quiet camaraderie the women developed. Maiden will leave audiences inspired by the strength of nature and of those 12 women.
