In 1989, the idea of a competitive all-female sailboat crew was inconceivable to the manly world of open-ocean yacht racing. Tracy Edwards proved them wrong. The 26-year-old skipper, 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. They shocked, inspired, and transfixed the sailing world and the British nation.
