Maiden is the story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook in charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World in 1989. Tracy’s inspirational dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she remortgaged her home and bought a secondhand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. Although blessed with tremendous self-belief Tracy was also beset by crippling doubts and was only able to make it through with the support of her remarkable crew. With their help she went on to shock the sport world and prove that women are very much the equal of men.

Presented in collaboration with the Woods Hole Yacht Club.

Erik has already overcome some stunning challenges for both sighted and blind people, including climbing Mount Everest. In his powerful desire to be free from a prison of darkness, he embarks, alone in his own boat, into the home of the most iconic whitewater in the world, the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. He soon discovers that all the preparation and practice are not going to be enough, and when disaster inevitably strikes, Erik is faced with a choice and rare chance to change the outcome. A choice that will define his journey.
