Event Notes

× Celebrate the beginning of Chester Race Week with the incredible sailing documentary Maiden .

The story follows Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, as she leads the first all-female crew in the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Race, a grueling yachting competition that covers 33,000 miles and lasts nine months.

Maiden currently sits with a 98% Fresh rating on with critics saying:

Maiden works on all these levels: as a sports movie, as a telling look at gender assumptions and as the story of women who refused to take "no" for an answer.” . - Denerstein Unleashed
