Come and meet the all female crew and tour the iconic yacht Maiden

Skipper Tracy Edwards’ achievement with Maiden in 1990 inspired a generation of women. She defied critics who believed it wasn’t possible for an all-female crew to take part in the Whitbread Round-the-World Race – one of the most gruelling tests of human endurance. Maiden won two legs of the race and came second overall – the best result for a British boat since 1977 and a record that has never been beaten.

Sadly after the race Maiden had to be sold and Tracy went on to achieve many accolades and successful sailing projects. But in 2014 Maiden was found abandoned in the Seychelles. Tracy immediately set about raising funds to save the boat she loved and in 2017 Maiden returned to England.

In 2018, after a year long refit, Maiden, restored to her former glory, set off on her new mission, a high profile world tour, sponsored by DP World, as part of the Maiden Factor campaign to educate, inspire and empower girls around the world.
