Whitbread round the world skipper, Tracy Edwards

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:08 pm on 24 March 2021

No one was going to give Tracy Edwards the chance to crew aboard a boat in the epic Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race. The male dominated sport shut her out, so she opened her own syndicate, assembling all women crew and did it herself.

The documentary Maiden retraces their voyage. Jesse talks to Tracy Edwards about the New Zealand premiere on Rialto Channel, and how to stop being a bystander in your own life.
