In 1989, the very idea of a competitive all-female sailboat crew was nearly inconceivable to the manly world of open ocean yacht racing. They’d never make it to the start of the Whitbread Round the World Race, much less survive to the finish. They’d never get the funding. They didn’t have the strength or skill. They’d die at sea. Did that many professional female sailors even exist?


This is the story of Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, who became the skipper of the first-ever all-female crew to enter the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Race.
