Description

In 1989, the first ever all-female crew entered the Whitbread Round the World Race (now ‘The Ocean Race’), a six-leg sailing marathon covering about 60,000km. Enduring widespread sexism from sponsors, media, and the yachting community, the 24 year old skipper Tracy Edwards and her “all-girl” crew defied all expectations. (TIFF, IDFA, Sundance, SXSW selected; BAFTA nominee; Oscar shortlist)

“One of the year’s best docs” – Peter Howell, Toronto Star
