Nominated for the 2020 BAFTA for Outstanding British Debut.
1989 and 24 year old Tracy Edwards is a cook on charter boats. No one expected her to lead the first all-female crew to take on the Whitbread Round the World Race.
Facing massive opposition – from male competitors who doubted women were up to the challenge, to incredulous sponsors – Tracy’s refusal to give up is inspirational, even as she is forced to mortgage her home to pursue her dream.
This triumphant documentary is a testament to women’s redoubtable spirit and an amazing portrait of sporting achievement.
