“Tracy Edwards’ plan to enter the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Race with an all-female team was something completely unheard of. No one believed they would even make it to the start line, let alone to the finish. They would never find a sponsor. They would be too weak and lack knowledge. They would not even be able to finish the first stage. But with the sailboat called Maiden, a “tin can full of tarts”, as a journalist put it, the twenty-six-year-old Tracy, a former ship cook, proved them wrong.” – Layer House
