Revisit: Tracy Edwards, Competitive Yachtswoman, Author, and Philanthropist

How to describe Tracy Edwards? Let’s start with determined, accomplished, ballsy, adventurous, passionate. In 1989, when she was in her mid-20’s, Tracy and her crew of 11 females became the first-ever all-women’s team to compete in the grueling, prestigious, 32,000 mile Whitbread Round the World sailing race that begins and ends in Southampton, England. How she managed to pull this off (besting male crews in their class, by the way) is the focus of the inspiring, empowering documentary, “Maiden.” We are thrilled to share Tracy’s story in this not-to-be-missed conversation.
