August 12 
Celebrate the beginning of Chester Race Week with the incredible sailing documentary Maiden.

The story follows Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, as she leads the first all-female crew in the 1989 Whitbread Round the World Race, a grueling yachting competition that covers 33,000 miles and lasts nine months.

Maiden currently sits with a 98% Fresh rating on with critics saying:

What you especially appreciate about [Tracy] Edwards is her fierce love of boating and her steely resolve to succeed. You watch the riveting film and wonder how anyone could have doubted that she would, indeed, sail around the world.”- Niagara Gazette

Maiden works on all these levels: as a sports movie, as a telling look at gender assumptions and as the story of women who refused to take “no” for an answer.”- Denerstein Unleashed.

Join us for this fantastic story of perseverance and determination that is bound to leave you feeling inspired and ready to take on the world.
