Maiden (UK, documentary, 97 min., rated PG) Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook in charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World in 1989. Tracy's inspirational dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure. “A sleek, exhilarating documentary look back at their race into history… What these women did — and what this one race reveals about individual struggle and institutional power — is galvanizing, but of course the larger, difficult story isn’t over.”- New York Times
