Tracy Edwards MBE inspired a generation of women as the skipper of Maiden. She led the first all-female crew to compete in the notoriously difficult Whitbread Round the World Race in 1988/89.
Fast forward to 2014 when Tracy learned that Maiden had been abandoned and was rotting away in the Seychelles. She knew that she had to save this unique piece of maritime history and set about raising funds to buy her and bring her back to the UK. In April 2017 Maiden was shipped to Southampton and began an extensive restoration and refit and “The Maiden Factor” project was born.
