Event description
Tracy Edwards will talk about becoming the first skipper of an all female crew to compete in the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race.

About this Event

We are thrilled to be having Tracy Edwards in to talk about not just her achievements, but what it took to get there.

When everyone around her said it was not possible, she defied everyone in skippering the first all-female crew in the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race in 1989. She became the first woman to receive the Yachtsman of the Year Trophy and was awarded an MBE honour.

She has also written two books about her experiences and the film 'Maiden' released in 2018 was based on Tracy's experiences.
