The adventure of the first female crew that completed the round the world revives 30 years later in the form of a documentary, premiered at the SAIL IN Festival in Bilbao. Without pretending it, Viper Club Tracy Edwards and her colleagues wrote one of the most fascinating episodes of sport for equality.

A journalist snapped: “Are you a feminist?” “Not at all I hate that word, I would like them to let me do what I want and I do not see why they do not have to let me navigate the fact of being a girl.” The time has come for women to enjoy sailing ” Tracy Edwards (Pangbourne, United Kingdom, September 5, 1962) has acknowledged that she regretted that response she gave in the English port of Southampton in 1989. Precisely she and 11 other women were about to tear down a wall aboard the Maiden . Until then, competing in a round the world sailing was a challenge reserved to the testosterone of burly men and intrepid adventurers. This twentyish girl had already participated in the Whitbread Round the World Race 1985-86, but she did it as a cook, the only role a woman could have on board. She wanted to sail, so she had decided to arm and lead the first female crew that was going to surround the planet, even though her idea unleashed doubts and ridicule in equal parts.

Three decades later, in times of #MeToo or 8M, that feat revives in Maiden, a documentary directed by Alex Holmes and distributed by Dogwoof. Big Legend It was presented during the last edition of the Toronto International Film Festival, and its premiere in Spain took place in Bilbao last Friday, International Women’s Day, as one of the highlights of the SAIL In Festival, a unique contest on culture of the navegation. The film mixes archive material with new interviews and eighties music.

Edwards had a complicated adolescence. When she was 15 years old, she was expelled from school and she fought with the new partner of her mother, who had been widowed when Tracy was 9. She left home and found work as a cook on pleasure boats. That nomadic life seduced him, but even more so did the sea, he learned to navigate and found true freedom. One day, leafing through books on a friends’ boat, he discovered the photographs and stories of the Whitbread Round the World Race It’s Only the End of the World (the race that later became the Volvo Ocean Race and has recently been renamed the Ocean Race). She was captivated by that adventure. The next day he started looking for a team willing to hire her.
