‘Maiden’ screening this week – discount tickets for members

Maiden – first ever all-female Whitbread Round the World crew

Enjoy a night out at the cinema in Derby this week. The Quad in Derby – DE13 3AS is screening Maiden from Tuesday and offering discounted tickets for members!

Maiden is the inspirational story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989. Tracy’s 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, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. With the support of her remarkable crew she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.
