BAFTA NOMINEE 2020

It is 1989 and 24-year-old Tracy Edwards is a cook on charter boats. No-one expected her to lead the first all-female crew to take on the Whitbread Round the World Race.

Facing massive opposition – from male competitors who doubted women were up to the challenge, to incredulous sponsors – Tracy’s refusal to give up is inspirational, even as she is forced to mortgage her home to pursue her dream.

Nominated for the 2020 BAFTA for Outstanding British Debut this triumphant documentary is testament to a woman's redoubtable spirit and an amazing portrait of sporting achievement.

★★★★ Edward Porter, Sunday Times

★★★★ "A knuckle-whitening tale of courage and grit" - Phil de Semlyen, Time Out
