Saving the Maiden

This is a story about an extraordinary woman and her love for her boat. Their relationship started in 1989, when British sailor Tracy Edwards was making a bid to be the first skipper of an all-female crew to complete the punishing Whitbread Round the World Race - five and a half months at sea. And, as she told Jo Fidgen, she was looking for a yacht to make the journey in.
