The yacht Maiden will arrive at Mystic Shipyard for the Mudhead mid-season party! Maiden is the Farr-designed 58-footer which Tracy Edwards and her all-female crew sailed to 2nd overall in the 1989-90 Whitbread Round the World Race. Not only did they sail to second place, but more significantly, shattered the glass ceiling for women’s sailing at the Grand Prix/Professional level.
The yacht recently had a full restoration before setting off on a round the world trip to raise funds and awareness for girls’ education under the banner of The Maiden Factor.
Join the party after the Mudhead races and see the Maiden and meet her crew. (Event start time below is approximate, as the party immediately starts after the races.)
