The story of Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, who became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989.

Tracy Edwards had her first Whitbread Round the World Race experience  as a cook on the boat Atlantic Privateer. She enjoyed the experience so much that she decided to take part as a skipper and three years later she bought the 58ft yacht Maiden. Edwards put together an all – and first – female crew and entered the race. The crew went on to win two of the Whitbread legs and came second in class overall.

Edwards went on to receive an MBE and became the first woman in its 34 year history to be awarded the Yachtsman of the Year Trophy. 

Director Alex Holmes comments: “Maiden is an inspirational story of guts and determination that deserves to be heard by the widest possible audience."

The continuing story of the Crawley family, wealthy owners of a large estate in the English countryside in the early 20th century.

The film begins in 1927 by following the journey of a letter from Buckingham Palace to Downton Abbey. The letter announces that King George V and Queen Mary are coming to Downton as part of a royal tour through the country.

Excitement is high at Downton Abbey when the Crawley family learns that King George V and Queen Mary are coming to visit. But trouble soon arises when Mrs. Patmore, Daisy and the rest of the servants learn that the king and queen travel with their own chefs and attendants -- setting the stage for an impromptu scheme and other shenanigans.
