Today we’ll talk about the historic win by the crew of Maiden, the sailing yacht which won the Ocean Globe Race last month. They made history as the first all-female crew ever to win a round-the-world yacht race. They were the only all-female crew competing.

Maiden also competed with an all-female crew in the 1989-90 Whitbread Race, after which the Ocean Globe is modeled. This time, they won!
