Change of Plans:

Simpleweb‌ & WTHub hacknight on March 7th Simpleweb Challenge: Hack into Light! is currently postponed so we have something else to offer instead!

A screening of Maiden + Satellite Q&A with Tracy Edwards in celebration of International Women’s Day. It is being screened at the Little Theatre, Bath on Thursday 7 March at 18.00.

Synopsis:To celebrate International Women’s Day, join us for a Live Q&A with Tracy Edwards, the skipper of Maiden. The Q&A will be broadcast live across the UK and Ireland via satellite.

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

Tracy’s dream met opposition on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it; the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure; potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. With the support of her remarkable crew, she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.”
