MAIDEN - The Movie is Coming!

Pair of Tickets won by Kim Taylor

Maroochy Sailing Club has received the following offer from ADVENTURE ENTERTAINMENT, distributor of world-class adventure films.

We wanted to let you know that our latest adventure film, MAIDEN, is touring in October and has multiple screenings in Sunshine Coast. Please see details below.

MAIDEN is 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 was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. 

But Tracy refused to give up: she remortgaged her home and bought a secondhand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. Although blessed with tremendous self-belief Tracy was also beset by crippling doubts and was only able to make it through with the support of her remarkable crew. With their help she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.

We have been offered a couple of free tickets for the Maroochy Sailing Club.

Just found out we had to specify the day/session.

Tickets will be for the Wednesday 16 October 6.30pm session.

Our plan is to hold a lucky draw of the pair of tickets at lunch-time on Sunday 13 October. One interested Maroochy member (young or old) will win both tickets.

If you are interested, you can enter on the Sunday morning, or alternatively you can email Peter expressing your interest and ask to be included in the draw. Remember - you must be a member to be in the draw!
