Re: Go see Maiden - the documentary
We’ve seen it three times. Most recently was at a screening at a local theater for an audience of about 300. One of the crew - Dawn Riley - was on hand to talk and answer questions afterwards. Quite an event!
Maiden - the vessel - has been restored to racing trim and has been taking part in regattas in the Caribbean. https://www.themaidenfactor.org/worl...nerary/current
. As the weather warms up they will be heading up the US east coast through the spring, ending up in Newport RI before returning to England.
NPR has a great article with interviews that provide more details about the individual crew and backstory here: https://www.npr.org/2019/06/27/73652...d-into-history
