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. 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:
