We are thrilled to announce that the incredible Liz Wardley is coming onboard Maiden as skipper, taking over the helm from Wendy Tuck when Maiden sets off on the next leg of the World Tour!
Commenting on her appointment as skipper Liz said “It is incredible to have the opportunity to sail on Maiden, the first boat to ever race around the world with an all-female crew. It is humbling to follow in Tracy Edwards’ footsteps and skipper her legendary yacht.
Although things have changed a bit over the last 30 years, there is still a lot of skepticism about women in sport and I am really excited to be working with the team to empower the next generation to achieve their goals. The crew, the milebuilders, the guests and hearing the stories from people around the world who are also inspired by the Maiden story, are living proof that through hard work, tenacity and belief, anything is possible.” She added.
