The latest episode of The Game Changes podcast features British sailor Tracy Edwards MBE who made history when skippered the first all-female crew in the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race.
Speaking to host Sue Anstiss MBE, Tracy discusses the challenges and triumphs she’s experienced throughout her life and career in sport. From overcoming seasickness to work on a Mediterranean charter yacht and getting expelled from school, right through to learning to navigate, being introduced to racing and making history on Maiden – the first all female boat to take part in the Whitbread Round the World Yacht Race.
Throughout the episode Tracy talks about the push back she and her team-mates faced as women taking on the race, the encouragement she received from her mentors, her mum in particular. And the mental struggles she faced after the race.
