#ThursdayThoughts from Ken R. "Will men get an opportunity to sail on #Maiden?" We asked Tracy Edwards MBE to get him an answer...
Thankyou @toomanyhobbysgirl for such a great question! We asked Tracy and this was her response 👱‍♀️Plus- what fantastic #wednesdaywisdom
Tomorrow, we'll be filming a Q&A with Tracy, and it's your turn to ask the questions.  Comment below with your questions to get them answered on film by Tracy!
#ThrowbackThursday! ⛵️ A #Repost from  @sophieharris95 who came to see Maiden a few months ago, with her Mother, Nancy, who was part of the #Maiden crew! ⛵️ "Today we got to meet Maiden, this is the boat my Mum was part of the first all women crew to sail around the world as part of the 1989-1990 Whitbread Round the World Race. It was awesome to be able to see her during her re-fit and for Mum to see her after all the years! Looking forward to seeing her all spruced up when she is finished in June next year! #refit #hambleyachtservices #themaidenfactor #girlpower #maiden"

International is proud to be supporting the restoration of Maiden (@maidenfactor) - the 58ft yacht skippered by Tracy Edwards MBE and her all-female crew in the Whitbread Round the World race in 1989. Maiden is now being restored to her former magnificence using International yacht paint products and expert guidance from the International team. Maiden will be re-launched in June 2018 and will be used to promote, lobby and fundraise for better access to education for girls. Watch this space for more updates on the restoration project over the coming months!
Last week we looked down from the deck, all the way to the ground... now let's look up to the ceiling! 🕳🔭
Happy International Day of Peace, from all at The Maiden Factor 🌺
