The Whitbread Round the World Race 1989-90 Official Film

The 1989-90 Whitbread Round the World Race was a true classic, ending in a clean sweep of all six legs by Peter Blake and the crew of Steinlager 2.

Behind Blake, Grant Dalton’s Fisher & Paykel NZ and Pierre Fehlmann’s Merit completed the top three, while Tracy Edwards and all-female boat Maiden created one of the race’s most enduring stories.

Maiden won two of six legs in her class, leading to Edwards becoming the first woman to be named Yachtsman of the Year.
