An in­spi­ra­tional evening with yachtswoman

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

BE in­spired by Round the World yachtswoman Tracy Ed­wards at a spe­cial evening hosted by Ro­tary in Amer­sham.

An evening with Ms Ed­wards, en­ti­tled Never Give Up, will be held at Dr Chal­loner’s High School for Girls on Satur­day March 11 at 7.30pm.

Tick­ets for the event are on sale now and should be pur­chased in ad­vance to guar­an­tee a seat.

In her time, Tracy Ed­wards has seen great suc­cess, and faced dis­as­ter. The theme of her talk ‘Never Give Up’ de­fines her ap­proach to life, and au­di­ences around the coun­try, rang­ing from ma­jor cor­po­ra­tions to schools, have been in­spired by her story, and the les- sons she has learned from it.

In 1985, Tracy be­came the first woman to race on a Maxi in the Whit­bread Round the World Yacht Race. In 1989-90 she skip­pered the first all-fe­male crew to the best per­for­mance in the race by a Bri­tish boat since 1977.

She was awarded an MBE and be­came the first woman to be voted ‘Yachts­man of the Year’ by the Yacht­ing Jour­nal­ists’ As­so­ci­a­tion.

Tracy is a highly sought af­ter and ac­claimed mo­ti­va­tional speaker and the evening with her is sure to be pop­u­lar.

For tick­ets – priced at £15per per­son – go to bil­ and ‘Search’ Tracy or buy them at Water­stone’s in Amer­sham.
