Sailing for Ireland in Rio but switching to Team GB for Tokyo, Dun Laoghaire sailor Saskia Tidey has notched up a string of top results in her firstseason with scottish helmswoman Charlotte Dobson. Last week the Royal Irish Yacht Club sailor finished second overall at the 49erfx European Championships in Kiel, Germany.

In June, Tidey took Gold at the same venue in Kiel Week, and a fortnight earlier was a Silver Medalist at the World Sailing Cup Fnals in Santander, Spain. In April, she won bronze at the Hyeres Sailing World Cup in France earning her an Afloat.ie Sailor of the Month award in to the bargain.
