Ski Racer in sailing race
This summer, Britain’s number one Ski Cross racer Emily Sarsfield is taking part in one of Britain’s most prestigious sailing races – around the Isle of Wight.
Emily is taking part in this year’s JP Morgan Asset Management Round The Island Race, on 1 June. She is sailing on a yacht sponsored by SkiWeekends.
“I’m really excited about taking part in the Round the Island Race this year. Although I have sailed before, I’m a virgin racer. I’m really looking forward to helping the SkiWeekends team get the best result possible and seeing their brand new spinnaker!” said Emily.
Eight times British champion in her sport, Emily is currently the only British female skier to meet the BOA selection criteria for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.
SkiWeekends.com is helping her to secure a place at the Games by supporting her for the 2013/14 ski season.
“SkiWeekends.com is delighted to have Emily as part of our Round the Island race crew.” said Dan Fox, Managing Director of SkiWeekends.com.
He added: “We feel privileged to be able to help one of our most successful winter sport athletes on the ‘piste’ to the Olympics…. We can’t wait to bring her competitive athleticism and spirit on board.”
