Saskia Tidey

Saskia Tidey is an Irish born sailor, who has represented both Ireland and Great Britain in international sailing regattas.[1] She represented Ireland at the 2016 Summer Olympics in the 49erFX class.[2][3]

In January 2017, Tidey confirmed that she hoped to represent Great Britain at the 2020 Summer Olympics due to the retirement of sailing partner Andrea Brewster and the unavailability of another suitable partner in Ireland for the 49er FX skiff event. On 1 October, the British Olympic Association confirmed that Tidey had been selected to represent Great Britain at the 2020 Summer Olympics in the 49er FX Schiff class alongside Charlotte Dobson.[4]
