Biography

www.nickdempsey.com

Nick Dempsey became Great Britain’s first-ever Olympic windsurfing medallist with bronze at Athens 2004 in the Mistral class, the last time that event featured at the Games.

At Beijing 2008 however he just missed out on the podium, finishing fourth in the RS:X sailboard class in Qingdao. As a result, Dempsey opted to pursue a third Olympic appearance at London 2012 and in 2009 he won world gold in Weymouth, where he took silver in last year’s test event.

In October 2008, soon after the Beijing Olympics, Dempsey married double Olympic Yngling gold medallist Sarah Ayton and they have two children together, Thomas and Oscar.
