Biography

Sarah Webb was part of the gold medal winning team, affectionately named ‘Three Blondes in a Boat’, which triumphed at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. With her crewmate from Athens Sarah Ayton and newly recruited Pippa Wilson won gold four years later at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Already a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), she was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2009 New Year Honours.

Webb began her sailing career aged seven in an Optimist dinghy, like many of her peers. It did not take long though for her natural talent to be recognised by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA). It was in the ranks of the RYA youth squad that Webb’s talents were nurtured, culminating in top ten finishes in the Laser Radial Class in both the 1995 and 1996 ISAF Youth World Championships. Following her excellent results in 1996, she was awarded the Yachting Journalists Association Young Yachtsman of the Year.
