Ellie Aldridge is one of the world’s leading female formula kite athletes.
A winner of four World Cup medals she most recently won silver at the 2021 World Championships. She is also the reigning British champion having retained her 2019 & 2020 titles.
Recalling her first sailing experience Ellie remembers being ‘dragged’ on to a boat at her local sailing club, Parkstone YC, with her mother at the age of seven. Fast forward to 2022 and now you can’t get the Dorset local off the water! Whether it’s a skiff, dinghy, multihull or even a kiteboard, Ellie will be found competing or just ripping around for fun.
Ellie is one of the British Sailing team aiming to qualify for & represent her country in this new Olympic sport at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
Off the water she is passionate about sustainability & protecting the oceans for the next generation.
