Ellie Aldridge

Birth place: Poole, Dorset
Home town: Weymouth, Dorset

From where Ellie Aldridge started to where she is now are worlds apart.

Recalling her first sailing experience Aldridge remembers being ‘dragged’ on to a boat at her local sailing club, Parkstone YC, with her mother at the age of seven. Fast forward a few years and now you can’t get the Dorset local off the water.

Whether it’s a skiff, dinghy, multihull or even a kiteboard, Aldridge will be found competing or just ripping around for fun.
