Biographies

Tessa Parkinson began sailing at the age of eight with her younger brother in mirror dinghies at the Fremantle Sailing Club in Western Australia. Her love of the sport eventually saw her gain entry to the Australian Institute of Sport(AIS) in 2005. In 2004 she began what would become a successful partnership and started racing with fellow AIS athlete Elise Rechichi. Their first big victory was in the 420 event at the 2004 Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship. Shortly afterwards they switched to the 470 class — a move which eventually led to their splendid gold medal win at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
