Saskia Clark (born 23 August 1979 in Colchester, Essex) is a British sailor who competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics and who was selected, along with Hannah Mills, to sail in the 470 Women's class for Team GB in the 2012 Summer Olympics. They went on to win Silver at the games.

Saskia started sailing at Royal Harwich Yacht Club in an Optimist when she was 8 years old[1]

She came 6th in the 2008 Summer Olympics sailing in the 470 Class with Christina Bassadone.[2] She was set to sail with Sarah Ayton in the 2012 Summer Olympics, but Sarah retired to focus on her family life. Saskia was then paired with Hannah Mills.[3]

At the 2011 Skandia Sail For Gold Regatta and the 2011 Weymouth & Portland International Regatta, Saskia won a Silver medal in the 470 Women class.[4]

After they suffered a black flag in the very first race of the championships, Saskia and her helm Hannah claimed Gold at the 2012 470 World Championships in Barcelona.[5]
