Shirley Robertson: Not afraid to get dirty

Published on August 13th, 2014

Double gold medalist and mother of twins, Shirley Robertson isn’t afraid to get dirty either. While on assignment for CNN International, Shirley got a taste of the action at the 2014 Landsailing World Championship on Smith Creek Playa in Nevada, USA.

“Felt like the speed was never ending,” shared Shirley. “Hitting 65mph in this photo. Every water sailor should have a go at it.”

The event will be the focus when CNN International airs the August edition of its highly-acclaimed global sailing TV show Mainsail on August 14 at 0930 and 1630; August at 16 0730 and 2100; and August 17 at 1630, all local times. Mainsail is not aired on U.S. television. American audiences should, however, be able to enjoy the show on the Mainsail website on or before August 17.
