Emma Richards MBE is a British yachtswoman. In 2002–2003, she became the first British woman and youngest ever person to complete the Around Alone, a 29,000 mile, single-handed round the world yacht race with stops. She was also a crew member during the Volvo Ocean Race 2001.

Her talent comes from spending so much time sailing, from a young age. At 11 she competed in dinghy world championships. She took a degree in sports medicine at the University of Glasgow. She was awarded an MBE in the New Years Honours List 2004, in recognition of her remarkable achievements.
