Speak to your local RYA high performance manager, they sould be able to help.   Best thing to do is to start off making a 'sailing C.V.' listing all of your experience and successes during your sailing carrer.  Put together a basic letter to companies which you can alter to make it specific to each one, companies always reply well to a well worded letter which does not look like the same thing has been sent to lots of different people. 

Remember national sponsorship (from the RYA) is usually reserved for youth squad memebrs so getting into that should be a priority. 

Also commertial sponsorship is not just there to help you, companies do it for the advertising, they will only associate themselves with events where people who will buy their products will attend, so think who will want to advertise at events you will be competing in. 

hope this helps, and good luck.

Every man and his dog is after sponsorship from
marine-related industry.
Depending on how much you need, think about
non-marine related companies - ideally local that
would enjoy some advertising coverage in local
press with great pictures. 'local girl done good' type
stuff. Local press lap this up.
Local press coverage i far easier to achieve than
National, and therefore easier to 'promise' to the
sponsor.
If they don't know about boats, 'photoshop' some
pictures of your boat with their logo on sail or hull if
you can. Helps to put it in their face a bit, so they
know what they are getting (particularly if they don't
know one end of a boat from another.

good luck
