Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships
The Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships will take place in Fremantle, Western Australia for the ten events of the Olympic Sailing Competition.
Racing is scheduled to take place from 3 to 18 December. As well as hosting the battle for World Championship glory, Perth 2011 is the principal qualification regatta for the sailing events at the London 2012 Olympic Games where 75% of the national places will be decided.
The nine fleet racing events will all sail an opening series before the top ten in each event contest a double-points Medal Race to decide the final positions. The Medal Races have a target time of approximately 30 minutes and will take place close to the shore to allow spectators ashore to get close up to the action.
The women's match racing format will be an opening series followed by a knockout series. Full details of the match racing competition format will be published by 31 August once the number of entries is finalised.
