Australia's Ashley Stoddart sailed at the 2009 ISAF Youth Worlds in Buzios, Brazil finishing sixth in the Laser Radial Girls. Two years on and Stoddart is sailing at her second ISAF Youth Worlds in Zadar, Croatia.

The Australian, who is #39 in the world, has sailed at four ISAF Sailing World Cup Regattas this series and posted an impressive seventh place finish at the Delta Lloyd Regatta.

With her experience of the 2009 ISAF Youth Worlds and from sailing with the senior Laser Radial athletes she is hoping for a podium finished, "I definitely want a podium. Coming sixth last time definitely wasn't good enough but with it being my first time it was pretty good."

And having sailed at an ISAF Youth Worlds before the 18-year-old knows what to expect, "Buzios was really exciting, the regatta had a really good atmosphere and I guess it's very similar to the way the Olympics are run with the boats being supplied and with all the rules and guidelines."

View a full interview with the Australian as she talks about her time at the 2011 Kieler-Woche, the final ISAF Sailing World Cup Regatta, her expectations of the 2011 ISAF Youth Worlds and draws on her time at the 2009 ISAF Youth Worlds in Buzios, Brazil.

Sailing begins on Saturday 9 July with 12 races scheduled until Friday 15 July.
