"I encourage sailors who have an aim of securing one of the 380 places available at the London 2012 Olympic Games Sailing Regatta to complete the online entry for the Perth International Regatta soon," Mr Longley said.
"Athletes who compete in November this year will 'get a feel' for the weather conditions that are likely to ensue in December next year for the Sailing World Championships," he said.
He said the urgency was due to the fact that places were limited and on a 'first in, first served basis'. Further, he added that Perth 2011 had "already received interest from 14 countries wishing to enter teams" and that "about half the number of athletes and boats that would travel to Perth for the Sailing World Championships would be in Western Australia for this year's event".
