Perth, Australia

The Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships take place in Perth, Western Australia from 3-18 December 2011. Competition will take place in the 10 sailing events selected for the 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition.

These twin attractions are expected to bring approximately 1,300 sailors representing 70+ nations to Fremantle Harbour in December 2011, making the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships the largest single-event ever held for the Olympic sailing events.
