Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships are being held in December 2011. Win your way to the championships by sailing from Weymouth to Perth in a LiveSkipper Virtual Yacht Race.

Using real-time weather conditions from around the world, the LiveSkipper Perth 2011 Virtual Yacht race, by BeTomorrow, allows skippers world-wide to control a virtual maxi-trimaran, navigating their way from the home of the 2012 Olympic Games sailing competition, to the home of the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships.

Players will voyage from England to Australia, following a 21,000 kilometre course which will lead them via the Cape of Good Hope on a foiler capable of making more than 40 knots of boat speed. Select your boat, trim her sails and set your course for Perth 2011!

The Perth 2011 LiveSkipper race is free to take part in and commences at 14:00 GMT on Thursday 10 November 2011. Prove to your friends that you are the best skipper of all by being the first to Perth.

There are some great prizes on offer including a return flight from anywhere in the world to Perth, Western Australia to enjoy the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships. Conditions apply.
