Australian helps expand Olympic participation

The Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships were held in Western Australia in December. This week five sailors who participated in the Championships' Emerging Nations Programme have qualified to compete at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The four countries of Colombia, Trinidad and Tobago, Chinese Taipei and Guatemala, all of whom did not compete in sailing at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, will now be represented in London alongside the world's best sailors at the very pinnacle of the sport.

This Emerging Nationals program, developed by Perth 2011 is going to become a permanent part of future World Sailing Championships.

America's Cup news - The 12-story tall wingsail and hull crossbeams for the first of Oracle Racing's first of two AC72 yachts aimed at the 2013 America's Cup in San Francisco were delivered to the team today.

'It's a major step in the course of our campaign to win the America's Cup again,' said Jimmy Spithill, the youngest skipper to have won the America's Cup.

Volvo Ocean Race- A hard night is in store for the six boat fleet on Leg 8 of the Volvo Ocean Race as they suffer light headwinds surrounding the Azores island of São Miguel, which they must round before pointing their bows towards France.

At 2200GMT a significant lead change took place as Puma moved from being in a group with Telefonica and Groupama to join what had been the trailing group of Camper, Abu Dhabi and Sanya.



During the Newport to Ensenada Race 2012 a tragic incident occurred, on 28th April, which resulted in the deaths of four Sailors.

A US Sailing Independent Review Panel has come to a conclusion regarding the cause of accident. Aegean, a 37-foot Hunter 376 sailboat, was destroyed during the race a few miles offshore near Mexico's Coronado Islands.

Following extensive research, the Panel is confident that a grounding on North Coronado Island is the cause of accident.
