Allison prepares for ISAF WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS in PerthThursday, 1 Dec, 2011
1700 Athletes and over 80 nations will be competing in the ISAF World Championships in Perth this month in all Olympic sailing classes. Allison has been training at the windy Fremantle venue for a few weeks preparing for what will be the highlight of the season and the last chance to qualify for the London 2012 Olympics.
"Preparations are going well with fitness and equipment testing, with everything coming together in time for the first race on Monday the 5th December". The ISAF World Titles will consist of 10 races over a week and the medal race (Top 10 only) held on Sunday 11th December.
The opening ceremony will take place in the city of Perth at 12:00 this Friday with a parade of nations and local entertainment. Event organisers have booked out ferries, busses and even a train to transport all the athletes from Fremantle to town and back for the Opening Ceremony.
"I'm really excited about this World's, not only because its in my home country but it should be a lot of fun racing in the testing wind and wave conditions just off Fremantle". Said Allison.
Allison will need top 6 next week to make an Olympic qualifying result... good luck Allison!
