“We anticipate some fantastic racing as teams compete for the last
three available places for the London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition. The
pressure will be on, but that’s what fighting for an Olympic spot is
all about.”

Skippers that meet the eligibility requirements and request an invitation
by January 6 2012 will be invited to compete however no Member National
