Sailability Australia: Access Class 2012 Combined World and International Championships

Announcement from Yachte:

The Access Class 2012 Combined World and International Championships will be hosted by Australia's Middle Harbour Yacht Club from April 7-13 next year and the event is expected to attract over 120 disabled sailors from 12 countries.

Over the past 15 years, the Class has gained a strong following in Australia with very active support being provided by the Sailability organisation working in close alliance with established sailing clubs. 

International Access Class Association President, Terry Peek said, "The IACA is delighted that Middle Harbour Yacht Club will be hosting the 2012 Worlds. The venue is outstanding and overseas visitors will really enjoy the club facilities, the beautiful Middle Harbour waterway, the local area and all that Sydney has to offer.

The open class is open to competitors of all levels of ability, providing one of the few sporting arenas where disabled athletes compete "ON EQUAL TERMS" with able bodied athletes.
