Perth-Fremantle ISAF Sprint 2017
To celebrate the running of the 2011 ISAF World Championships in Perth, Australia, SOL organized an overnight offshore race and a Sprint: 65nm in a J-80 sportsboat along the Perth/Freemantle shoreline. 'As the crow flies', the Sprint, which we are re-enacting, crosses Rottnest Island - noteworthy indeed as the island has been identified by BirdLife International as an 'Important Bird Area' and is home to breeding pairs of a number of endangered species.
