Sail-World.com - 2014 European Champ - Australian Sailing's Laser Team ready for event. Australian Sailing Team’s Tom Burton is amongst the favourites for Split after winning the last two ISAF Sailing World Cups in Hyères, France and Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
Australia won three Gold medals and a Silver at London 2012, making it the most successful sailing nation at that Olympics. There are some good signs as the clock ticks down to 2016, not the least was Tom Burtons win in the Laser Class in Palma with a 1,2,3 Laser medal race win by Australia.
The ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 9 December 2013 have been released. Disappointment at the Laser World Championship turned into joy at ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne for world number one Tom Burton (AUS) who won the second of five regattas of the 2013-14 series.
