Annalise Murphy recorded two wins in Perth on day six at the ISAF World Sailing Championships.

In classic sea breeze conditions blowing 15-18 knots, Murphy sailed two faultless races to narrow the point’s gap going in to the medal race on Sunday and the final days racing where she is in contention for a bronze.

Also in Perth Ger Owens and Scott Flanigan in the 470 class did not achieve Olympic qualification in Perth and will have to travel to Barcelona for the 470 Worlds in May 2012 for qualification.

Peter O’Leary and David Burrows in the Star and Ryan Seaton and Matt McGovern in the 49er will begin racing on Sunday and Monday respectively.

Both teams have been preparing for the regatta out on the water over the past couple of weeks and have spent the past few days putting the final touches to their boats. Laser sailor, James Espey, will also begin his qualification process on Monday.
