Annalise Murphy has secured sixth place overall at the ISA World Sailing Championships in Perth.

There were light difficult conditions for the Ladies Laser Radial medal race and Murphy's lead leg but was overtaken by Bouwmeester (NED) and sailed in to a wind hole before finishing eighth in the race to secure the sixth place.

After the race a disappointed Annalise stated: "I sailed very well at this event but I was very unlucky at the end however I have achieved my objectives which were to qualify Ireland for the Olympics and finish in the top 10."
