FREO ISAF 2011 SWEET SATURDAY SAILING

Posted in fremantle by freoview on December 17, 2011

A good Fremantle ISAF 2011 race this afternoon but the breeze still not strong enough, so lots of pumping going on. The grandstand was full and about sixty people watched from Bathers Beach, but the promised figures of visitors definitely have not eventuated.

A man from the Dutch sailing team told me yesterday the last European events in Spain and Portugal only had such high ISAF numbers because tens of thousands of people were already in those countries for their annual summer holidays anyway.

But 80 countries got live TV telecast from Fremantle today and supposedly billions of people all over the world were glued to their television screens, according to the official radio station broadcast.
