Australians performed well at the 2011 World Laser Radial Senior Championship- La Rochelle, France 16th-23rd July.

Tristan Brown (Curtin University) finished fourth and narrowly missed out on making it to the podium. The two Australian sailors will be aiming to notch up similar performances in laser class at the 2011 World University Summer Games to be held in Shenzhen, China in August.
