We are delighted to announce we have signed on as telecommunications partner for the Perth2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships.
As one of the biggest international events ever held in Perth, we were thrilled when the organisers approached us for support. As many will be familiar, iiNet has deep roots in Perth having begun as an operation in a suburban garage 18 years ago. We tend to consider it as our “stomping ground”. Now, having grown to Australia’s second largest DSL provider we’re happy to lend a hand to something that will attract such international attention to Perth and its tourism.
The Perth2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships will see the world’s best Olympic-class sailors competing from December 3rd-18th to qualify for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Ten racing fleets, 850 boats and 1400 athletes are a lot to keep up with and we understand now more than ever up-to-the-minute coverage of international events is crucial. So we’ll be providing the communication technology necessary for organisors, competitors and press to get audiences as close as possible to the action as it’s happening.
While the complexities and excitement involved with sailing will be out on the water, our customers and followers can still get close to the action no matter where they are with live streaming of the Perth2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships on the Freezone.
