November 15 - The Sports Events team at Schenker Australia is moving approximately 350 boats and sailing equipment to Western Australia for the Perth International Regatta which will take place from 16 - 21 November 2010.

Opting for an international freight forwarding company with a highly dedicated and specialised team, event directorDarren Beazley said: "The movement of all sailing equipment is such a big undertaking so it was absolutely necessary for Perth to team up with the leaders in the industry to ensure that everything is moved quickly and efficiently from overseas and arrives here intact."

The Perth International Regatta is the major test event for the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships and is therefore the perfect practice run for international and Australian crews. Moreover, all components of November's race will be used for the World Championships in December, including tracking and scoring, mark laying and certain parts of the onshore activities.

Schenker Australia Pty Ltd is also the official logistics provider for the movement of all sailing equipment for the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, which will be held on the same waters as Perth's International Regatta.
