49erFX to debut at Melbourne World Cup

The women's new Olympic skiff, the 49erFX, will be seen on the international stage for the first time at the Melbourne World Cup event with five entries. Norwegian twins Ragna and Maia Agerup sailed at the 2012 Four Star Pizza ISAF Youth Worlds in the 29er and will mix it up in a fleet that features 2008 Olympic gold medallist Tessa Parkinson, Nathan Outteridge's sister Haylee and a strong youth pairing of Alex Maloney and Molly Meech. Sail Melbourne is to be hosted at Sandringham Yacht Club, 2-8 December 2012.
