National champion Rohini Rau left for Europe to participate in an intensive one-month Laser Radial training camp to be conducted by specialist coaches at Lake Garda in Italy.

Prior to that, she had attended a four-week camp in September conducted by the YAI and Sports Authority of India in Chennai. The Royal Madras Yacht Club sailor is looking forward to becoming India's entry in the Laser Radial for the 2012 Olympics.

Ranked 10th in Asia, Rohini had finished 43rd at the recent Olympic test event at Weymouth. She would take part in the Asian sailing championships in Malaysia in February 2012 where the laser radial will be a women's category event.

Meanwhile, her equally talented brother, Ajay Rau, is training hard for Sail Melbourne, a qualifying event for the 2011 Perth Worlds. AMM Foundation, SDAT, SAI and YAI are supporting the two sailors.
