ISAF Match Race Rankings - 26 September 2012

Wednesday, 26 September 2012

 

After a successful build up to the London 2012 Olympic Games, Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) continues to hold top spot in the Women’s Match Race Rankings. There is no budging Ian Williams (GBR) in the Open Rankings who continues to hold onto the World #1 spot, a position held since 4 August 2011.

Open Rankings

Despite coming eighth at St. Moritz Match Race, Great Britain’s Ian Williams continues to top the Open Rankings. The British match racer has been the man to beat and doesn’t look like losing the top spot with a string of strong results behind him.

Keith Swinton (AUS) has moved to a personal best of World #3 following his victory at the St. Moritz Match Race. The Australian overcame Mathieu Richard in an epic 3-2 final in Switzerland to take his first Alpari World Match Racing Tour event win.

The result in Switzerland resulted in former World #1 Richard moving from World #23 to World #10. As the runner up in Switzerland the Frenchman had a major points boost and having recently won the ISAF Grade 1 Internationaux de France de Match Racing Manu Minard Trophy in Pornichet, France he is on a good run of form.

Robert Nyberg (FIN) has enjoyed a successful run of period as of late which has seen him move from World #95 to World #57. Although he is several places shy of his best ranking position of #33 achieved in May 2012 a regatta victory at the ISAF Grade 3 Icebreaker Cup in Pirita, Estonia in August saw his run of form begin. He followed the victory up with a second at the Grade 3 Finnish Open Match Racing Championship and a fourth at the Grade 2 WASA Match which ensured a considerable climb for the Finnish sailor.

19-year-old Jakob Klitte (SWE) is another big mover following a busy August and September of match racing. With six top ten finishes from ISAF Grade 2-5 regattas the young Swede moves into the top 100 for the first time at world #78.

Women’s Rankings

After a successful build up to the London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition, Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) continues to top the bill in the Women’s Match Racing Rankings.

Claire Leroy (FRA) has moved to World #2, dislodging Lucy Macgregor (GBR), whilst Sally Barkow climbs three places to World #4.

The EUROSAF European Women Match Race Championship held in Santander, Spain from 11-15 September was the only Women’s Graded event since the last rankings release and the victory went the way of Silvia Roca (ESP).

Roca moves up to World #10 after the victory whilst runner-up, Julie Bossard (FRA), climbs one place to World #15. Rounding off the podium in Santander was Sweden’s Caroline Sylva, she moves to World #30.
