The ISAF World Match Race Rankings for 19 June 2013 has now been released. Ian Williams (GBR) holds onto world number one in the Open Match Race Rankings whilst ISAF Women's Match Racing World Championship silver medallist Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) moves to the world number one position on the women's rankings.

Ian Williams (GBR) makes it 19 months at the top of the ISAF Match Race Rankings, the World Champion picked up his first Tour win of 2013 at Match Race Germany and consolidates his position at the top with almost 400 points separating him from the number two ranked skipper.

Returning to the fray is Mathieu Richard (FRA) who climbs 14 places back up to world number four. Richard, world number one in 2008 and 2009, finished third at Match Race Germany and went on to claim the spoils from the Alpari World Match Tour Korea Match Cup earlier this month, despatching Taylor Canfield (ISV) in the final. He may have been runner up to Richard in Korea but this ranking sees a lifetime best for the 24 year old from St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, as he moves three places up the rankings to world number two.

The final podium place in Korea belonged to Adam Minoprio (NZL) and his ranking rise continues since he took time out to compete in the Volvo Ocean Race. At world number 31 and only counting results from four events it seems just a matter of time before the 2009 Tour champion Minoprio returns to the top ten.


Japan's Wataru Sakamoto breezed past Maximillian Soh (SIN) at the ISAF Nations Cup Asian Regional Final in Vladivostok, Russia to qualify for August's Grand Final in Denmark. Sakamato is further rewarded by a 30 point climb up the rankings to world number 48. Soh also moves up, to world number 68.

One other ISAF Grade 2 took place since the last ranking, the Sails of White Nights EUROSAF Match Race Open Championship. Andrew Arbuzov (RUS) defeated Simone Ferrarese (ITA) in the final and moves up 19 places to number 67.

Staffan Lindberg (FIN) won the ISAF Grade 3 GKSS Spring Cup and Stena Match Cup qualifier to move up to world number 18 with Joachim Ashenbrenner (DEN) using his second place to move from 17 to world number 15.

Michele Ivaldi (ITA) returns to the ISAF World Match Race Rankings after competing at his first graded event since the ISAF Match Racing World Championnship in 2005, where he won a gold medal crewing for James Spithill (AUS). Second place at the GRADO3 in Ravenna Italy sees Ivaldi re-enter at world number 385. The win in Ravenna went to Jacopo Pasini which is his ninth consecutive graded event win and he climbs 20 places up to world number 51.

The final word goes to Ryan Davidson (USA) who picked up his first graded event win at the CMRC Spring Invitational to climb 188 places up to world number 194.


There is a change at the top of the women's world rankings following the 2013 ISAF Women's Match Racing World Championship in Busan, Korea. Silver medallist Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) climbs four places to the world number one position for the first time in her career. The 2013 ISAF World Champion is the 2012 Olympic gold medallist, Tamara Echegoyen (ESP) who led the Championship from start to finish. The points she gains sees her climb four places to match her career best at world number five.

The ISAF Women's Match Racing World Championships in Busan, Korea also saw a return to the helm by Katie Spithill (AUS). The world number two back in 2009 put on a solid performance in Busan, beating Russian Olympic skipper Ekaterina Skudina in the petit-final to take the bronze medal. Counting just the one event result Spithill is ranked at number 39.

The home team in Busan, skippered by Sungeun Choi (KOR) may have finished in ninth place but were delighted with their experience and race win. Choi's ranking improves by 46 to sit inside the top 100 for the first time at world number 84.

The ISAF Grade 3 US women's National Championship took place in Chicago with Jennifer Wilson winning her first ISAF graded event. Since a brief spell on the women's rankings back in 2009, Wilson has been a regular at Open events in Chicago but her 2013 US title sees her re-enter the women's list at world number 55. With double world champion Sally Barkow calling tactics, Wilson despatched Stephanie Roble (USA) in the final. Roble, who also finished third at the recent St Quay Women's Match Racing regatta climbs 19 places to world number 15.

Lucy MacGregor (GBR) claimed gold at the St Quay Women's Match Racing, the only ISAF Grade 1 regatta in this ranking release and the first event of the 2013 WIMRS. MacGregor moves up to world number two, knocking Ekaterina Skudina (RUS) down to number three. Julie Bossard (FRA) uses her points from St Quay to move up four places to world number four.
