There is no change at the top of either the Open or the Women's Rankings as Ian Williams (GBR) and Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) continue their winning ways and stay at world number one.

Ian Williams (GBR) claimed his second Alpari World Match Racing Tour victory of the season in Sopot, Poland, defeating Mathieu Richard (FRA) in the final. Williams extends his lead at the world number one position ahead of Taylor Canfield (ISV) at world number two and Richard at number three.

Completing the top five are Bjorn Hansen (SWE) and Nicolai Sehested (DEN). Announced yesterday as part of the Danish Volvo Ocean Race line up, Sehested today moves up one place to a career best of world number five.

At the inaugural ISAF Youth Match Racing World Championship in Helsinki, Finland Joachim Aschenbrenner (DEN) won gold and he is rewarded with a climb of four places up the rankings to world number eight. Runner up, Sam Gilmour (AUS), who finished sixth at the Grade 2 Jubilee Yava Trophy, rises six places to a career best at world number 13.

Returning to the Graded event circuit, Nevin Snow (USA) has three podium positions to his name. At his first graded event as skipper in two years, Snow claimed the 2014 World University Match Race Championship title before picking up a silver medal at the Governor's Cup and then bronze at the ISAF Youth Match Racing Worlds. These results are revealed in a massive ranking position climb of 760 places to world number 80.

Arthur Herreman (FRA) moves up ten places to world number 21 after picked up the silver medal at the ISAF Grade 2 Internatiounaux de France in Pornichet, France and the ISAF Grade 3 Pomorski Match Race in Poland. There has been less silverware for Valerio Galati (ITA) but sixth place at both the ISAF Youth Worlds and the World University Championship takes him 83 places up the rankings to world number 56.

Two more regatta wins sees Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) hold firm at the top of the Women's Rankings ahead of Anna Kjellberg (SWE) at world number two.

In a dramatic final against Kjellberg, Ulrikkeholm took her fourth consecutive win at the ISAF Grade 1 Lysekil Women's Match in Gulmar, Sweden. The Danish team also took the win at the ISAF Grade 2 Women's Golfe Du Morbihan Match Race in France.

The bronze medal in Lysekil was claimed by Lotte Meldgaard Pedersen (DEN) who maintains her position as world number five. Meldgaard Pedersen's opponent in the petit-final was Caroline Sylvan (SWE) and she climbs one place up the rankings to world number seven.

Klaartje Zuiderbaan (NED) continues her return to the top ten and now counts results from six regattas from the maximum of eight. Second at the ISAF Grade 2 Women's Golfe du Morbihan and seventh in Lysekil sees her climb nine places to world number four - her highest position since August 2007.

The new World University Women's Match Racing Champion, Annabel Vose (GBR) climbs 19 places to world number 13. Since joining the ISAF Women's World Match Race Rankings in April, the 2011 420 World Champion now counts points from four results to her ranking points.

Silver medallist Pauline Courtois (FRA) moves up 14 places to world number 16 whilst bronze medallist Juliana Poncioni Mota (BRA) climbs 48 places to number 33.
