ISAF Match Race Rankings for October 30, 2013 have now been released. There is no change at world number one in the Open and Women's Match Race Rankings with Taylor Canfield (ISV) and Lucy Macgregor (GBR) holding firm at the top.


Open Rankings

Taylor Canfield's (ISV) third place finish at the Argo Group Gold Cup was enough for him to retain the world number one spot and to take the overall lead in the Alpari World Match Racing Tour.

ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year nominee and world number two Ian Williams (GBR) finished sixth in Bermuda and dropped to second, ten points behind Canfield in the Tour standings.

Francesco Bruni (ITA) secured victory at the Argo Group Gold Cup by defeating Ben Ainslie (GBR) in the final. The result pushes the former world number one up to world number 115 from world number 196. The Italian counts four events in his ranking total having devoted time to Luna Rossa Challenge after finishing the 2011 World Match Racing Tour as runner-up.

Ainslie re-enters the rankings at world number 223.

Staffan Lindberg (FIN) continues to climb up the rankings and after taking top spot at the ISAF Grade 2 Geneva International Match Race he moves to world number nine and just four spots off his best ranking of number five that came in October 2007.

Ireland's Philip Bendon came out on top at the ISAF Grade 3 EUROSAF Match Racing, Open Youth European Championship in Lake Constance, Germany and as a result moves from world number 101 to world number 57, a personal best.

France's Guillaume Pirouelle was unable to defend his title in Lake Constance and came through in fourth. Nonetheless the strong result gives the young Frenchman his best ranking of world number 81, moving up from world number 129.

With ISAF Grade 3, 4 and 5 regattas aplenty this month there is further movement down the rankings.

Women's Rankings

Lucy Macgregor (GBR) is firmly positioned at world number one in the Women's Rankings with over 1,000 points separating her and world number two Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN).

Two ISAF Grade 3 regattas took place in the current period ensuring some movement below the top spots.

Australia's Rayshele Martin took the honours at the Australian Women's Match Racing Championship in New South Wales. Martin overcame Milly Bennett (AUS) to take maximum points from the event.

The result pushes Martin from world number 60 to world number 25, a personal best whilst Bennett moves up two spots to world number 19.

Anne-Claire Le Berre (FRA) took gold at the France Women's Match Racing Championships after strong weather forced cancellation on the final day. Le Berre had the best of the completed Round Robin and the advantage going into the final stages however strong winds forced postponement and handed Le Berre the title.

The French sailor moves up to world number 21 counting five events. Runner-up Julie Bossard (FRA) stays at world number 10.
