ISAF Match Race Rankings - Tunnicliffe and Williams remain in pole

by ISAF on 19 Apr 2012
. .
In the Women’s and Open ISAF Match Race Rankings Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) and Ian Williams (GBR) continue to remain in pole although there has been significant movement in the trailing packs.

Open Rankings

Ian Williams (GBR) kick started his 2012 match race campaign following his second consecutive Congressional Cup victory. Held at Long Beach Yacht Club in California, USA, the World no.1 proved his worth to take the ISAF Grade 1 event beating Gavin Brady (NZL) in the final.

Brady, who has finished on the Congressional Cup podium seven times, has been inactive for the past 12 months and is the current World no.250. But Williams’ victory further strengthens his hold on the World no.2 spot, a position he has held since the turn of the year.

Laurie Jury (NZL) finished ninth at the Congressional Cup which is enough to move the New Zealander into the top ten for the first time. And it is also new territory for Taylor Canfield (ISV) who moves into the top 25 for the first time following his third place finish in California.

Keith Swinton’s regatta victory at ISAF Grade 1 Open de España in Calpe, Spain has moved him up to a personal best of World no.7. Swinton finished eighth at the ISAF Grade 2 Trofeo SIR Thomas Lipton Match Race in Javea, Spain ahead of the event to further bolster his points total ahead of the rankings release.

Thomas Lipton Match Race victory Mads Ebler (DEN) drops a place to World no.13 after he finished down the leader board in seventh in Calpe.

Women’s Rankings
2011 ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year, Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) stormed to a regatta victory at the Trofeo S.A.R. Princess Sofia MAPFRE defeating Olivia Price (AUS) in the final. The Americans win further solidifies her position as the world’s best women’s match racer at the moment.

Ekaterina Skudina (RUS) won the other ISAF Grade 1 event in March, the St Quay Women Match Racing in France. The Russian overcame home favourite Claire Leroy (FRA) to take the honours and moves up to World no.4 a personal best.

Slovenia’s Vesna Dekleva Paoli had a good month finishing third at the Seascape Match Race in Portoroz, Slovenia before winning the Slovenian Open Match Racing Championship in Izola, Slovenia. She climbs from World no.23 to World no.18.

With the fourth of seven ISAF Sailing World Cup Regattas, Semaine Olympique Francaise in Hyeres, France, just around the corner and eight of the world’s top ten Women’s Match Racers registered to sail there may be some movement in the next rankings release.
