Canfield Happy To Be The Hunted © OnEdition / WMRT http://wmrt.com/
In the ISAF Match Race Rankings, Taylor Canfield (ISV) and Lucy Macgregor (GBR) commence 2014 at the top of the field.

Taylor Canfield (ISV) begins 2014 like he ended 2013, atop of the Open Match Race Rankings. The US Virgin Islander was crowned ISAF World Match Racing Champion at the Monsoon Cup, the final event of the 2013 Alpari World Match Racing Tour and will be seen as the one to beat throughout 2014.

World number two Ian Williams (GBR) held world number one for 16 consecutive ranking releases prior to Canfield taking it in August 2013 and will want to regain top spot in 2014.

Lower down the rankings, Sam Gilmour (AUS) moves into the top 25 for the first time in his career following a medal rush in December and January. The Australian won the ISAF Grade 3 Kingdom Match Race Qualification regatta in Zallaq, Bahrain in December and followed it up with another victory.

Gilmour finished ahead of Olli-Pekka Lumijärvi (FIN) to take full points from the ISAF Grade 2 Kingdom Match Race. Runner up Lumijärvi moves up two places to world number 30.

Competing on home waters in January at the ISAF Grade 2 Warren Jones International Youth Regatta, Gilmour almost made it a hat trick of wins for the current ranking period but lost out to brother David Gilmour (AUS).

With three strong performances Younger brother Sam moves to world number 25 from world number 33 whilst David Gilmour also hits a personal best, climbing two spots to world number 12.

Despite losing out in the final of the Cleanport Winter Match Race series - Act 3 to Max Trippolt (AUT), Christina Binder (AUT) is one of the biggest movers. In a winner takes all single race final in Izola, Slovenia Trippolt got the better of his compatriot but Binder climbs a mammoth 81 places to world number 89. Trippolt's victory moves him to world number 44

With several ISAF Grade 3, 4 and 5 regattas there is further movement in the Open Rankings.


Lucy Macgregor (GBR), Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) and Anna Kjellberg (SWE) retain the top three spots in the Women's Match Race Rankings.

The trio have held the leading spots collectively since 30 October 2013 whilst Macgregor has been at world number one since 28 August 2013.

Below the top three there are several shifts in position as sailors lose regattas off their points total based on the 24-month rolling system.

The next scheduled Women's Match Racing event is the ISAF Grade 3 Marinassess Women's Match Racing Regatta set to be held in Sydney, Australia from 1-2 March 2014.
