ISAF Match Race Rankings for 16 April 2014

by ISAF on 17 Apr 2014
Taylor Canfield (l.) races downwind during the Congressional Cup 2014 Rich Roberts
The ISAF Match Race Rankings for 16 April 2014 have been released. Taylor Canfield (ISV) and Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) occupy the world number one spots in the Open and Women's Match Race Rankings.

Taylor Canfield (ISV) retained world number one in the Open Rankings having overcome world number two Ian Williams (GBR) in the final of the ISAF Grade 1 Congressional Cup in Long Beach, California, USA.

A best of three final was raced to decide the 50th Congressional Cup Champion, with one win a piece it was all to play for going into the last race. During the pre-start a loud crunching noise indicated a collision between boats and the fortunes of fate swung to Canfield in the last minute.

First he noticed the six-inch chunk missing from the transom behind his feet, then he reached for the protest flag and moments later saw the on-water umpires affirm his protest with a blue flag, matching Williams' ID for that race.

Canfield stayed out of trouble to take the honours and extend his advantage at world number one.

The top five remain as per usual in the Open Rankings but further down there is significant movement following a busy period of match racing regattas.


Francesco Bruni (ITA) is one of the month's biggest movers having climbed 54 places to world number 48. The former world number one only counts five regattas to his name and having finished third at the ISAF Grade 1 Congressional Cup the Italian was significantly promoted back in the top 50.

The Italian will sail on the 2014 Alpari World Match Racing Tour and will look to work his way back to the top as the tour unfolds.

Croatia's Tomislav Basic moved up from world number 31 to world number 21 after he won the ISAF Grade 3 Slovenian National Open Match Race Championships in Izola, Slovenia. The Croatian counts eight regattas to his points total and of those eight he has won six. His personal best ranking of world number 10 came in February 2000.

Having won the ISAF Grade 3 Match Race Thailand Championship Maximilian Soh (SIN) moved to a personal best ranking of world number 36. The Singaporean is on a run of seven straight victories at Grade 3 and 5 regattas and has been rewarded having previously sat at world number 50.

Korea's Gunwoo Park has broken into the top 100 for the first time in his career following a third at the Match Race Thailand Championship. Park counts six regattas to his points total and climbs from world number 107 to world number 66.

With several ISAF Grade 3, 4 and 5 regattas taking place in the latter part of February, all throughout March and the early part of April further movement is visible in the April release.

Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) moved into back into the world number one spot in the Women's Match Race Rankings for the first time since July 2013.

The Danish sailor moves ahead of Lucy Macgregor (GBR) as the British sailor now counts seven regattas to Ulrikkeholm's eight.

The Marinassess Women's Match Race Regatta was the only event to take place in the current period with those competing reaping the rewards of solid results.

Milly Bennett (AUS) and her crew of Seldon Coventry, Alice Tarnawski, Kajsa Doyle and Jess Russell, representing the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, won the event finishing top of the round robin. As a result Bennett moves to world number nine from world number 15, a personal best for the Australian.

Emma May (AUS) finished as runner up and moves to world number 41 from world number 104.

The next scheduled Women's Match Racing event is the ISAF Women's Match Racing World Championship set to be held in Cork, Ireland from 3-8 June 2014.

Taming the beast-a conversation with Stuart Meurer of Parker Hannifin
While AC72 cats were fast, they difficult to control, so Oracle partnered with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way. If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
