ISAF Sailing World Cup Standings announced

by ISAF on 21 Jun 2012
. .
Kieler-Woche, the final ISAF Sailing World Cup Regatta 2011-12, was held in Germany at the Kieler Yacht Club. After the conclusion of the regatta in Kiel today the World Cup Standings have been decided.

The Finn title was up for grabs in Kiel with Caleb Paine (USA) and Brendan Casey (AUS) fighting it out to claim the honours. Paine came into the regatta with a ten point advantage which in the end was enough to take the Finn title. Casey managed to reduce the deficit to six points but had to settle for second place. Paine’s team mate Zach Railey (USA) completes the Finn podium.

Tom Burton (AUS) and Charlie Buckingham (USA) had a good lead at the top of the Laser Standings coming into Kieler-Woche. The pair did not compete in Kiel as Andy Maloney (NZL) came into the regatta as the highest placed sailor in the Standings meaning Burton and Buckingham could not be overthrown. Burton’s victory marks a strong year for the Australian who recorded three podium finishes whilst Buckingham proved consistency is the key despite not finishing on the podium.

The third place position in the Laser Standings was up for grabs in Kiel and it went Maloney’s way who finished third behind Germany’s Philipp Buhl and Simon Grotelueschen at Kieler-Woche.

Tobias Schadewaldt and Hannes Baumann’s Kieler-Woche victory leapfrogged them into third place in the 49er Standings. But Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen (AUS) take the 49er title after another successful year. Manu Dyen and Stephane Christidis (FRA) finish second.

With none of the leading sailors competing in the Laser Radial, Alison Young (GBR) takes the title after a fantastic year followed by Delta Lloyd Regatta winner Krystal Weir and Sail Melbourne, US SAILING’s Rolex Miami OCR and Semaine Olympique Francaise winner Lijia Xu (CHN).

Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page (AUS) take the Men’s 470 title for the third year running whilst Amanda Clark and Sarah Lihan (USA) end the World Cup season at the top of the Women’s Standings.

In the 2.4mR Great Britain’s Helena Lucas had done enough to seal the title ahead of Kieler-Woche and only a regatta victory by two sailors would have shifted Megan Pascoe (GBR) from second spot. In the end Pascoe was left undisturbed and Paul Tingley’s (CAN) fourth place in Kiel lifted him above Thierry Schmitter (NED) to round off the podium.

Star sailing commences on 21-24 June but with the entry list only featuring Xavier Rohart and Pierre-Alexis Ponsot (FRA) the French pair have taken the Star title. Fredrik Loof and Max Salminen (SWE) and Robert Scheidt and Bruno Prada (BRA) finish in second and third.

No Men’s or Women’s RS:X racing took place in Kiel therefore the final Standings were determined from the results of the previous six regattas.

Coming out on top in the Men’s RS:X was Sebastian Wang-Hansen (NOR) followed by Dorian Van Rijsselberge (NED) and Julien Bontemps (FRA). Flavia Tartaglini’s two podium finishes were enough to give her the Women’s RS:X title whilst Norway are in the top three again as Jannicke Stalstrom picks up silver. Jessica Crisp (AUS) settles for third.

Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) had sealed the Women’s Match Racing title at Skandia Sail for Gold, the final World Cup regatta featuring Women’s Match Racing. Olivia Price (AUS) clinched silver after her victory in Weymouth and Lucy Macgregor (GBR) finished in the final podium spot.
