ISAF World Match Race Rankings – Mirsky and Tunnicliffe top list

by ISAF on 24 Nov 2011
. .
ISAF World Match Race Rankings - ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) retains her position at the top of the Women’s Match Race Rankings for the third rankings release running whilst Torvar Mirsky (AUS) has moved to the World number one spot.

Mirsky has timed his run in for the World Match Racing Tour title perfectly and with the Monsoon Cup to go the Australian is just six points behind Tour leader Ian Williams (GBR) and Francesco Bruni (ITA). All three occupy the top spots in the Open Match Race Rankings with Williams moving from number three to number two and Bruni dropping from World number one to number three.

With the Monsoon Cup on at the moment and so few points separating the three on the Tour and in the Rankings the next release may also see a change at the top.

Berlin Match Race winner Keith Swinton (AUS) continues to climb up the rankings and after his victory in Germany the Australian has broken into the top ten. By winning the ISAF Grade 1 event he moves up to a rankings best of number nine. Alvaro Marinho (POR) was edged out narrowly by Swinton 3-2 in Berlin but nonetheless his impressive performance sees him climb up five places to number 12.

Simone Ferrarese (ITA) won the ISAF Grade 2 Master Espana Match Race in October and his victory resulted in the Italian moving up to number 17.

Greece’s Stratis Andreadis won the YCG Platu 25 Match Race and Hellenic Match Race Nationals Championship since the last rankings release. The two victories has pushed the Greek sailor up to a personal best of number 31.

One of this month’s biggest movers is Sam Pearson (GBR). The young British sailor has moved from number 110 up to number 80 following his 19th place finish at the World Match Racing Tours Argo Gold Cup and victory at the RYA National Match Racing Championships Qualifier.

ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) continues to hold a grip on the World number one spot after another great month for the American. Before she flew out to Puerto Rico, where she received the ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year award, she won the US Sailing Team Alphagraphics October Qualifier to take her team to the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships.

But with Perth around the corner Tunnicliffe’s position is under threat as Claire Leroy (FRA) heads into the regatta on form following her victory at the Grade 3 Championnat de France de Voile Match Racing and second place at the Grade 1 St Quay Women Match Racing at Portrieux, France.

Lucy Macgregor (GBR) overcame Leroy at Portrieux and the result subsequently pushed Macgregor up into number three and within touching distance of the World number one and number two.

Busan Cup Women's International Match Race winner Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) moved from number 20 up to number 14 after defeating Stephanie Hazard (NZL) in the final in Korea. Hazard’s second place moved her up to number 15.

Alexa Bezel (SUI) is the month’s biggest mover. The Swiss sailors last ranking position was number 107 but after a third place at the International Geneva Match Race she has made great strides and sits at number 55.

The next release of the ISAF World Match Race Rankings will be 11 January 2012.

Vendee Globe- No tethers in Southern Ocean?
I was interested to see that Seb is wearing neither a pfd nor a harness while racing in the Southern Ocean. Take a look at this pic of Seb Josse racing in the Vendée Globe. He is in the Southern Ocean sailing in rough seas and I imagine he is hitting speeds in the mid-twenties. I know what it’s like to sail down there. I have done numerous Southern Ocean transits and I know it to be an unforgiving region. So I was interested to see that Seb is wearing neither a pfd nor a harness. Interesting.
