ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 12 August 2013


'Mathew Belcher and Will Ryan after crossing the 470 Worlds finish line'    Thom Touw ©

The ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 12 August 2013 have been released with Australia's Mat Belcher still dominating in the Men’s 470 after a 17th straight victory and fourth world title in a row. The USA's Caleb Paine has shifted Aussie Brendan Casey from the Finn top spot whilst Croatians have risen to number one in the 49er for the very first time. Six British sailors also emerge among the top three.

Mat Belcher made it 17 consecutive victories in a row at the 470 Worlds, his fourth World Championship title in as many years. The victory was Belcher’s ninth straight regatta gold medal with Will Ryan and solidified their stronghold on the Men’s 470 World Rankings.

Austria’s Matthias Schmid and Florian Reichsteaedter remain at world number two whilst there is significant movement below the top two.

Luke Patience and Joe Glanfield came through in fifth at the 470 Worlds and jumped up to world number eight from world number 21.

Japan’s Kazuto Doi and Kimihiko Imamura have taken in seven 470 events since March 2013 and have recorded some up and down results. A 26th at the 470 Worlds moved them to world number 18 from world number 27, a personal best for the Japanese duo.

Moving to the top of the Women’s 470 Rankings for the first time is Lara Vadlau and Jolanta Ogar. The pair have had a busy 2013 taking in seven regattas that culminated in a European bronze medal in June and a silver medal most recently at the Worlds.

Current Olympic Champions and new 470 World Champions Jo Aleh and Olivia Powrie (NZL) are at world number 14 but only count four results compared to their rivals around them who count the full six.

2012 Women’s 470 Champions and London 2012 Olympic silver medallists Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark returned to the boat at the 2013 470 Worlds, finishing down in 12th position. They move from world number 85 to world number 41.

Billy Besson and Marie Riou (FRA) won the inaugural Nacra 17 World Championship in The Hague, The Netherlands. The pair have taken in three regattas putting together a fourth at ISAF Sailing World Cup Palma, a second at ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres and a gold medal in the Hague. Out of 600 points available to them they hold 574 and are currently ranked world number 10 as their rivals count more events to their total.

Holding onto the world number one spot for the second release running is Thomas Zajac and Tanja Frank (AUT) who finished tenth at the Nacra 17 Worlds after claiming a bronze at the 100-point Kieler-Woche in advance.

After the Nacra 17 Worlds changes are prevalent all throughout the latest rankings.

Alex Maloney and Molly Meech (NZL) remain at world number one in the 49erFX for the third consecutive ranking release. They are followed by Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze (BRA) and Italy’s Giulia Conti and Francesca Clapcich.

Ida Marie Baad and Marie Thusgaard Olsen (DEN) were crowned European Champions at the start of July and took the full 100-points to move up one spot to world number eight.

Croatians Pavle Kostov and Petar Cupac - 2012 49er European and Youth World Championship -  Roberto Vuilleumier  

Croatia’s Pavle Kostov and Petar Cupac take world number one in the 49er for the first time after steady results since the turn of the year. The pair count six regattas in their points total and whilst they only have one podium finish to their name in the current period they have shown the most consistency and have been duly rewarded with the top spot.

Niko Delle Karth and Nikolaus Resch (AUT) are the biggest movers jumping from world number 81 to world number 49. The pair won gold at the 100-point Kieler Woche and came eighth at the European Championship to set up their progression.

Brendan Casey’s (AUS) reign at Finn world number one, which started on 19 September 2012, has come to an end after Caleb Paine (USA) dislodged him. Paine’s consistent results over the last 12-months resulted in him taking top spot. Casey meanwhile fell to world number four with Great Britain’s Mark Andrews and Andrew Mills moving to personal bests of world number two and number three.

Vasilij Zbogar won gold at the 100-point Finn Europeans and sits at world number 17, counting four regatta scores.

Max Salminen’s progression in the Finn continues and he moves up 25 places to world number 29.

Tom Burton in action -  Thom Touw_©  

Tom Burton (AUS) remains atop of the Laser rankings for the seventh consecutive release whilst compatriot Ryan Palk sits behind him. The Australians haven’t sailed since May but their performances over 12 months have been strong enough for them to maintain their positions.

Australian sailors take four of the top five spots with Sweden’s Jesper Stalheim, current world number three, sandwiched between the top two and Matt Wearn at world number four and Ashley Brunning at world number five.

There is no change right at the top of the Laser Radial rankings as Tatiana Drozdovskaya (BLR) sits comfortably ahead of the pack.

Finland’s Tuula Tenkanen took gold at the 100-point Kieler Woche which pushed her up from world number 16 up to world number seven, four places off her personal best.

Making a huge climb up the rankings is Russia’s Svetlana Shnitko who put in steady performances at the 100-point Kieler-Woche and Laser Europa Cup – Germany regattas. The Russian sailor moves up from world number 104 to world number 59.

Also making an impressive climb is American sailor Simone Staff. She counts three regattas in her points total and an eighth at the Laser North American Championship pushes her from world number 103 to number 62, a personal best.

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day 12 onboard Team Alvimedica. There is no question as to the origins of the phrase 'down in the doldrums;' the monotony of these days is painfully apparent.

A day and a night of uncertainty - later, the Doldrums will come to an end for the Volvo Ocean Race teams. By tomorrow morning, the fleet should be sailing safely in the southeasterly trade winds. So – who won this equatorial lottery? What was the best place to cross this convergence zone, where two hemispheres and two weather systems collide? ... [more]
