'Marit Bouwmeester (NED), Laser Radial - 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyeres'    Thom Touw ©

The ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 28 April 2014 have been released. The three medallists from the ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères occupy world number one, two and three in the Laser Radial.

Bronze medallist and Mallorca victor Marit Bouwmeester (NED) is at world number one and is followed by Hyères gold recipient Evi Van Acker (BEL). Tatiana Drozdovskaya (BLR) is at world number three after she picked up silver.

Drozdovskaya has competed at all of the 2013-2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup regattas and has reaped the rewards sitting at world number three. The Belorussian took silver in Qingdao, gold in Melbourne, fourth in Miami and 14th in Mallorca. She ended the series with silver to cap off the series.

Great Britain's Hannah Snellgrove made her first Medal Race appearance at ISAF Sailing World Cup and subsequently took her best World Cup regatta finish, an eighth place. As a result the Briton has been pushed up to world number 19 from world number 29, a personal best.

There is no change in the top three of the Laser Rankings following the conclusion of the 2013-2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup series.

Tonci Stipanovic (CRO) retains world number one, eight points ahead of world number teo Tom Burton (AUS) whilst Bruno Fontes (BRA) remains at world number three.

Burton won gold at ISAF Sailing World Cup Mallorca and Hyères but Stipanovic remained consistent throughout the whole ISAF Sailing World Cup series and a seventh in Mallorca meant he held on to top spot.

Seven Laser graded events took place in the current period so there are plenty of ups and downs prevalent in the Laser World Rankings.

Tom Burton (AUS) overcame Andy Maloney (NZL) in the Laser whilst Evi Van Acker (BEL) fought hard to take Laser Radial gold.



With two ISAF Sailing World Cup gold medals and a silver to their name Vittorio Bissaro and Silvia Sicouri (ITA) have moved to world number one in the Nacra 17 for the first time.

The Italians were somewhat fortunate to come away with Hyères gold after an error by Darren Bundock and Nina Curtis (AUS). The Australians missed the course change signal and sailed ahead of the upwind mark which allowed the chasing pack to overtake them. The Australians finished at the back of the pack which handed the Italians gold.

Ben Saxton and Hannah Diamond (GBR) finished sixth in Hyères and lose the world number one spot they had held for two rankings releases. They are now at world number two.

Billy Besson and Marie Riou (FRA) count four regattas out of a possible six in the Nacra 17 rankings including their second place in Hyères. They are at world number 14 whilst Bundock and Curtis, who count three regattas, are at world number 17.

Vittorio Bissaro and Silvia Sicouri (ITA) took Nacra 17 gold following an Australian mistake which saw them sail the wrong course.



Ivan Kljakovic Gaspic (CRO) overhauled Australia's Oliver Tweddell to take the world number one spot.

Gaspic took gold at the 50-point Split Olympic Sailing Week and backed it up with silver in Hyères to move to world number one, a position he last held in the Finn Open Rankings in May 2011.

Tweddell's European adventure proved to be a disappointing one for the young Australian as he was hampered with injury. A 35th and a 19th in Hyères sees him slip to world number two.

Thomas Le Breton (FRA) moved from world number 13 to world number three following two exceptional performances Mallorca and Hyères. Two podium finishes ensures he matches his personal best of world number three.

One of the biggest movers this month is Michele Paoletti (ITA). The Italian has had a steady 12 month period and counting four good 200-point regatta scores and a second place at a 100-pointer he moves up to a personal best of world number eight from world number 23.

Pieter Jan Postma (NED) was the happiest man in Hyères after he picked up his World Cup gold in his career.



Australia's Mat Belcher and Will Ryan picked up two gold, silver and a bronze during the 2013-2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup series. With 200 points on the line at all four regattas sailed in, they retain their world number one status.

Sime Fantela and Igor Marenic (CRO) raced in all five of the ISAF Sailing World Cup regattas. The pair picked up silver in Qingdao, China and Melbourne, Australia. A fourth followed in Miami, USA before they took their first ever ISAF Sailing World Cup gold medal in Mallorca, Spain. A seventh in Hyères brought their series to a close and sit at world number two.

ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami gold medallists Sofian Bouvet and Jeremie Mion (FRA) finished third overall in Hyères and move up one place to world number three.

Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie (NZL) hold a perfect ranking score in the Women's 470 and hold 1,000 points in the world number one spot.

Over the 12 month qualifying period the Kiwis hold four 200-point regatta victories – World Cup Qingdao, Mallorca and Hyères and the 470 World Championships – as well as two 100 point regatta gold medals.

The Kiwis have raised the bar in the Women's 470 and are on a run of four straight victories.

Camille Lecointre and Helene Defrance (FRA) drop to world number two whilst Sophie Weguelin and Eilidh Mcintyre (FRA) retain world number three.

As a result of two steady performances at ISAF Sailing World Cup Mallorca and Hyères Russia's Natalia Ivanova and Nadezhda Gerasimova are the biggest climbs, going from world number 62 to world number 40.

Mat Belcher and Will Ryan (AUS) returned to winning ways in the Men's 470 whilst Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie (NZL) made it four Women's 470 wins on the bounce.



Peter Burling and Blair Tuke (NZL) have four straight regatta victories in the 49er fleet and are currently at world number 16 as those around them count points from six regattas.

The Kiwis took convincing victories at ISAF Sailing World Cup Mallorca and Hyères and are in a good place in advance of the 2014 49er European and ISAF World Championships.

Jonas Warrer and Peter Lang (DEN) top the pile on 960 points. Over the 12 month period the Danes have posted consistent top placed results. A gold in Miami and silver in Mallorca puts them in a good place.

Ireland's Ryan Seaton and Matthew Mcgovern sailed with intent and focus in Hyères and came away with their first ever ISAF Sailing World Cup medal. Their silver medal earned them a good point's haul and pushed them up from world number 30 to world number 11.

Grael and Kunze (BRA) Womens 49erFX - 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup, Hyeres -  Thom Touw_©  

Brazil's Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze are the pair to beat in the 49erFX at the moment following two fantastic victories in the strong Mallorca and Hyères fleets.

They further solidified their world number one status whilst those behind shifted around.

Ida Marie Baad Nielsen and Marie Thusgaard Olsen (DEN) took bronze in Hyères and as a result move from world number five to world number two.

Whilst Alex Maloney and Molly Meech (NZL) walked away with silver in the French Riviera they count, for their standards, a disappointing 11th place from Mallorca. As a result the Kiwis are world number 15, some way off their personal best of world number one.

It was a repeat of the World Cup Mallorca podium in Hyères as Peter Burling and Blair Tuke (NZL) walked away with 49er honours and Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze (BRA) picked up 49erFX gold.



Ho Tsun Leung (HKG) retained world number one in the Men's RS:X following a 12th placed finish at ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères.

The Hong Kong racer counts five consistent results from the 12 month qualifying period but there is very little separating him and Ricardo Santos (BRA) who is at world number two.

Santos counts four regattas to his a points total and trails Leung by 35 points in the rankings.

ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères gold medallist Piotr Myszka (POL) is at world number 18. The Polish windsurfer counts the full 200 points from Hyères as well as top points from one 50-point and one 100-point regatta.

Flavia Tartaglini (ITA) has dislodged long time world number one Bryony Shaw (GBR) off the top in the Women's RS:X World Rankings.

Shaw had held world number one since 29 April 2013 but with Shaw out of action in Hyères, Tartaglini's fifth place finish pushes her into world number one, going 18 points clear of the Briton.

Moana Delle (GER) brought her Olympic sailing career to a glorious end in Hyères and with the full 200-points behind her she'll bow out at world number four.

New Zealand's Natalia Kosinska advanced from world number 20 to world number seven, a personal best, following a seventh in Hyères. The Kiwi has been impressive over the 12 month period and has been duly rewarded with promotion up the rankings.

Germany's Moana Delle brought her Olympic sailing career to a glorious end in the Women's RS:X whilst Piotr Myszka (POL) stood out above the rest in the Men's RS:X.

News - USA and the World

Volvo Ocean Race: Big gains for two boats in Doldrums *Feature by Richard Gladwell/Sail-World.com/nz
Two boats have made big gains in the Doldrums, with the western-most competitors apparently not stopping and sailing though the convergence zone between northern and southern hemispheres, without dropping below 8kts. Team Brunel and Abh Dhabi Ocean Racing have both made big gains on the rest of the fleet - and the two easternmost boats - Team Vestas Wind and Mapfre, in particular. ... [more]  

Groupe Beneteau today announced its sponsorship of the US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider and ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami. Groupe Beneteau is the world's leading yacht builder, and will now become a significant presence in high-performance sailing with its support of both the US national sailing team and North America's premier Olympic and Paralympic classes regatta. ... [more]  

The 2014 RS:X Youth Worlds kicked off on October 20th in Clearwater, USA, and it was hard work from the start: in 5-6 kt of breeze, offshore to start the day and side-on to close it, pumping was in order for the 54 boys and 28 girls gathered here for the 2014 RS:X Youth World Windsurfing Championships. ... [more]  

In spite of Hurricane Gonzalo's thrashing of the Onion Patch last week, the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and the people of Bermuda are ready to host the 2014 Argo Group Gold Cup, Stage 6 of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT). All 20 teams have arrived safely from their corners of the world and will practice for a day and race on Wednesday. ... [more]  

While the Renaissance Re Junior Gold Cup always offers opportunities for young people to have new experiences, coping with Hurricane Gonzalo offered the 14 competitors traveling from overseas to Bermuda a hurdle that strengthened their respect for this island nation. Many of the 14 competitors spent layover time in either hotels or airports and some are now guests in homes without electricity. ... [more]  

Dynamic Stability Systems welcomes last week’s decision by IMOCA to place no further restrictions on its class rule. This permits both the six new IMOCA 60s currently under construction, as well as the existing fleet, to be fitted with the lateral lifting foils which DSS has spent the last decade pioneering. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15. It’s the place where the northern and southern winds meet, where a sailing race can be won or lost in an instant. And with its complex and confusing conditions, lack of breeze, and stifling heat – it’s also a place that most sailors can’t wait to see the back of. But there is one good thing about the Doldrums. ... [more]  

The Atlantic has proved to be a test for the VO65s in the Volvo Ocean Race and their teams as a battle of gybing down the west coast of Africa broke out, keeping all boats in a relatively tight-knit pack for much longer than expected. Having passed Morocco and the Canaries, we were drawn to the tricky-to-handle magnet of Cape Verde. ... [more]  

It’s the dawn of a complicated day in the Volvo Ocean Race. Let’s face it: we’re not having a very good time on Dongfeng. We lost distance last night, and our leading position. The day got dull afterwards. Sailing straight ahead, with the spinnaker up, in light winds. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day 10 onboard Team SCA. Two days, eight hours, thirty-four minutes, and ten seconds, nine seconds, eight, seven, six, five… over the last few days the clock has gotten louder and louder as it counts down to October 23rd at noon—the time when we cross the equator and the time when myself and six other sailors join the rest of our crew in King Neptune’s court. ... [more]  

For Pablo Arrarte Elorza, the Volvo Ocean Race is a tough challenge. Not as far as physical effort is concerned because this likeable Spaniard is a very strong guy. For Pablo, the race is mostly a culinary war of attrition because the food that the team has bought with it on the race does little to please his gourmet palate. ... [more]  

The team at The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta are very happy to announce that entries are now open for the 2015 Regatta, taking place March 5 - 8. The team hopes to see lots of return entries as well as new ones this year, all coming to celebrate the event's 35th year. In order to celebrate this milestone year, there will be some new features this coming season. ... [more]  

After three complete days at sea only three boats competing in the 2014 Rolex Middle Sea Race have passed the northwest tip of Sicily, roughly the halfway point of the race. The prevailing wind remains weak, but is expected to strengthen this afternoon coinciding with the arrival of bulk of the fleet t the Egadi Islands. ... [more]  

Last week the Volvo Ocean Race was all about VMG downwind sailing, with Dongfeng being the star performer. After DFRT took the lead, they shortly lost it again 36 hours later after hitting something in the water and losing their rudder. Two hours later they were up and running again with the spare in. Impressive stuff. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race: Blogs from the Boats - Leg 1, Day 9 plus Videos *Feature by Richard Gladwell/Sail-World.nz/com
Several of the On Board Reporters aboard, provide their unique views of Leg 1, Day 9 of the Volvo Ocean Race - in text, images and video. ... [more]  

Rolex Middle Sea Race 2014 - Fight to the finish by Media Royal Malta Yacht Club
Igor Simicic's maxi, Esimit Europa 2 is expected to finish the Rolex Middle Sea Race in the early hours of tomorrow morning. However the 100ft carbon fibre canting keel Maxi is under serious pressure to secure their fourth Line Honours victory in the race. ... [more]  

Italy won two races (windward-leeward race (ninth race) and coastal race (11th race), Switzerland won the second race of the day (10th race) and Ireland the last one (12th race). A lot of tactics was required to make best use of the little wind. The first race (windward-leeward race, 0,8nm) started at four knots. A second start under black flag happened. ... [more]  

PredictWind have made significant improvements to the swell forecasting models and added new locations. Integrating the new 50km global wind forecast with ocean current data has created the most advanced swell modelling available online. By combining PredictWind forecast data with ocean current data, the effect of the wind on swells can be accounted for ... [more]  

The battle continues for the lead in the Volvo Ocean Race, with the front running being taken up by different competitors on a regular basis. With the first boats about to enter the Doldrums, anything can happen - with the outcome being decided by navigational skill and experience, rather than being resolved on a computer. ... [more]  

The Renaissance Re Junior Gold Cup, now in its 12th year, is known around the world as an international championship of junior champions. It runs parallel to the penultimate event on the World Match Racing Tour, the Argo Group Gold Cup. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race: Fleet charges the door of the Doldrums Casino *Feature by Richard Gladwell/Sail-World.com/nz
The Volvo Ocean Race has lifted intensity again on Day 9 with the fleet spread across 100nm of ocean and charging in a line for the turning point of Fernando de Noronha, 220nm off the Brazilian coast. ... [more]  

As expected the third day of the 2014 La Torche PWA Grand Slam proved to be a quiet affair with very light winds throughout the day. After a chilly and overcast start, the sun eventually broke through to produce another beautiful afternoon in La Torche. ... [more]  

The first eight days of the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race have been filled with more excitement and tighter racing than anyone could have anticipated. Up until Saturday morning, Leg One has left the fleet with few tactical options and therefore has kept everyone tightly packed as one unit of seven boats. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15. The sun’s out. It’s warm – not too hot, but warm enough for just a tee shirt. Ian Walker is stood at the helm of his Emirati boat, generous Atlantic trade winds whistling past his ears. 'We’re going straight through,' he claims, confidently. 'What Doldrums? - they’re going to say. Azzam isn’t even going to slow down.' ... [more]  

At 1700 CET in the Rolex Middle Sea Race, 113 yachts had rounded Stromboli, the active volcano that marks the most northerly point of the course. Race leader on the water, Esimit Europa 2, was less than 20 miles from Favignana and preparing to turn south with 289 miles to go and is expected to finish the race in the early hours of Wednesday 22 October, which would be well outside the course record ... [more]  

It is with great pleasure that the Star Sailors League announces that two more top Brazilian sailors will be joining the fleet of 20 super-champions taking part in the Star Sailors League Finals 2014 being held for the second consecutive year at Nassau Yacht Club in the Bahamas between December 1st and 7th. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day Nine onboard Team Alvimedica. It’s hard to explain the complexity of the weather in this part of the world. No computer model or forecaster can accurately predict the winds because the air here is dry and warm, 23c now, and the typical barometric pressure gradients that generate them become very weak. ... [more]  

Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Day Nine onboard Team SCA. We’re a boat on a mission: catch the fleet. And they’re getting closer by the mile. The first time I sailed past Cape Verde islands was in 2010 when I was helping deliver a catamaran from Gibraltar to Antigua, W.I. ... [more]

Tom Burton (AUS) retained World #1 in the Laser after a tremendous fight back at ISAF Sailing World Cup Qingdao where he picked up bronze. The Australia had a tough opening day, finishing down the pack in both races but as the week progressed he worked his way up and sealed bronze on the final day to keep hold of World #1. ... [more]
