The ISAF World Match Race Rankings for 28 August 2013 have been released with Taylor Canfield (ISV) taking over as world number one in the Open Rankings, ending Ian Williams' run at the top that started on 11 January 2012. Lucy Macgregor (GBR) has moved to the top of the Women's Rankings pushing Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) to world number two.

Open
Taylor Canfield (ISV) has ended Ian Williams' (GBR) run at the top of the Open Rankings following two big victories at the Chicago Match Cup, the fourth stop of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour, and at the ISAF Grade II US Grand Slam also in Chicago, USA.

The U.S. Virgin Islands match racer is in strong contention for the ISAF World Match Racing World Championship with two Tour events to go and trails now world number two Williams by nine points on the 2013 leader board.

Stena Match Cup Sweden victor Bjorn Hansen (SWE) stays fourth whilst Australia's Keith Swinton moves from world number five to number three after steady performances in Sweden and USA.

Making a significant climb in this month's rankings is Australia's David Gilmour. Victories at the ISAF Nations Cup Grand Final in Middelfart, Denmark, an ISAF Grade I event and at the Grade II International Match Race for the Detroit Cup sees Gilmour climb up to world number 14 from number 24.

Gilmour overcame host nation favourites Nicolai Sehested in the ISAF Nations Cup Grand Final with a 3-0 victory. The Dane remains at world number 12.

Having fallen in the last two Open Rankings releases Przemek Tarnacki (POL) makes a climb this month to world number 16 from world number 38. The Polish match racer won the ISAF Grade II Nowe Warpno Match Race in Szczecin Bay, Poland followed by gold at the Gdynia Match Cup, an ISAF Grade 2 regatta to help his progression back up the rankings.

A string of second place finishes for Chris Steele (NZL) at the Governors Cup, Kintec Summer Invitational Match Racing Regatta, US Grand Slam and International Match Race for the Detroit Cup sees Kiwi youngster Chris Steele enter the top 25 for the first time.

Defeating Steele at the Governors Cup was Sam Gilmour (AUS) who shifts up to world number 50 from number 72 this month.

This month's biggest climber is another Steele defeater, Ryan Davidson (USA), who overcame the Kiwi at the Kintec Summer Invitational Match Racing Regatta in Vancouver, Canada. The victory moves the American a staggering 84 places up to world number 66.

Women's Rankings
Lucy Macgregor (GBR) reclaimed the world number one spot in the Women's Rankings after she finished second at both the New York Women's Invitational in Oyster Bay, USA and the Lysekil Women's Match in Sweden.

Macgregor's performances on the Inaugural Women's Match Race Series were consistent and culminated in her taking the first title, sealing it with her runners up spot in Lysekil. Her steady run of results also ensured a return to the top of the Women's Rankings for the first time since 6th July 2011 having played second fiddle to Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) all throughout 2012 and early 2013.

Lotte Meldgaard Pedersen (DEN) put together a run of three consecutive podium finishes in July and August with a second place at the Stena Match Cup Sweden Women's Trophy in Marstrand, Sweden, a third at the New York Women's Invitational and a second place at the ISAF Nations Cup Grand Final. All three were ISAF Grade I events which promotes the Dane up to world number four from world number 22.

Defeating the Dane on her home waters in Middelfart, Denmark at the ISAF Nations Cup Grand Final in an epic finale was Brazil's Juliana Senfft.

Having gone two races down the Brazilian fought back hard to claw the tie level before taking the deciding race to clinch the Nations Cup title and the full points in the ISAF Grade 1 regatta. The result maintains Senfft's spot at world number 12.

Lysekil Women's Match victor Camilla Ulrikkeholm (DEN) drops out of top spot and into world number two.

Stephanie Roble's (USA) Stena Match Cup victory and fourth at the New York Invitational moves her up a spot to world number six, a personal best.

Sweden's Anna Kjellberg took the New York honours to climb from world number eight to world number five, a best ranking to date for the Swede.

News - USA and the World

The Australian supermaxi Perpetual Loyal has been forced to retire from the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart Race, with hull damage. The news came in a regular radio sked with race organisers, little detail was available, however it is understood that she has some hull delamination, probably arising from pounding though big seas and 25-30kt winds for the first day and night of the race. ... [more]  

For the last 18 hours, there has been never more than three nautical miles between the new kids on the block, Jim Clark and Kristy Hinze Clark's Comanche with Ken Read skippering the boat with distinction and the Bob Oatley's Wild Oats XI. Mark Richard's who was blown away by Comanche's reaching speed inside the harbour has been hunting the race leader relentlessly as the two boats beat south. ... [more]  

Clouds outlines what he is expecting to see in the race, and says that while the big boats will take all the attention in the early stages of the race, the weather is against them as the race progresses.

A stiff southerly is testing the boats and sailors on the first afternoon of the 2014 Rolex Sydney Hobart and by late afternoon, four yachts had retired from the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s annual race.

Comanche skipper Ken Read was in fine form in this video interview. He says On the first night, will there will be too much upwind to be able to send it? It absolutey plays on my mind as the skipper this boat is untested. We’re completely cutting edge, and when it's cutting edge it’s a Formula 1 race car that blows up its engine on the first lap. ...

Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race: Brad Kellett, Brindabella’s sailing master, reported that while he was doing his regular checks this evening he discovered larger than normal quantities of water in the bottom of the boat, found to be coming from damaged rudder bearings.

After a brilliant start slightly ahead and to leeward of Wild Oats XI, Comanche swiftly unfurled her giant spinnaker and took off, quickly ‘rolling the Oats’. ... [more]  

America’s Cup winning skipper Jimmy Spithill could well be the most overqualified grinder you’ll see in action in the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s Rolex Sydney Hobart start line today.

When most would have been sitting down for Christmas lunch the Wild Oats XI team were to be seen out on Sydney Harbour testing their new - and appropriately named - gooseneck, that replaces the one that failed when out training earlier in the week.

Professor Pat Pending had the most amazing Convert-a-Car in the 60s cartoon series, the Wacky Races. It could do just about anything.
