The ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 28 July 2014 have been released. World number two pair Ida Marie Nielsen and Marie Thusgaard Olsen (DEN) applied some pressure to world number one pair Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze (BRA) after they took European gold on their home waters.

The Danes came from behind to steal final day gold and sit 67 points behind the Brazilians in the 49erFX Rankings.

Annemiek Bekkering and Annette Duetz (NED) were victors at the 100-point Sail for Gold regatta and move up to world number five from World 11.

Spain's Tamara Echegoyen and Berta Betanzos also reaped the rewards of 100-point regatta success. The pair won gold at Kieler Woche and climb up three spots to world number six.


Jonas Warrer and Anders Thomsen (DEN) hold on to world number one in the 49er after they finished fifth at the 49er European Championship but the stand out performers at the moment are Peter Burling and Blair Tuke (NZL).

The Kiwis hold a perfect score of 700 but only count four regattas and as a result sit world number four. Burling and Tuke have won four consecutive 49er regattas yet those above them count more regattas to their point's total.

There is no change in the top three with the Danes leading the way followed by John Pink and Stuart Bithell (GBR) and Julien D'ortoli and Noe Delpech (FRA).

Mat Belcher and Will Ryan (AUS) have moved back to world number one in the Men's 470 after taking gold at the Open European Championship in Athens, Greece.

The Australians had lost their world number one status when the rankings were last released as they only counted five regattas but now they count the full six and are 39 points clear at the top.

Panagiotis Mantis and Pavlos Kagialis (GRE) had the better of the Australians at the 100-point Kieler Woche regatta and leapfrog many of their rivals up to world number two.

With plenty of points available across four graded 470 regattas over the current period there are numerous changes of position throughout.
