The ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 9 December 2013 have been released. Disappointment at the Laser World Championship turned into joy at ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne for world number one Tom Burton (AUS) who won the second of five regattas of the 2013-14 series.

Burton was optimistic heading into the Laser Worlds but for the world number one’s standards he was left disappointed with a ninth. He came into ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne with a point to prove and comprehensively took gold to remain at world number one.

Croatia's Tonci Stipanovic sits two points off of Burton at world number two followed by Bruno Fontes (BRA).

Robert Scheidt (BRA) came back with a bang at the Laser Worlds and picked up his ninth Laser World Championship title in Oman.

Scheidt's previous Laser title came in 2005 at Fortaleza, Cerea, Brazil when he was at the height of his game and he found no problems getting back into the Laser swing in Oman.

The Brazilian shifts from world number 71 to world number 44, counting five regattas in his points total. With plenty of ISAF Sailing World Cup regattas on the horizon the Brazilian will quickly progress upwards, putting pressure on the top ranked Laser sailors.


The Nacra 17 fleet are only adding points from ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne at this ranking release and there is consequently no change to the top five positions. Making a splash at their Nacra 17 debut in Melbourne were Olympic silver medallists Darren Bundock and Nina Curtis (AUS) who took home a gold medal from their first outing together. The 200 ranking points they also now own puts them at number 35 on the list. Jason Waterhouse and Lisa Darmanin, have been campaigning a little longer and are the highest ranked Australian team, their ranking improves after they claimed the bronze medal in Melbourne after a dramatic Medal Race from number 13 to number seven.


The addition of 200 ranking points is another reward for ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne gold medallist Tatiana Drozdovskaya (BLR) who moves up one place to number two in the world in the Laser Radial rankings. Mathilde de Kerangat (FRA) remains at number one but has just 15 points more than Drozdovskaya. Silver medallist in Melbourne, Dongshuang Zhang from China climbs 13 places to a career best of number four.


With a perfect 1000 points, Mat Belcher and Will Ryan (AUS) are the undisputed world leaders in the men's 470 class. Adding another regatta win at ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne it will be tough to knock them off the top of the rankings. The world number two and world number three positions are both occupied by ISAF Sailing World Cup medallists with Qingdao winners Lucas Calabrese and Juan de la Fuente (ARG) maintaining their position at number two. Moving up three places to third are Melbourne and Qingdao silver medallists Sime Fantela and Igor Marenic from Croatia.


There is no change at the top of the women's 470 rankings with Lara Vadlau and Jolanta Ogar (AUT) at number one, Fernanda Oliveira and Ana Luiza Barbachan (BRA) at number two and Sophie Weguelin and Eilidh McIntyre (GBR) number three. Newcomer to the rankings is skipper Shasha Chen from China who enters at number 38 after securing the gold medal at ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne with Yang Gao. Another new entry is ISAF Youth Worlds champion in the 420 Carrie Smith (AUS) who, sailing with former Olympic rower Sarah Cook, enters the rankings at number 65 after they finished fifth in Melbourne.


Caleb Paine (USA) and Andrew Mills (GBR) hold on to the top two positions of the Finn rankings but there is a new face at number three. ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne gold medallist Bjorn Allansson (SWE) adds 200 points to his score and climbs eleven places from number 14. Next stop Miami where the big names are set to compete Allansson will be working hard to continue to rise up the rankings. Adding a sixth place in Melbourne to his points from the 2013 Finn Gold Cup and European Championships, Joseph McMillan jumps a massive 51 places.


The top five sailors remain the same at the top of the Women's RS:X rankings with Bryony Shaw (GBR) at number one. Moving up five places to a career best position of number six is Malgorzata Bialecka from Poland who takes valuable points from her fifth place finish at ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne. Dominating the fleet in Melbourne were the Chinese athletes and gold medallist Manjia Zheng duly rockets 24 places up to number 19. Silver medallist Qiaoshan Weng is also on the move and now lies at number 10 in the world whilst bronze medallist Peina Chen climbs eleven places to number 20.


As in the women's fleet, it was all about the Chinese sailors in the men's RS:X at ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne. Gold medallist Chuankun Shi now counts the results from two events and moves up 37 places to number 30, leapfrogging teammate and silver medallist Chunzhuang Liu who now sits at number 32. The number one position still belongs to Ivan Pastor Lafuente (ESP) with Ricardo Santos (BRA) at number two and Ho Tsun Leung (HKG) at number three.

Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze (BRA) return to the number one position on the 49erFX rankings, switching places with Alexandra Maloney and Molly Meech from New Zealand. Olivia Price teamed up with Eliza Solly at ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne and stormed home in a windy Medal Race to take the gold medal, adding 200 ranking points she moves up four places to number eight.

Melbourne silver medallist Haylee Outteridge and Ella Clark also climb four places to number 10. Completing the podium were Norwegian twins Ragna and Maia Agerup and they move three places up to number 26.

Great Britain lead the 49er rankings occupying all the top three positions. After competing at his first regatta with crew Chris Grube in Melbourne, Morrison gathers enough points to climb to number one ahead of Dylan Fletcher and Alain Sign at number two and David Evans and Edward Powys at number three. Released from America's Cup duties, making an emphatic return to the 49er fleet at ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne were Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen (AUS) but with just two events counting points for them the Olympic champions are at number 42. Australian teammates David Gilmour and Sam Phillips claimed the silver in Melbourne and leap 20 places up to number 22 whilst bronze medallist Will Phillips and Rhys Mara (AUS) are at number 23.
