Revised Women’s Match Race Rankings released

by ISAF on 18 May 2012
. .
ISAF have issued revised Match Race Rankings for 16th May 2012 following an administrative error in the Women’s Match Race Rankings.

Women’s Rankings:

Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) retains top spot in the Women’s Rankings following her victory at the ISAF Grade 1 Semaine Olympique Francaise in Hyeres, France.

The American has dominated the rankings since 7 September 2011 and with Olympic qualification also assured she will be the one to beat at the London 2012 Olympic Sailing Competition.

As World number two Lucy Macgregor (GBR) is just 36 points behind Tunnicliffe in the rankings, a position she has held throughout 2012. But with Skandia Sail for Gold and the 2012 ISAF Women’s Match Racing Worlds coming up Macgregor will be aiming to regain the spot she lost last year.

Renee Groeneveld (NED) fell from World number 11 to World number 14, but this won’t concern the Dutch sailor after she came through a do or die Olympic Trial against Mandy Mulder at Weymouth and Portland. Groeneveld defeated Mulder 9-3 and came from two points down to storm through and take the Dutch spot at London 2012.

Australia's Olivia Price continues her march up the Women's Rankings at a rate of knots and moves up to a personal best of World number nine. The Australian has been showing good consistency in 2012 with a number of podium finishes and following a ninth place in the big Hyeres winds she breaks into the top ten for the first time.
