ISAF World Match Race Rankings May 2011

ISAF World Match Race Rankings for May 2011 have been released and there is no change at the top of the Open Match Race Rankings.

Lucy MacGregor (GBR) returns to the number one position of the Women's rankings.


The European match racing season is in full swing with the 2011 World Match Racing Tour kicking off in France and two ISAF Sailing World Cup regattas adding points to the women's Rankings.

Open Rankings
There is no change at the top of the Open Rankings with Ben Ainslie (GBR) staying at number 1 ahead of Adam Minoprio (NZL) at number two.

Ian Williams (GBR) returns to number three after taking victory at the VII Open de Espana in Calpe defeating Pierre-Antoine Morvan(FRA) in the final. Morvan went on Match Race France, the first event of the 2011 World Match Racing Tour in Marseille where he finished fifth and climbs two places to a career best of number six in the world.

It was an all French final in Marseille with Damien Iehl up against Bertrand Pacé. Iehl eventually took the win and subsequently climbs two places up the rankings to number nine. Pace, an ex world number one, continues his return to the rankings and climbs a further 13 places up to number 19.

Iehl’s accolades include the title 2009 ISAF Nations Cup champion and this rankings it is Laurie Jury from New Zealand who enters the Nations Cup stage, claiming victory at the Oceania Regional Final. Jury climbs four places to number 25 as a result.

Just behind Jury and new to number 32 is Mahesh Ramchandran, the new Indian National Champion after their Grade 3 event at the start of the month.

Women's Rankings
Lucy Macgregor (GBR) returns to the top of the ISAF Women’s Match Racing World Rankings today after claiming victory at the Semaine Olympique Française in Hyères. Claire Leroy (FRA) slips down to number two, her fourth at both Hyères and Palma do not add any points to her overall total.

The big gain is by Sally Barkow (USA) who moves up five places to match her lifetime best of number three. Barkow won gold at the Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia MAPFRE and silver in Hyères to add some valuable points to her total. The double ISAF Women’s Match Racing World Champion (2004 and 2005) has not been ranked in the top three since May 2006 and is clearly laying down her challenge to represent the US in 2012.

Another World Cup medal in Hyères sees Renee Groeneveld (NED) move up one place to number four while Nicky Souter (AUS) moves down three places to number five after a less than characteristic performance in Palma and Hyeres. It has been a busy time for Souter’s crew Olivia Price and Nina Curtis who last weekend qualified Australia for the ISAF Nations Cup Grand Final after wining the Oceania Regional Final. Price moves up 22 places to number 38 as skipper.

The ISAF Grade 1 Women’s Match Race Criterium in Calpe, Spain has also contributed to some shifts in the rankings with winner Anne-Claire Le Berre (FRA), also counting points from her sixth place in Palma and climbing three places to number seven. Silver medallist Tamara Echegoyen (ESP) dominated racing in Calpe but could not hold off Le Berre in the final but she climbs four to number 13.

The Chinese challenge for 2012 is in full swing with Ru Wang one of the highest climbers in this release. A silver medal from the Grade 3 Eurosaf European Championships qualification event sees her climb 55 places up to number 78.

The next release of the ISAF World Match Race Rankings will be 6 July 2011.

Student Yachting World Cup - After those days of sun and light air, the weather was upside-down with a cloudy sky threatening us of heavy shower at any time and a strong wind fluctuating from 15 knots to 25 knots! Two windward-leeward races took place today as the wind became far too heavy in the early afternoon. The 13th race began this morning: a second start occurred under black flag. ... [more]  

2014 Argo Group Gold Cup - Over the last few days there have been frantic phone calls between travel agents from competitors at the Argo Group Gold Cup, the sixth stage and the oldest event on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour.

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]  

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.

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. ...

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 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. ...

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.

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]

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).
