In the final OK Dinghy World Rankings release before next week's World Championship in Largs, Scotland, current world champion Karl Purdie (NZL) retains the number one spot from former world champion Greg Wilcox (NZL).

Terry Curtis (GBR) moves up one place to third while some recent good results have boosted another former world champion Thomas Hansson-Mild (SWE) to fourth. Triple world champion Nick Craig (GBR) drops to fifth.

This release includes the Medemblik Spring Cup, which was won by Wilcox with Craig in second, the German Nationals, won by Finn star Andre Budzien (GER) with Wilcox in second, the Nordic Championship, won by Stefan Myrälf (DEN) with Wilcox in second, Kiel Week, which was won by Wilcox with Craig again in second, and Warnemünde Week won by Jorgen Svendsen (DEN) with Wilcox in second.

Only 11 out of the top 20 in the rankings will be sailing in next week's World Championship in Largs, so there are sure to be plenty of changes for the next release later this year. This is also the last release that Karl Purdie will occupy the number one spot, after skipping the defence of his title this year. In addition with so few Kiwis travelling to Scotland most will drop out of the top 20 by the time of the next release. There will be some big changes and perhaps a lot of new names moving high up the list.

Next week's World Championship will feature four former World Champions. Craig is vying for a record equalling fourth world title while Hansson-Mild and the much older Wilcox are on top form and looking for a second world title. The 1998 World Champion Roger Blasse (AUS) is also entered for the Worlds, so could make a significant gain in the rankings with a good result. With the points so close at the top, whoever does take the title, is almost certain to lead the world rankings after next week.
