ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 10 October 2012

ISAF ©
The ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 10 October 2012 have been released and for the first time include Kiteboarding.

Since the previous ranking release on 19 September, ISAF has re-graded the ISAF Sailing World Cup regattas of the 2011-12 circuit to apply the new grading system. This has affected points from Delta Lloyd Regatta, Skandia Sail for Gold and Kieler Woche which have changed from 200-point regattas to 100-point regattas.

In the first men’s Kiteboarding ISAF rankings release America’s Adam Koch has taken top spot. Koch became Open European Champion when he won the Kiteboarding Course Racing European Championship in La Baule, France in preparation for the World Championship in Cagliari, Italy. The American finished second in Cagliari to sit at the top of the rankings, one point shy of a perfect record.

Italy’s Riccardo Leccese follows the American in second place having finished second in France to take the European title. Leccese narrowly missed the podium in Cagliari to sit three points off Koch in the rankings.

Back-to-back third place finishes for Julien Kerneur (FRA) sees him third in the rankings whilst 2012 World Champion John Heineken (USA) is 27th having only competed at one event.

Four time Kiteboarding World Champion Steph Bridge (GBR) has taken the inaugural top spot in the Women’s Kiteboarding rankings. The British kiteboarder won gold at the European Championship before a second place at the Kiteboarding worlds. Following Bridge is Caroline Adrien (FRA) who finished one place behind Bridge at both events. Katja Roose (NED) rounds off the top three in the rankings.

Following the re-grading Ai Kondo and Wakako Tabata (JPN) continue to hold top spot whilst Lisa Westerhof and Lobke Berkhout (NED) climb up one place to world number two and Gil Cohen and Vered Buskila (ISR) climb to a best of world number three.

Olympic silver medallist Jonas Hogh-Christensen (DEN) drops to world number two whilst Zach Railey (USA) is world number three.

The Nacra17 and 49erFX are set to be introduced into the ISAF Sailing World Cup for the first time throughout the 2012-2013 series and will appear on the rankings following each regatta.
