The ISAF Sailing World Cup is a world-class annual series for Olympic sailing. By scoring competitors across all regattas included in the season, the ISAF Sailing World Cup offers a definitive guide to the best-of-the-best in the Olympic sailing world.

The ISAF Sailing World Cup Standings has seen some significant movement in many of the Olympic Sailing events and Paralympic Classes after the Semaine Olympique Française in Hyères, France.

After their victory in the Men’s 470 in Hyères, Pierre Leboucher and Vincent Garos (FRA) lead the Standings on 56 points. The French duo came fourth at US Sailing’s Rolex Miami OCR, followed up with a second place at the Trofeo S.A.R Princess Sofia MAPFRE in Palma, Spain before picking up their first regatta victory in Hyères.

Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page (AUS) took an early lead in the Men’s 470 Standings after they won Sail Melbourne and came second at the Rolex Miami OCR. But after a seventh place finish in Palma and coming sixth in Hyères, the Australian duo have slipped to second on 54 points. Stuart Mcnay and Graham Biehl (USA) came 14th in Hyères and are currently in third place on 41 points.

In the Women’s 470 Penny Clark and Katrina Hughes (GBR) have an eight point lead over Giulia Conti and Giovanna Micol (ITA). Clark and Hughes are yet to pick up a regatta victory but the British pair have been consistent placing in the top four three times to give them 54 points. Conti and Micol are yet to show some of their form from last year’s ISAF Sailing World Cup which saw them record two regatta wins. Their best finish this year has been their fourth place finish in Hyères giving them 46 points. Meanwhile Camille Lecointre and Mathilde Geron (FRA) sit in third on 41 points.

ISAF Sailing World Cup Laser Standings leader, Nick Thompson (GBR), had a disappointing regatta in Hyères finishing in 21st place. This allowed Tom Slingsby (AUS), who finished third in Hyères, to draw level with Thompson on 55 points. And with Javier Hernandez, Hyères victor, on 51 points in third, and Paul Goodison (GBR) in fourth on 49 points, the competition for the gold medal is tight ahead of the Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik, Holland.

Sara Winther (NZL) continued her fine form in the Laser Radial, backing her regatta victory up in Palma with another win in Hyères. She leads the Standings on 56 points, Evi Van Acker (BEL) is second on 50 points and Marit Bouwmeester (NED) is third on 49 points.

Ben Ainslie (GBR) dominated the Finn class in Hyères, sealing the gold medal ahead of the final day. He leads the ISAF Sailing World Cup Finn Standings with three race victories on 60 points after discarding his second place finish at the Rolex Miami OCR. Compatriot Giles Scott is second on 57 points and Zach Railey, who finished second to Ainslie in Hyères in third on 50 points.

In the Men’s RS:X, Shahar Zubari (ISR), on 43 points, has taken the lead in the Standings after finishing third in Hyères. He leapfrogs Dorian Van Rijsselberge (NED) who did not sail in France but after regatta victories in Miami and Palma he remains in contention in second place on 40 points. Nimrod Mashich (ISR) is third on 38 points.
Charline Picon (FRA) tops the ISAF Sailing World Cup Women’s RS:X Standings on 55 points after she came second in Hyères. Behind her is Laura Linares (ITA) on 49 points and Blanca Manchon, ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year, is third on 48 points after she defeated Picon by 11 points in Hyères to take the gold medal.

Robert Scheidt and Bruno Prada, on 53 points, extended their lead at the top of the Star Standings. The experienced Brazilians comprehensively won gold in Hyères by 33 points over Xavier Rohart and Pierre Alexis Ponsot (FRA), who are fourth in the Standings on 38 points.

Andrew Campbell and Ian Coleman (USA) have finished sixth three times in a row and are currently second on 45 points, and fellow countrymen George Szabo and Mark Strube are third on 41 points.

Pietro and Gianfranco Sibello (ITA) are the form duo in the 49er. They came second in Palma and won gold in Hyères. But having sailed one less regatta than 49er Standings leaders Nico Delle-Karth and Nikolaus Resch (AUT) they sit in third on 39 points. The Austrians lead the Standings on 47 points followed by Paul Brotherton and Mark Asquith (GBR) in second on 44 points.

In the Women’s Match Racing Sally Barkow (USA) has been on the podium in all three of the ISAF Sailing World Cup Regattas she has sailed in. She tops the Standings on 57 points, Claire Leroy (FRA) is second on 54 points and Lucy Macgregor (GBR) is third on 51 points.

In the Paralympic classes Thierry Schmitter (NED) leads the 2.4mR Standings, Bruno Jourdren (FRA) tops the Sonar Standings and Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell (GBR) lead the SKUD-18.

The ISAF Sailing World Cup now heads to Medemblik, The Netherlands for the Delta Lloyd Regatta. And with Skandia Sail for Gold and Kieler-Woche to follow soon after the ISAF Sailing World Cup is heading to a tense and tight finish.
