Sail-World.com : ISAF Match Race Rankings - Bruni and Tunnicliffe top list

ISAF Match Race Rankings - Bruni and Tunnicliffe top list

ISAF Match Race Rankings - Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) retained her place as World number one in the Women’s Match Race Rankings whilst Francesco Bruni (ITA) moves to the top of the Open Match Race Rankings for the first time.

Bruni held second place for the last three rankings releases but after his third place finish at the Argo Gold Cup, the seventh stage of the World Match Racing Tour, he leapfrogs Ian Williams (GBR).

Meanwhile Tunnicliffe, who is an ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year award nominee, established herself at the top of the rankings following her victory at the Santa Maria Cup in Annapolis, USA.

Open Rankings
Williams leads the World Match Racing Tour overall leaderboard by six points ahead of Bruni, but the Italian knocked the Brit off the top of the Open Rankings following his victory over Phil Robertson (NZL) in the Petit Final at the Argo Gold Cup in Hamilton, Bermuda.

Williams lost at the Quarter Final stage to Robertson in Bermuda and finished seventh overall handing Bruni the World number one spot. Torvar Mirsky (AUS) claimed top honours in Bermuda and leapfrogged Williams to take number two with the British sailor settling for number three.

Laurie Jury (NZL) continues his climb up the rankings and after defeating Mads Ebler (DEN) at the ISAF Nations Cup Grand Final in Sheboygan, USA he moves to a personal best of number 13.

Chicago Match Race winner Keith Swinton (AUS) moves from number 20 to number 12 and one of the biggest climbers is Mark Lees (GBR) who jumps from number 102 to number 71 following a good run of form which included two third place finishes at the ISAF Grade 3 RYA National Match Racing Youth Championships in Great Britain and the International Youth Match Race Championship EUROSAF European Youth Championship in Italy.

Women’s Rankings
ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year nominee Tunnicliffe overcame Julie Bossard (FRA) in the Final of the Santa Maria Cup to maintain her World number one status. The American has had a fantastic year so far finishing on the podium at ten out of twelve regattas. But Claire Leroy (FRA) maintains the pressure on the American following her victory at the ISAF Nations Cup Grand Final which sees her move from number four to number two.

Sharon Ferris-Choat’s (CAN) eighth place at the ISAF Nations Cup moves her from number 98 to number 44 and China’s Ru Wang continues to impress and work her way up the rankings following her seventh place in Sheboygan. The Chinese Match Racer jumps from number 39 to number 32.

Finland’s Silja Lehtinen moved up one place to number eight in the world following her victory at the Women’s Finnish Match Racing Championships in Skifferholmen, Finland.

The next ranking release is 23 November 2011.
