ISAF Match Race Rankings

Great Britain and New Zealand remain on top in the latest release of the ISAF World Match Race Rankings. Kiwi World Champion Adam Minoprio continues his lead in the Open Rankings whilst Lucy Macgregor (GBR) holds on to her to #1 position in the Women's.
Open Rankings The top two remain unchanged in the latest release of the Open ISAF World Match Race Rankings. Adam Minoprio (NZL) completes his seventh consecutive release in the world #1 spot, followed by fellow young gun Torvar Mirsky (AUS).
Triple Olympic gold medallist and TeamOrigin skipper Ben Ainslie (GBR) remains in third position having been runner-up at Match Race France in Marseilles.
Three French sailors hold top ten positions in the rankings, Mathieu Richard, Damien Iehl and Sebastien Col. Mathieu Richard (FRA) has moved up the leaderboard from seventh to fourth after his impressive victory on home waters in Marseilles and Damien Iehl won the Vll Open de Espana in Calpe in May.
For the second time Francesco Bruni (ITA) has made big gains to move up to ninth with a third place finish at Match Race France. Peter Gilmour (AUS) has also moved into the top ten by campaigning on the ISAF World Match Race Tour.
Women's Rankings British skipper Lucy Macgregor remains at the top of the Women's ISAF World Match Race Rankings. Second and third sports remain unchanged with Claire Leroy (FRA) staying in second and Katie Spithill in third.
Three French crews hold places in the top ten teams followed by USA and Australia with two teams each. Despite a lowly sixth at the fourth regatta of the ISAF Sailing World Cup in Hyeres, Macgregor holds on to her first position with a solid performance at the Eurosaf European Match Racing Championship where she was runner-up. Claire Leroy won the sail-off for third in Hyeres but it was not enough to regain the top spot. Katie Spithill of Australia maintains her third spot with a win at the ISAF Grade 2 Olympic Garda Eurolymp regatta.
