ISAF Match Race Rankings


Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) has moved to the top of the Women's Match Race Rankings for the first time whilst Ian Williams (GBR) maintained top spot in the Open Match Race Rankings.
The American broke into the top ten in the Women's Rankings in December 2009 and has steadily worked her way up to take top spot.
Meanwhile in the Open Rankings another good performance by Williams at the sixth stop of the World Match Race Tour in St. Moritz, Switzerland strengthened his position as World #1.


Open Rankings
Ian Williams (GBR) regained the World #1 spot in August 2011 after last holding it in June 2008, and the Brit posted a third place finish in the World Match Race Tours sixth stop in Switzerland to solidify top spot whilst Francesco Bruni (ITA) remains #2 after coming seventh in St. Moritz.
Women's Rankings
The top ten in the Women's Rankings have shuffled around after a busy period of Women's Match Racing competitions which included three Grade 1 events in Italy, Sweden and USA. Anna Tunnicliffe won the Grade 1 Buddy Melges Challenge which was held in Sheboygan, USA, the venue of the 2011 ISAF Nations Cup which takes place from 13-18 September. The victory meant that Tunnicliffe overhauled Claire Leroy (FRA) to take the top spot for the first time since her first inclusion in the Women's Match Race Rankings in 28 March 2006.


The next release of the ISAF World Match Race Rankings will be 12 October 2011.
