ISAF World Sailing Rankings

The leading sailors and top nations all consolidate their positions in the latest release of the ISAF World Sailing Rankings on 15 April 2009.
Following on from the European debut of the ISAF Sailing World Cup at the Trofeo SAR Princess Sofia MAPFRE in Palma, the latest release of the ISAF World Sailing Rankings puts Spain on top of the national standings. The Spanish team put in a strong performance on their home waters, winning four ISAF Sailing World Cup medals including a gold for Blanca MANCHON in the Women's RS:X. With no changes amongst any of the top-three crews in this Ranking release, Spain maintain their position at the top of the national standings with two crews ranked at #1 and two at #2 across the nine Olympic fleet racing events.

Along with the Spanish team, Australia continues to impress and also hold four top-three positions in the World Rankings. After topping the sailing medal table at the 2008 Olympic Games, Skandia Team GBR have continued where they left off in Beijing, winning 16 medals across the three ISAF Sailing World Cup events held to date. The USA have also a very strong start to the ISAF Sailing World Cup season with 15 medals won, although 12 of those came at their home event, US SAILING's Rolex Miami OCR.

The next release of the ISAF World Sailing Rankings will be on 29 April 2009 following on the Semaine Olympique Francaise, event four of the ISAF Sailing World Cup.
