Australia hold onto their three top spots whilst there is just one change amongst the leaders in the latest release of the ISAF World Sailing Rankings on 3 October.
The Aussies stay at the top of the Laser, 470 Men and Tornado Rankings thanks to Tom SLINGSBY
, Nathan WILMOT
and Malcolm PAGE
, and Darren BUNDOCK
and Glenn ASHBY
respectively. The single change amongst the world #1 crews sees the Polish team of Mateusz KUSZNIEREWICZ
and Tomasz HOLC
move up one place to claim the top spot in the Star. Even without regular crew Dominik ZYCKI
, KUSZNIEREWICZ claimed a top ten finish at the recent ISAF Grade C1 Star Europeans to leapfrog Xavier ROHART
and Pascal RAMBEAU
(FRA) and reclaim the world #1 spot he held once before in May.
Despite Australia's three world #1 spots, it is Spain who can claim the title of top nation in this Ranking release with four teams occupying top three spots. Marina ALABAU
leads the RS:X Women Rankings, Fernando ECHAVARRI
and Anton PAZ
, and Iker MARTINEZ
and Xavi FERNANDEZ
lie second in the Tornado and 49er Rankings respectively, whilst Ivan PASTOR
stays at #3 in the RS:X Men Rankings.
It is also a very good Ranking release for Germany and Poland. The Germans, like Spain, hold four top three spots, whilst Poland hold two top spots and a second place. The Netherlands also perform well, however Great Britain drops off the pace somewhat. After being the top nation in the previous Ranking release, the Brits lose two of their top three spots and fall back to sixth nation.
