Taylor Canfield (ISV) has moved into the top ten for the first time following his victory at the Argo Gold Cup, the penultimate event on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour, in Hamilton, Bermuda.
Canfield blew Johnie Berntsson (SWE) out of the water in the final to take the honours in a convincing 3-0 win. It was his first victory on the tour having competed at four events prior since 2010.
World #1 Williams finished third in Bermuda to further strengthen his grip on the spot he has held since the turn of the year.
Pierre Antoine-Morvan (FRA) remains World #4 despite taking gold at the ISAF Grade 2 EUROSAF European Open Match Race Championship.
World Match Racing University Champion Sam Gilmour (AUS) is one of the month's biggest climbers as he climbs up to World #168 from World #370. Runner up to Gilmour in Nice, France, Jay Griffin (AUS) made the most significant climb in the top 100 as he progresses up to World #40 having previously been World #88. Griffin was also runner up at the Australian Match Racing Championship in Sandringham, Australia which has helped his progress.
Another big climber this month includes Nathan Hollerbach (USA) who has enjoyed a successful run of form at the Chicago Match Race Center over the summer months with three podium finishes to his name. Hollerbach climbs from World #408 to #158.

Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) continues to hold a firm grip on the World #1 spot in the Women's Match Racing Rankings having been dominant over the past 12 months.
With many of those behind her competing at the Busan Cup Women's International Match Race in Korea, the American still holds a handsome advantage at the top of the pile.
Claire Leroy (FRA), current World #2, took the title at the ISAF Grade 2 regatta in Busan but is still a considerable distance off of Tunnicliffe. Runner up, Ekaterina Skudina (RUS), retains her World #7 spot whilst there is no movement for London 2012 Olympic Champion and bronze medallist in Busan Tamara Echegoyen (ESP) who stays World #8.
World Match Racing University champion Renata Decnop (BRA) climbs two places to a personal best of World #15 after her victory in Nice, France. The Brazilian overcame compatriot Juliana Senfft 2-1 in the final to take her fifth title in 12 months.
