[Source: ISAF] In the Open Match Race Rankings there has been plenty of movement in the top 25 following a busy few weeks of match racing. The sailors competing in the 2011 Congressional Cup have seen the most movement but Ben Ainslie (GBR) retains a strong lead.
Since the last release of the Open Rankings there has been no change in the top six with Ben Ainslie (GBR) leading Adam Minoprio (NZL) by 945 points.
Mathieu Richard (FRA), who finished third at the Congressional Cup, is #3 in the Open Rankings followed by Torvar Mirsky (AUS) and the 2011 Congressional Cup winner Ian Williams (GBR) with Sweden’s Bjorn Hansen at #6.
Eugeniy Neugodnikov (RUS) climbed five places to #9 when the last rankings were announced and he moves further up the rankings to #7 this month after an eighth place finish at the Congressional Cup.
The Russian leaps ahead of Pierre-Antoine Morvan (FRA) and Francesco Bruni (ITA).
William Tiller (NZL) has had a busy couple of months of match racing winning the ISAF Grade 3 Hardy Cup and California Dreamin Long Beach Stop and placing second at the ISAF Grade 2 Ficker Cup. As a result, the New Zealander climbs from #35 to a personal best ranking of #26.
Evan Walker (AUS) came second in the Hardy Cup and is the biggest climber moving from #84 to #43 in the Open Rankings. His best ranking so far is #33.
