The latest rankings have been released using the new system for fleet racing
The new calculation system is based on a one year rolling system that includes a simpler format with three possible event grades: 200 pointers, 100 pointers or 50 pointers.
All ISAF Sailing World Cup regattas will be 200-pointers along with the class World Championships and the ISAF Sailing World Championships. A sailor may count a maximum of three results from the World Cup.
Regattas that have taken place since 6 November 2011 (Sail Melbourne) have been re-graded and the new calculation system applied.
Sailors will include their results from the 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships and the 2012 Class World Championship as well as three of their best finishes from the 2011-2012 ISAF Sailing World Cup.
Men’s 470: Sime Fantela / Igor Marenic (CRO)
Women’s 470: Ai Kondo / Wakako Tabata (JPN)
49er: Allan Norregaard / Peter Lang (DEN)
Laser: Tom Burton (AUS)
Laser Radial: Marit Bouwmeester (NED)
Finn: Jonas Hogh-Christensen (DEN)
The next ranking release will see the men’s and women’s kiteboarding events joining the ISAF Sailing World Rankings for the first time.
