Lucy MacGregor retains her number one position for Great Britain in the ISAF World Rankings but there are plenty of changes below them as the 2011 season continues.
Lucy MacGregor (GBR) stays at #1 in the Women’s Rankings but with
three ISAF Grade 1 regattas counting to this release it’s all change
through the rest of the top ten. Nicky Souter (AUS) moves up three places to
#2 ahead of Renee Groeneveld (NED) at #3. Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) moves back
up to #4 while Ekaterina Skudina (RUS) completes the top five.
Skudina’s move to a lifetime best ranking of #5 is due to her gold
medal at Kieler Woche and the silver medal at the European Championship in
Helsinki, Finland. The new European champion who defeated Skudina in the
final is Tamara Echegoyen (ESP) who moves up three places to a career best
Olivia Price (AUS), previously crew to Nicky Souter, continues her march up
the rankings to sit at #25 in this release. Only counting five regatta
scores her successes have been remarkable and rewarded by Yachting Australia
with a place at the Weymouth and Portland International Regatta.
Katarzyna Pic (POL) climbs 50 places to enters the top 50 for the first
time at #43 after a string of podium finishes at the Open Spring Cup and
Polish Open events in Zlota Gora. China’s Ru Wang gave the more
experienced teams a run for their money at the Delta Lloyd Regatta, just
missing out on a medal. She now counts six regatta scores and continues her
climb up the rankings by 32 places to sit at #45.
The next ranking release is on 3 August 2011.
