THE ISAF World Sailing Rankings - THE Official Rankings for Olympic Classes
Posted On:  11/02/2004 13:13:49

Maxim OBEREMKO (UKR) has returned to the top of the rankings after a three month sabbatical in second place. He overtakes Jon-Paul TOBIN (NZL), who has recently just missed out on being nominated to the New Zealand NOC for the nations spot in Athens, after a closely fought battle at the New Zealand Olympic Nomination Trials in Auckland. Another big mover in the Mistral fleet is the emergence into the top twenty of Alexander BARONJAN (GER), previously in 26 position, he has moved into 18 following an eighth place finish at the ISAF Grade 1, Rolex Miami OCR. Mistral – Windsurfer Women In the women’s fleet it’s a similar story to the men in that with the World Championship from 2002 now losing it’s year one weighting, the ranking positions have been turned around somewhat. Lee LAI SHAN (HKG) is the biggest beneficiary from this shake-up, and has now moved up from equal tenth position to third overall. This is useful for a sailor who led the rankings for much of 2002. Still leading the rankings is Lisa VIDAL (FRA), whose string of top five results keeps her almost 100 points ahead of second placed Romy KINZL from Germany. Olga MASLIVETS (UKR) is continuing the form of both male and female windsurfers as she pops into the top twenty into 16 position. A tenth place at Sail Melbourne gave her valuable points in the rankings, and she starts this Olympic year with confidence. Already two ISAF Grade 1 events have been completed this year and the results of these should have an interesting impact on ranking positions in the final build up to the Olympic Regatta. Will France maintain their position as the nation with the most sailors in the top three across all the Olympic classes? Who will be knocked off their perch? And who will climb up onto the top spot?
