The MINI KItesurf Tour
The ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 10 October 2012 have been released and for the first time include Kiteboarding.
Since the previous ranking release on 19 September, ISAF has re-graded the ISAF Sailing World Cup regattas of the 2011-12 circuit to apply the new grading system. This has affected points from Delta Lloyd Regatta, Skandia Sail for Gold and Kieler Woche which have changed from 200-point regattas to 100-point regattas.
In the first men’s Kiteboarding ISAF rankings release America’s Adam Koch has taken top spot. Koch became Open European Champion when he won the Kiteboarding Course Racing European Championship in La Baule, France in preparation for the World Championship in Cagliari, Italy. The American finished second in Cagliari to sit at the top of the rankings, one point shy of a perfect record.
Italy’s Riccardo Leccese follows the American in second place having finished second in France to take the European title. Leccese narrowly missed the podium in Cagliari to sit three points off Koch in the rankings.
Back-to-back third place finishes for Julien Kerneur (FRA) sees him third in the rankings whilst 2012 World Champion John Heineken (USA) is 27th having only competed at one event.
