First ever ISAF Sailing World Rankings including Kiteboarding

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

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.

Men’s Kiteboarding

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.

New Registration System for Course Racing Boards and Kites available

Written by Editor on . Posted in News

The new registration system for boards and kites is available with immediate effect.

This new system has been developed together with ISAF to reflect the necessary changes to ensure a stable price environment and world wide availability, adressing all issues brought forward against the box rule ending up in an "arms race". With this new system, the current building technology is retained, while development can still go on within the normal product life cycles. No single manufacturer or national can gain an advantage by investing in expensive development, as all development and new equipment must be made available for everyone.

Builders interested in registering new equipment are advised to contact the IKA office.
