The ISAF World Sailing Rankings for 2 September 2013 have now been released with Finn Gold Cup Champion Jorge Zarif moving up to world number 33. Serbia's Dany Stanisic has climbed to 357 in the Laser whilst Austrians retain world number one in the Nacra 17 after the inaugural European Championship. Canadian Laser and Radial shuffle after 100-point Cork OCR in Kingston, Canada.


2013 Finn Gold Cup Champion Jorge Zarif moves up to world number 33 having taken the full 200-points at the event in Tallinn, Estonia. Zarif only counts three regattas in his point's total and alongside his Finn Gold Cup success he counts a third at ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami and a 36th at ISAF Sailing World Cup Palma.

Caleb Paine (USA) keeps his spot at world number one despite finishing 23rd at the Finn Gold Cup. Andrew Mills (GBR) held an early lead in Tallinn but slipped down to tenth which was enough to see him move up one spot to world number two.

Ed Wright (GBR) moves back into the top 25 this month after taking a silver medal in Estonia. Wright has finished on the podium at the last four Finn Gold Cups and with more performances like that he will swiftly move back up the rankings.

Josh Junior continues to impress in the Finn and after a ninth in Estonia moves from world number 27 to world number 15.
