SSL NATIONS RANKING NOVEMBER UPDATE: USA MOVE INTO THE TOP 3

A great feature of the SSL Rankings, thanks to having 113,000 athletes’ event statistics, is the ability to rank nations according to their top sailors and, once a month, the SSL Nations Ranking is released.

Great Britain maintains the top spot, with Spain in second, and the Unites States have moved up two places into third.

The SSL Nations Ranking formula is the addition of the top five ranked Skippers and top two ranked Crew from each Nation in the SSL Global Ranking, to give a points total.

While there has been no change of places in the top two of SSL Nations Ranking, both Great Britain (GBR) and Spain (ESP) are being caught by the chasing pack. GBR previously had a 21-point cushion over ESP, but this has dropped to just 18 points, and with USA’s move up the ranking, ESP’s gap to third has dropped from 32 points to 29.

Looking forward, Great Britain will continue to look nervously over their shoulder with Tokyo 2020 gold medallists Giles Scott, Hannah Mills and Dylan Fletcher-Scott (ranked 22 nd , 28 th  & 34 th  respectively) all retiring from Olympic sailing.

Spain was helped by the performance of Jordi Xammar Hernandez in the 470 World Championship, but need some of their other sailors to perform to stay in the top three. The SSL Nations Ranking is all about strength in depth.

USA were boosted by Peter Duncan’s results in the Etchells World Championship and J70 World Championship, where he finished fourth and third respectively, meaning he has moved from 30 th  in September into the top ten in the SSL Global Skipper Ranking today.

Super-crew Victor Diaz de Leon always features in the USA’s ranking and is currently ranked second in the SSL Global Crew Ranking thanks to wins this year in the Melges 24 World Championship, the J80 World Championship, and a third-placed finish in the J70 World Championship, crewing for Peter Duncan.
