ALL CHANGE! ITALY TOPPLE GREAT BRITAIN FROM SSL NATIONS RANKING SUMMIT

It’s finally happened! After sitting pretty at the top of the SSL Nations Ranking, Great Britain have been knocked from their perch. There have been some big moves over the past month in the SSL Global Skipper and SSL Global Crew rankings, and these changes are reflected in the SSL Nations Ranking with none of the top ten teams remaining in the same position.

The headline change is of course Italy, who have jumped from 5th to 1st, thanks to the performance of their top-ranked Nacra 17 team of skipper Ruggero Tita (SSL #5) and crew Caterina Marianna Banti (SSL #8) as well as their fellow Nacra 17 team of skipper Gianluigi Ugolini (SSL #12) who has moved up 5 places in this week’s SSL Global Skipper ranking, thanks to his win at the Paris 2024 Olympic Test event with crew Maria Giubilei (SSL #16).

Other contributors to the Italian rise are Star class legend Diego Negri (SSL #28) who has moved up 4 places, Alex Demurtas (SSL #29) who has risen an incredible 19 places thanks to his podium finish at the 29er World Championship held in Weymouth, UK, Francesco Zampacavallo (SSL #69), who has won the Vaurien World Championship held in Le Havre, France, moving 6 places up the ranking, and TP52, Melges 32, Melges 24 and Melges 20 crew Federico Michetti (SSL #10), who collected maximum points at 52 Super Series Barcelona Sailing Week to move up two places into the top ten in the SSL Global Crew Ranking.

Great Britain and the USA have both moved down a place to 2nd and 3rd respectively, while Denmark have move up 4 places to 4th, resulting in France moving down 2 places to 5th, and The Netherlands dropping out of the top five to 6th.

The SSL Nations Ranking is calculated by adding the top five ranked Skippers and top two ranked Crew from each Nation in the SSL Global Ranking, to give a points total. The lower the total, the higher your Nation is ranked.
