National Ranking Ladder January 2018

Regatta Results Back to Homepage Racing Programme

These Ladders show positions at the end of the 2017 season for Scotland (North) and England (South).

The lists have been slimmed down so that, with a few exceptions, only people who have raced regularly in 2017, either in the Scottish T.T. Series or English Open Events are included. This means that many old favourites have now slipped off the charts but, as most of them are unlikely to continue travelling to Open Events, it was decided that they were beginning to skew the results of current competitors too much and should be removed, so that the Ladders are a realistic reflection of what is happening in 2017.

There are some promising new faces that were not on the list a few years ago. In Scotland, Craig Moffett, Duncan Greenhalgh and Stephen Thomas Bate are all rising rapidly up the charts. Also, Dik Toulson, the Sailability Scotland 2017 Chairman, has added Challenger racing to his existing skills as a canoeist. We hope to see him moving up the list in future to join the other enthusiastic newcomers.

In both lists, Graham Hall dominates the rankings because he goes to a lot of events and is a very good racer with a very good boat. Graham is also an RYA qualified Class Racing Coach so, if you want to know how he does it, he - and our other RYA Coach, Val Milward - are happy to share most of their secrets with you either face-to-face at events or by email, if you have an urgent query.

The Southern Ladder gained some new faces recently, including two competitors from Hanningfield Sailability that Ron Hollington helped to start. Ron has retired from racing but Chris Atkin and Peter lawrence have more than filled his shoes, with Peter winning the Dan Newton trophy in 2017
