The 8th-ranked Nicole Breault USA is the best North American. — The Fleetracing Ranking Lists have no previous rankings mentioned in most classes, and a World Sailing report ist missing as well. Nations rankings, presented formerly, are not available either. Therefore, we refrain from commenting on modifications right now. — Interesting to see, that the top ranks in fleetracing are occupied by 9 different nations from 4 continents: GBR, FRA, ITA, NED(2) from Europe, CHN and JPN from Asia, NZL and AUS(2) from Oceania and BRA from South America. Contrary to most Olympic sports, sailing is truly global. — The best-ranked North Americans are in the 470men Stuart McNay/David Hughes USA 5th, in the Lasers Standard Charlie Buckingham USA 12th, Chris Barnard USA 19th, in the Lasers Radial Paige Railey USA 4th, Erika Reineke USA 12th, Sarah Douglas CAN 15th, in the Finns Tom Ramshaw CAN 8th, Luke Muller USA 23rd, in the 49ersFX Stephanie Roble/Maggie Shea USA 12th and in the Nacra-17 Riley Gibbs/Anna Weis USA 14th. — All ranking lists.
