After ten races, the Belarusian athlete has topped the list of competitors, far out-pacing her opponents. Tatiana Drozdovskaya finished first on six occasions, scoring 19 points.
The competition in Melbourne brought together over 200 yatchsmen and women from all over the world, including many participants of the Olympics and Paralympics, as well as some from non-Olympic yacht classes.
The regatta’s results are taken into account in releasing the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) world rankings, which were last updated on October 21st, 2013. Tatiana Drozdovskaya was named third but had previously topped the list for several months. Her successful performance in Melbourne will again secure first place for Tatiana in the ISAF world rankings.
