With two events in the MBA Sailing League now completed (Athens and Marseille), LBS is in first place with Insead close behind. Kellogg/WHU is third with AUEB fourth, all having competed in both regattas.
See the MBA Sailing web site for a full write up of both events.
The crew members for the Henley boat in the Cranfield MBA Regatta are now confirmed as:
- Steve Ellwood (skipper)
- Tim Lawson
- Lynn Ellwood
- Qi Zhang
- Tom Brack
- Joanna Lloyd
- Carl de Verteuil
- Robert Schroeder
We are looking forward to getting on the water together and starting to go through our paces. The team are still hoping to also race in Italy in September at the Rolex MBA’s Cup. More news soon!
Our team preparation for the 2013 MBA sailing season is underway with the crew members currently being confirmed. Our hope to take part in the Athens event did not happen due to scheduling issues but we are very firmly focused on the Cranfield regatta in July.
We are pleased to see some rule changes this year with the introduction of two classes, separating the professional skippers from the business school skippered teams. Last year we came 8th in the regatta (out of nearly 30 boats) but if you excluded the Sunsail professional skippers we came in at 3rd. We wait to see the impact of this on the MBA Sailing League.
