Cranfield MBA Regatta 2013 results

Well, we had an excellent regatta with stunning weather all weekend. Hot and sunny every day, the only downside was the lack of wind! The Henley team did very well with an overall result of 11th place. However, the real result was that we were 5th in the MBA class behind LBS, Kellogg/WHU and two Cranfield boats. (The MBA class excludes the professional skippers)

The black dots on the results sheet indicate the professional skippers.

Preparation for the 2013 season

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.
