The Henley Sailing team are hoping to take part in the Rolex MBA’s Cup in Italy this coming September. The regatta is part of the MBA Sailing series and is being held in Santa Margharita Ligure this year. The event takes place between 26 – 29 September 2013.
If you are a Henley alumni, current student or staff member and interested in finding out more then please contact Carl de Verteuil who is organising our attendance at this event. Carl can be contacted at email@example.com
All teams competing in the 2013 Cranfield MBA Regatta are in their final preparatory stages. There is a lot of information on the Cranfield Facebook page about the regatta and those who have competed in the past are featured prominently. This can be accessed here:

The Henley team is looking forward to the event. We have not been together for nearly a year so it will be good to catching up properly. Henley is supplying a new set of branded shirts so we should all look smart this year in our matching team colours.
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.
