Henley merges with Reading University

On the 1st August 2008, Henley Management College merged with Reading University’s business school to form ‘Henley Business School‘ making it one of the biggest in Europe. At the BSAR regatta our boat will carry the new Henley branding.

Help us fund the bid

In order to compete successfully in the BSAR, the Henley team need to organise coaching and training, funded by sponsorship. Ocean yacht racing is a complex and challenging activity with intense levels of competition. For this reason the team need to prepare well in order to have a realistic chance of bringing the trophy home to Henley.

We urgently need to raise money via donations or sponsorship to fund our preparation. The yacht can be branded with our sponsors logo and there are great opportunities for PR around the event in September.
Additionally, companies who have an interest in Henley may wish to make a small donation to the team. Please contact us if you are able to help in any way.

The team are all experienced in yachting and boating in general. We will be adopting various roles on board during the regatta weekend, each playing to our strengths. Teamwork is key to success in yacht racing. Great communication and supporting each other will help us deliver a race winning performance, whatever the weather may throw at us!

The Henley team is:

  • Mel Petrie
  • Tim Lawson
  • Carl de Verteuil
  • Richard Wilkins
  • Bill Fawkner-Corbett
  • Rick Hanslip

Henley bids for yachting success

For the first time this year, Henley will be entering the Business Schools Alumni Regatta (BSAR). This event pitches teams of keen MBA graduate sailors against each other in two days of ultra competitive yacht racing in the Solent.

The Henley team needs your help! The basic cost of the boat will be paid for by the crew but we urgently need to fund the training and coaching. If there are Alumni members (or their companies) who are willing to help us achieve success by making a donation or sponsoring some of the training then please get in touch.

Those who are willing to contribute, please contact Amanda Proddow at Alumni Services, HMC on amanda.proddow@henleymc.ac.uk.
