London Business School have won the MBA Sailing League for the second year in a row. Despite their effective 16th place at the Rolex MBA’s Cup, and their main rivals INSEAD coming home in 7th equal, the INSEAD team could not overcome the handicap of not having sailed at the Cranfield regatta in July. INSEAD come second equal for the second year in a row, with the Kellogg/WHU team their partners in second place. The top five are rounded out by Cranfield in 4th and Rotterdam in 5th, both there for the second year in succession.
INSEAD climb 2 places above Cranfield who didn’t compete in Italy. EFPL climb 8 places to 6th, Manchester 7 places to 7th, and Tuck 6 places to 8th equal. Meanwhile Warwick, AUEB, Bath and Henley drop out of the top 10.
LBS won the league by winning at the Global MBA Trophy in Athens, Greece and the Cranfield Regatta in the Solent, UK. They came second at the ABC regatta, in Marseille, France and third at the RSM regatta in Lelystad, Netherlands. More >
The team from EPFL, Lausanne won their second Rolex MBA Regatta in Santa Margharita Ligure, Italy. The EPFL team now have back- to- back successes, having been the champions of the same regatta in 2012.
The team from Manchester Business School came second, and the podium was rounded out with Tuck business school; Bocconi’s crew came in fourth.
EPFL won the Beneteau 36.7 fleet, then beat Tuck in the semi- finals, finally beating Manchester in the finals of the match racing. The Jeanneau Sunfast 37 fleet was won by Tuck. Bocconi came second in the 36.7s, Manchester 2nd in the Sunfasts. More >
LBS’s 3rd place at the RSM regatta in Lelystad was enough to extend their lead over second place Kellogg/WHU to 8 points, as the Kellogg crew suffered injuries, coming in 5th at the regatta. INSEAD, winners in Lelystad, claw back one of the places they lost at Cranfield to make it up to 4th place.
Meanwhile Rotterdam’s second place at the RSM regatta means they climb three places to 7th.
At the final regatta of the season at the Rolex MBA’s Cup at Santa Margharita, LBS now need to score less than 8 points more than Kellogg/WHU, less than 18 points more than Cranfield, or 19 more than INSEAD to win the 2013 league.
