MIT Sloan are Rolex Champions!

The team from MIT Sloan beat the Bocconi boat in the final of the match racing to take home the trophy at the Rolex MBAs Regatta.

The crews had battled light winds in the end- of season finale, off the Ligurian coast, based out of Santa Margharita Ligure.

The MIT crew had come first in the Beneteau 36.7 division on Friday and Saturday, with three firsts and a second place, and they carried that form through the match racing finals on the Sunday.

Second place Bocconi, meanwhile had been lying fourth in the 36.7 fleet, only just qualifying for the match racing, but managed to beat all except the team from Cambridge Massachusetts in the one- one – one format. More >

No change in league or rankings after RSM regatta

With LBS, Insead and Kellogg coming in 3rd and joint 4th at the RSM regatta, their spots at the top of the rankings are unchanged.  As there were only 7 crews competing, Cranfield do not lose out heavily from missing the regatta, and stay third in the 2014 league. Meanwhile the top places taken by Skolkovo and LUM in Lelystad do not help much as both missed Cranfield and Bocconi last year. LUM do climb 5 places to 12=, and Skolkovo 2 places to 8=

Win at Cranfield helps LBS climb to the top of the league

LBS-Sailing-LogoLondon Business School’s first place at the Cranfield regatta helps them climb one place to the top of the 2014 MBA sailing league.  Insead, who were top after their victory at the ABC regatta and their third place in Athens drop seven places to 8th, because they did not participate in England.

Skolkovo, who kicked the 2014 season off in first place are now down to 10th.

Kellogg/WHU’s third place at Cranfield along with their placings at the ABC and the GMT mean that they take second place in the league. Cranfield’s second place in the Solent means that they are propelled to third overall.

The top 5 is made up by HEC and Henley, both of whom have competed in two regattas this year.
