London Business School’s 3rd place in the Cranfield Regatta, along with their first place at the ABC and 5th in Athens means that they lead the 2012 MBA sailing league with two events still to come. Insead drop from joint first to second, with their sixth place at Cranfield.
The 2012 league is made up of five events: the Global MBA Trophy, The ABC, The Cranfield Regatta, the RSM Regatta and the Rolex MBA’s Cup.

Insead’s 6th place at the Cranfield Regatta was enough for them to hold onto the number 1 position in the MBA sailing rankings. They are three points ahead of London Business School, whose 3rd place on the Solent brings them above Bocconi into second. Warwick and Leeds round out the top five, climbing as MIP Milano and Manchester drop out.
The MBA Sailing Rankings are based on the past rolling 12 months of MBA sailing, so are currently made up of the 2011 Rolex MBA’s cup, the 2012 Global MBA Trophy, 2012 ABC and 2012 Cranfield regatta.
London Business School’s win at the ABC, combined with their 5th place in Athens means they are level on points with 2011 MBA Sailing League champions Insead after two events.
IMD’s second place in LA Trinite Sur Mer brings them into third place in the standings, three points behind the joint leaders. Fourth and fifth place go to ABC 5th & 6th place HEC and WU.
Meanwhile, Bocconi’s 13th place at the ABC means they fall down from the number 1 spot they occupied down to joint 9th, and MIP’s 11th place means they fall from 2nd to equal 6th.

Insead’s third place at the ABC regatta means they stay top of the MBA sailing rankings, while Bocconi’s 13th place was just enough to keep them in second place – one point ahead of LBS in 3rd. The only change in the top 5 is a return for Warwick, as they scored a 10th place in LA Trinite, having not participated in 2011. They replace MIP Milano, who were 7th in Venice last year, but could only manage 11th in France, so drop to 7th in the rankings. More >
London Business School won the Alumni Business Cup for the the third time in succession on this 20th edition of the regatta. The regatta, sailed from the 7th to the 9th June 2012, returned to La Trinite Sur Mer, in Brittany, where it had been staged from 1993 to 1996. The Brittany weather, unfortunately, also returned, making for a wet and windy week: Racing was abandoned on the Thursday because of strong wind warnings.
