Eight teams expected for the POLIMI Capri regatta

The organisers of the Capri MBA regatta, due to take place on 26- 29 May have announced 8 teams taking part. The regatta is organised by the sailing club of the POLIMI Graduate School of Management, formally known as MIP, from the Politechnico di Milano. Participants from 3 business schools and a mixed crew will take part. POLIMI themselves are fielding 3 crews as are London Business School (LBS), making this a very Anglo – Italian affair. Instituto de Empresa (IE) will compete with one boat.

The regatta is made up of a sequence of coastal races around the beautiful and glamorous Bay of Naples: Starting in Procida and sailing to Capri; circumnavigating Capri, and returning to Procida.
