The sheer size of the Cranfield regatta fleet means that teams that choose not to participate need to do incredibly well in the rest of the season to feature near the top of the league. Insead were not on the Solent in July, while Warwick, LBS and RSM were, and so they tumble from second to 4th place.
This was Rotterdam Erasmus School of Management’s first entry into the Cranfield Regatta, and their eighth place, along with their great showing in Athens means that they climb up to second overall, jumping a massive 7 places. They are ahead of Warwick because their 36 points come from just three regattas compared to Warwick’s four.
London Business School’s second place consolidates their lead in the MBA sailing league, a full 18 points ahead of Rotterdam. Warwick’s 7th place at Cranfield is an improvement of six places compared to their 2009 result and means that they also overtake Insead to stay in third place.
The teams that finished near the top of the Cranfield table make the biggest jumps in the rankings. The winners, Exeter, improved on 21st place in 2009, and are now in 5th place, up 18. Manchester’s 4th place in their first event in the MBA season places them 7th, Henly climb 9 places to 11th, while Portsmouth, Imperial, Aberdeen, Leeds and Ashridge also place in the league table for the first time.
Big losers were MIP Milano and Kellogg/WHU who both drop 5 places as crews who did Cranfield climb above them.
The league says farewell to Bradford, London Cass, Cambridge Judge and GISMA, who did not return to the Cranfield regatta this year.
