Bocconi take full advantage of home waters

SDA Bocconi sailing Club’s team, led by Federico Albano won the final match race against Cranfield to win the 2010 MBAs cup in the waters off Santa Margharita Ligure and Portofino. Match racing made its first entry into MBA sailing this regatta as a novel way of reconciling two fleets of boats for the 19 crews who took part in the “A” regatta.  The top two from each fleet progressed to the match racing stage, with Bocconi emerging champions, Cranfield from the UK second, Canadian school Sauder third and the US/German Kellogg team fourth. A further 28 boats competed in a “B” regatta, sailing without spinnakers, making a total of 47 boats sailing, and an incredibly crowded harbour!

Day one saw very little wind,  and only two boats from division A finished, In division B, only one boat made it across the line before the time limit.

Day two was better, as the committee got two races away, albeiit with a very long break in between. Race 1 was sailed in flukey winds, with the final upwind leg ending up as a downwind run! For the second race, the Mediterranean finally delivered some good winds, and great racing.

As ever the regatta will be remembered as much for its lavish parties and the incredible location as for the racing itself. This one will also be remembered for the sudden storm on Friday night, which saw several hundred crews, dressed for the post- racing drinks reception in Portofino caught out on the ferry back to Sta. Margharita.
