Manchester Business School scored a perfect 5 points to win the first ever MBA winter regatta, winning five of the six races.
The MBA winter regatta was held at Marina Rubicon, Playa Blanca, Lanzerote on 13- 14 January 2012. It was organised by Brendan Laing of London Business School. Teams raced six windward- leeward races in the bay off Marina Rubicon in strong winds (25 – 30 knots for most of the weekend). The boats were Sunsail’s Beneteau F40s.
Teams from Manchester, LBS (with 3 boats), RSM, IE and Bath took part.
London Business School 1 came second, having been second in five races and first in the last one.
The MBA Winter regatta does not form part of the MBA Sailing League in 2012, but the organisers hope to repeat it next year and to join the league in 2014.
