London Business School entered five teams in the MBA Winter Regatta, held at Marina Rubicon in Lanzarote on 1 & 2 February, and one of them came out on top. The Regatta was sailed in a fleet of J80 Sportsboats, crewed by 3 or 4 persons each. The “LBS Red” team, helmed by Nikolaas Van Der Loock won four out of the eight races and came second in the other four. Theirs was the youngest crew in the fleet, with two out of the four on the boat aged in their early twenties as students on LBS’s postgraduate “Masters in Management” course. Cranfield’s crew, helmed by Jeremy Renwick came second, with two first places, and the podium was rounded out by Rob Cotterill’s “LBS White” team, with one first place. The remaining race was won by “LBS Black”, helmed by Tony Ellingham. There were nine boats in all, with crews from Warwick, Rotterdam and IE as well as those from LBS and Cranfield.
The MBA Winter Regatta is not yet part of the MBA Sailing League
The racing took place with increasing winds as the days went on, meaning that the earlier races were sailed under gennekers, and the later ones with white sails only.
