London Business School have won the MBA Sailing League for the second year in a row. Despite their effective 16th place at the Rolex MBA’s Cup, and their main rivals INSEAD coming home in 7th equal, the INSEAD team could not overcome the handicap of not having sailed at the Cranfield regatta in July. INSEAD come second equal for the second year in a row, with the Kellogg/WHU team their partners in second place. The top five are rounded out by Cranfield in 4th and Rotterdam in 5th, both there for the second year in succession.
INSEAD climb 2 places above Cranfield who didn’t compete in Italy. EFPL climb 8 places to 6th, Manchester 7 places to 7th, and Tuck 6 places to 8th equal. Meanwhile Warwick, AUEB, Bath and Henley drop out of the top 10.
LBS won the league by winning at the Global MBA Trophy in Athens, Greece and the Cranfield Regatta in the Solent, UK. They came second at the ABC regatta, in Marseille, France and third at the RSM regatta in Lelystad, Netherlands.
Insead won at the ABC regatta and the RSM regatta, and came third at the GMT. However their no- show at Cranfield made it virtually impossible for them to challenge in 2013.
Kellogg/WHU came home with second place in both Athens and the Solent, with a 5th in Lelystad and a 6th in Marseille.
Missing from the top 5 for the first time this year were Bocconi, who only sailed at their own regatta in Sta Margharita. Cranfield also only sailed in their own regatta.
Meanwhile, Rotterdam reaped the benefits of, like LBS, sailing in all five regattas this year.
