The team from MIT Sloan beat the Bocconi boat in the final of the match racing to take home the trophy at the Rolex MBAs Regatta.
The crews had battled light winds in the end- of season finale, off the Ligurian coast, based out of Santa Margharita Ligure.
The MIT crew had come first in the Beneteau 36.7 division on Friday and Saturday, with three firsts and a second place, and they carried that form through the match racing finals on the Sunday.
Second place Bocconi, meanwhile had been lying fourth in the 36.7 fleet, only just qualifying for the match racing, but managed to beat all except the team from Cambridge Massachusetts in the one- one – one format.
Third place were Sauder, and fourth LBS: The MBA league leaders breaking their long- lasting run of bad results at the Rolex MBAs Regatta. They had previously won the Sunfast 37 class in the fleet racing.
In division B, the honours went to the mixed RSM/LBS crew.
