This is a vital regatta in the Sunsail MBA Global Sailing League season because of the large number of participating boats – 19 boats in 2014, and up to 36 boats in the past. If a school misses out on theregatta, they are scores one point more than the number of boats involved, which can be very hard to overcome.
The boats are the largest in the league: 42 ft Beneteau F40s, with modifications made for Sunsail, sponsors of the league, and providers of the boats and regatta organisation. Crews are 8 – strong.
The regatta hosts two parties: one on Friday night to welcome the crews to the venue and a gala night on the Saturday. Details of how to sign up will be posted here once they are announced.
The regatta is hosted by Cranfield School of Management’s current MBA class.
