Eleven teams, each sailing 24ft J80 keelboats will take to the water on that Thursday.  Racing continues for three days on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

INSEAD have made this regatta their own since 2013, winning the last two events.  Will the reigning champions, led by Maarten De Vries be a match for the 2015 on- form team – Skolkovo – who come fresh from winning the Global MBA Trophy?  INSEAD are fielding three teams, the second of which is led by Marc Le Borgne who sails J80s regularly and knows the local waters, and so should do well. 2014’s second place team, HEC is fielding three teams, while current MBA league champions, LBS are fielding two and a joint team with Manchester Business School. Rotterdam School of Management will also hope to be in the mix.

The full list of participating teams is:

A Division:

  • LBS Blue

  • HEC 1
  • HEC 2
  • HEC 3
