Warwick, with Kellogg-WHU, claims its first victory in the league

21272688_764980960351263_5940324226430673323_oA combined Warwick and Kellogg-WHU team claimed first place at the RSM regatta in Porto, Portugal. Warwick have not won a regatta until now in the history of the league and WHU’s last victory dates back to the same event in 2012.

This was the first edition of the RSM regatta in its new roaming format: future editions will take place in various locations across Europe, rather than in the Netherlands. It was sailed in First 7.5 sports boats.

The win was down to consistent racing over the seven race series. The crew scoring first and second places in six races and a third in the seventh. Meanwhile, second place Skolkovo’s three first places were marred by an OCS and a DSQ for missing a gate. MIP and Chicago were level on points with MIP coming home with third, having won a race.

The regatta was sailed in tough conditions on the first day with winds gusting to 25 kts and strengthening. Only one race was sailed.

On the second day, winds were a bit less formidable (with a substantial swell). The race committee worked hard to get as many races in as possible on the second day before the winds strengthened.

Other crews at the regatta were RSM, Cambridge, LBS and IE
