MBA sailing looks set to return in 2021, with the announcement of the Global MBA Trophy regatta in Piraeus, Greece on the 22nd- 25th April. This will be the 16th time that the regatta has taken place. It is returning to Greece after it’s 15th edition in the Solent, England, and after two attempts to stage the event in COVID- hit 2020.
There will be two racing divisions: One in Platu 25 sportsboats and one in Bavaria 46 cruisers.
