The Cranfield Regatta will hold its 27th edition on 13- 15 July 2018

The 2018 Cranfield Regatta will take place in the Solent, between the South coast of England and the Isle of Wight on 13th – 15th July 2018.

There will be 4 -6 races over two days

This is a vital regatta in the Sunsail MBA Global Sailing League season because of the large number of participating boats – 13 boats in 2017, and up to 36 boats in the past. If a school misses out on the regatta, they are scored 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.

INSEAD stake their claim to the 2017 title with Cranfield Regatta Win

INSEAD won their second regatta of the year at the Cranfield Regatta on the Solent, off the South coast of England. Once again, a regatta was dominated by a single team, as Kit Glover’s crew won five of the six races.

The Sunsail MBA Global Sailing League’s fourth regatta was the biggest to date with 13 teams lining up on the start line, with a strong contingent from the host school, Cranfield, with six boats.

One of the Cranfield crews came in second, while ABC winners Skolkovo could only manage third. Continue reading “INSEAD stake their claim to the 2017 title with Cranfield Regatta Win”

Home Team win the Cranfield Regatta

2 (271)Cranfield Business School won the 2015 edition of the Cranfield Regatta, winning three races out of the five. This season’s leading team, Skolkovo could only manage second place, winning the two other races. INSEAD came in third, while 2014 winners, LBS came in 4th.

The Cranfield team was led by a professional skipper and first mate, provided by the charter company.

The Cranfield regatta marks the mid point of the Sunsail MBA Global Sailing League, and is sailed on the waters of the Solent, between the Isle of Wight and the Mainland on the South Coast of England. The waters are famous for their tricky tidal currents, and frequent traffic – whether it be other racing yachts or massive cargo ships.

The Sunsail MBA Global Sailing League’s sponsor, Sunsail, provided the boats, the race committee and a lot of the organisation. The boats are Sunsail’s matched fleet of Beneteau F40s, which provide a different challenge to the smaller boats seen in most of the series’s regattas: Crews of 8, 42 ft boats and large symetrical spinnakers with dip-pole gybing.

2 (100)London Business School retained the Cranfield Regatta trophy in fine style, winning all five races to score a perfect four points  (including discard). The rankings leaders brought their A team and their A game to the regatta, following their disappointing performance at the ABC in France.

Home team Cranfield 3  came second with three second places in the last three races, while third- in- the-rankings  Kellogg/WHU brought home third, coming second in the first two races.

Bath and Cranfield 1 filled out the top five.

The Cranfield Regatta, now in its 23rd year, is the longest – running of the MBA regattas, and  one of the best attended: 19 boats competed for the trophy this year (albeit with 8 from the home school, and one representing State Street Corp.)

the racing took place on the Solent, the stretch of water between the South coast of England and the Isle of Wight. Day one started with winds at 20 knots gusting into the high 20s, leading to poling out of the Genoa on the downwinds.  Spinnakers came out by the end of the day, and Sunday was perfect Spinnaker- flying weather.
