London Business School, helmed by Klaus Rasmussen, won the 2013 Global MBA Trophy on the Faliron Bay, off Microlimano,  Piraeus, Greece.

The regatta was sailed in One- design 25ft “Platu” boats, provided by the Platu Class Association of Greece. The boats are normally sailed by their owners or by professional sailors on the match- racing tour, and were challenging and great fun to sail.

The dates of the 2013 Global MBA Trophy in Athens, Greece are confirmed as the weekend of 26th – 28th April.

The dates of the 2013 Cranfield Regatta in the Solent, England, are confirmed as the weeknd of 5th-7th July.

More details of both events, as well as the full MBA Sailing 2013 calendar will be announced soon!

 

Insead stay top of the rankings

INSEAD’s   third place at the Global MBA trophy in Piraeus consolidates their position at the top of the MBA Sailing rankings as we begin the 2012 season.  Indeed, as they came 4th in 2011, it makes their score one point less than at the end of 2011.

Bocconi and LBS are lying second and third respectively with 22 and 23 points, while Manchester and Cranfield benefit from the smaller number of qualifying boats in Greece and move up to 4th and 6th respectively at the expense of MIP Milano and Warwick who drop to 5th and 7th respectively. Only the 6 boats in the “A” division at Athens could qualify for the trophy, and so only those boats competing in the A division could gain points for the league.

 

Other big movers are Wharton, Chicago and HEC/Trium who missed Athens this year and so drop 4, 10 and 7 places respectively.
