London Business School Win the 2013 MBA Sailing League

London Business School have won the MBA Sailing League 182131_361050597296498_1517972939_n-e1344174985834for the second year in a row.  Despite their effective 16th place at the Rolex MBA’s Cup, and their main rivals INSEAD coming home in 7th equal, the INSEAD team could not overcome the handicap of not having sailed at the Cranfield regatta in July. INSEAD come second equal  for the second year in a row, with the Kellogg/WHU team their partners in second place. The top five are rounded out by Cranfield in 4th and Rotterdam in 5th, both there for the second year in succession.

INSEAD climb 2 places above Cranfield who didn’t compete in Italy.  EFPL climb 8 places to 6th, Manchester 7 places to 7th, and Tuck 6 places to 8th equal. Meanwhile Warwick, AUEB, Bath and Henley drop out of the top 10.

LBS won the league by winning at the Global MBA Trophy in Athens, Greece and the Cranfield Regatta in the Solent, UK. They came second at the ABC regatta, in Marseille, France and third at the RSM regatta in Lelystad, Netherlands. Continue reading “London Business School Win the 2013 MBA Sailing League”

Insead strike back at RSM Regatta

Insead and LBS have between them won all the regattas of the 2013 MBA sailing league so far. In Lelystad, for the RSM regatta, it was Insead’s turn to bring home the trophy. The Insead team led by Ingrid Van Wees won three of the six races completed, came second in two and third in the last one.  Second place was taken by Yannis Pagoulatos’s Rotterdam School of Management crew, who were consistent through the second day of the regatta, with three 2s and a 1, while coming 3rd in both races on day 1.  The podium was completed by LBS, who couldnt find consistency: Despite two first places and a second, their 3,4,5 on day two cost them dearly.

London Business School Stay top of the league

LBS-Sailing-LogoDespite INSEAD’s win at the ABC regatta,  London Business School’s second place keeps them at the top of the 2013 league, albeit with only 1 point seperating them from INSEAD.

The League table for 2013 only contains results from two regattas so far: the Global MBA Trophy and the Alumni Business Cup.

Kellogg/WHU, who were part of the “MBA Fastnet” team at the ABC, drop one place to third. AUEB also part of that team drop to fourth. HEC’s third place at the regatta means they come into the league in 5th place, level with Warwick, who missed the action in Marseille.
