The annual POLIMI regatta will take place on 18- 21 May on the waters of beautiful Lake Garda in Northern Italy. This is a mecca for sailors. The regatta has two divisions, with division A qualifying for the MBA Sailing League, and division B aimed at less experienced sailors, with a local skipper provided. The boat is the one-design Dolphin 81, with retractable bowsprit, Asymetric Spinnaker and a hull shape designed for downwind surfing. They take crews of 5 sailors.
There will be a business conference on the afternoon of the Saturday, following two days of racing. Competitors will stay at the UniVela hotel, at the sailing venue itself.
London Business School crews took first and second place at the POLIMI regatta held in Capri, Italy on 27- 29 May. The regatta was raced with cruising yachts with a number of coastal passages: From nearby Procida to Capri on Friday followed by a series of stages around Capri on Saturday. An “inshore” race – in the form of a quiz also formed part of the scoring system.
There were 8 crews at the regatta: 4 from hosts POLIMI (MIP), 3 from LBS and 1 from IE. The podium was: LBS 1, LBS 2, MIP 4.
The organisers of the Capri MBA regatta, due to take place on 26- 29 May have announced 8 teams taking part. The regatta is organised by the sailing club of the POLIMI Graduate School of Management, formally known as MIP, from the Politechnico di Milano. Participants from 3 business schools and a mixed crew will take part. POLIMI themselves are fielding 3 crews as are London Business School (LBS), making this a very Anglo – Italian affair. Instituto de Empresa (IE) will compete with one boat.
The regatta is made up of a sequence of coastal races around the beautiful and glamorous Bay of Naples: Starting in Procida and sailing to Capri; circumnavigating Capri, and returning to Procida.
