The Ocean Week, who have been organising MBA sailing weeks for the last several years are branching out to hosting an MBA regatta this Spring.
The regatta, to be held in Lisbon on the 12th to the 14th May features 2 days of sailing, 3 nights in the 3* hotel, and an awards dinner. The boats are the exciting Grand Surprise 30s, which were used for several years for the ABC regatta, including the one in nearby Cascais. They are one- design 30ft 6- person symmetric spinnaker boats.
The exact format for the racing has yet to be decided. The event is a pilot, with a view to forming a part of the MBA Sailing League in 2024.

As there was only one MBA Sailing League regatta in 2021 – RSM’s regatta in Porto, Portugal, the top placing business school team at that regatta become the league champions. Step forward the crew from Kellogg/WHU!
The mixed team (including one crew member from INSEAD, and one from Oxford) came top of the points table at the RSM regatta in Porto, Portugal last weekend. They had a dominant first day, with 3 first places, and managed to hold onto first place with 2 second places on day 2.
The podium was made up of Kellogg/WHU, who found their mojo on day two, finishing the regatta with three bullets to end up second, and RSM who scored consistently to finish third, level on points.
Chicago Booth complete the list of competitors, with Skolkovo scored DNC in all races, after having to pull out due to international travel issues.
The RSM Regatta, which was due to take place on 2- 5 July 2020 was cancelled despite the efforts of the organisers. Not enough crews could make the original dates or the proposed new dates in August for the event to go ahead. Quarantine restrictions on travellers returning from Portugal meant that many teams were unable to participate.
The regatta had introduced special rules to deal with the Coronavirus, requiring all participants to have undergone a Covid 19 test in the 72 hours prior to the regatta and to have tested negative.
The Bocconi MBAs conference and regatta, due to take place at the end of September, will also not take place this year due to the impact of Covid 19 on gatherings in Italy, and increased travel restrictions around the world.
