The Cranfield Regatta was last held in 2018. Cranfield School of Management have no plans to hold any future regattas.
The Cranfield MBA Regatta is the oldest event of its kind in Europe, bringing together MBA students from across the world in one of the most eagerly anticipated, competitively charged sporting occasions in the business school calendar. Organised by MBA students from Cranfield, the Regatta is a two-day sailing festival of Sunsail F40 yachts competing in fixed points’ races with hospitality and entertainment over the course of the weekend.
The Cranfield MBA Regatta provides an excellent networking opportunity. It allows MBA students to meet their peers from other leading business schools and put into practice the leadership and organisational skills they have developed, and for sponsors, alumni and potential recruiters to meet some of the most dynamic management students from across the globe.
Total crew per yacht must be no more than 8 and no less than 5. At least 4 members of each crew must hold, or be studying for, a Masters or higher level qualification (e.g. MBA, M.Sc., Ph.D) from a business school that holds AMBA, EQUIS or AACSB accreditation. In addition, all crew members must be able to be classified as World Sailing Group 1. The Organising Authority reserves the right to allow World Sailing Group 2 or Group 3 crew members to participate.
