The Cranfield Regatta will hold its 27th edition on 13- 15 July 2018

The 2018 Cranfield Regatta will take place in the Solent, between the South coast of England and the Isle of Wight on 13th – 15th July 2018.

There will be 4 -6 races over two days

This is a vital regatta in the Sunsail MBA Global Sailing League season because of the large number of participating boats – 13 boats in 2017, and up to 36 boats in the past. If a school misses out on the regatta, they are scored one point more than the number of boats involved, which can be very hard to overcome.

The boats are the largest in the league: 42 ft Beneteau F40s, with modifications made for Sunsail, sponsors of the league, and providers of the boats and regatta organisation.  Crews are 8 – strong.

The regatta hosts two parties: one on Friday night to welcome the crews to the venue and a gala night on the Saturday.  Details of how to sign up will be posted here once they are announced.

The regatta is hosted by Cranfield School of Management’s current MBA class.
