The win was down to consistent racing over the seven race series. The crew scoring first and second places in six races and a third in the seventh.

Strong Line- Up for MBA Winter Regatta

The Crews will be lining up for the first race of the MBA racing season – the first race of the MBA Winter Regatta –  on Friday morning off Puerto Calero in Lanzarote, The Canary Islands.

Last year’s MBAWR winners, LBS will be up against a very strong mixed crew from HEC/Insead/RSM: These two are expected to be fighting for the honours.  Up against them are another crew from LBS, two from IE and one from RSM, all vying to cause an upset.  The “A” division crews will be sailing 4-5 man J80 sportsboats.

For the first time the Winter Regatta also has a “B” division, sailing in 36- 40ft boats. IE has sent a massive three boat contingent to add to their A division crews. There’s also a crew from HEC to challenge for the Div B title.

The racing takes place on Friday and Saturday, and the crews can expect a warm welcome from the Canarian weather and the local hospitality at the events on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

The weather forecast with 6 days to go is for strong Northerly winds on Friday, calming somewhat on Saturday.
