The IE crew led by Caroline Klass won in style on the second day of the Halloween regatta held in Puerto Calero, Lanzarote. The host team came away with two wins a second and a third, to head the table on 4 points after a discard. It was Caroline’s first regatta as skipper of a keelboat, and she and her crew took full advantage of the light conditions.
The IE Sailing Club has announced the dates of its 2022 Regatta. Back in Lanzarote, the event will take place from Saturday 29th October to Tuesday 1st November. More details are available here and on the IE Sailing Club website.

Third place was taken by the highly fancied INSEAD/HEC/RSM mixed team, while last year’s winners, LBS1 came in 5th.
The regatta had a new format this year, with an owners’ representative on board each boat to advise the team and provide safety back- up.
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.
