Eight teams expected for the POLIMI Capri regatta

The organisers of the Capri MBA regatta, due to take place on 26- 29 May have announced 8 teams taking part. The regatta is organised by the sailing club of the POLIMI Graduate School of Management, formally known as MIP, from the Politechnico di Milano. Participants from 3 business schools and a mixed crew will take part. POLIMI themselves are fielding 3 crews as are London Business School (LBS), making this a very Anglo – Italian affair. Instituto de Empresa (IE) will compete with one boat.

The regatta is made up of a sequence of coastal races around the beautiful and glamorous Bay of Naples: Starting in Procida and sailing to Capri; circumnavigating Capri, and returning to Procida.

Athens Global MBA Trophy Regatta to return in 2022

London Business School Alumni Sailing Club, the organisers of the Global MBA Trophy have announced the dates of the 2022 edition.

Global MBA Trophy 2021 called off

The organisers of the Global MBA Trophy regatta which was due to take place in Piraeus, Greece at the end of April 2021 have announced that it will not be taking place.

They issued the following statement:

As we all probably expected, it’s become clear that we will not be able to run the Global MBA Trophy regatta in April. The Organisers, London Business School Alumni Sailing Club and the Yacht Club of Greece called off the regatta on 10th April.

There are a number of factors to the decision:

The ongoing lockdown, curfew etc.. in Athens and Attica, for which I do not believe there is a date for it to be lifted before May.The banning of all non- essential overseas flights from the UK until at least 17 May, meaning competitors resident in the UK will be unable to travel. There are similar travel bans in place in other countries.The fact that we have only got four boats registered and paid a deposit.

We would like to attempt to run the regatta again in September (23- 26) or October(21 – 24), but need to make sure that there is a free slot in the MBA sailing calendar at that time. If not, we will be back in April 2022
