The Global MBA Trophy returned after the Pandemic, back to its long- term home of Piraeus, Greece on the 7-10 April 2022. After a 2 year hiatus due to COVID and a 3 year gap since it was last held in Greece in 2018, normal service was resumed with Ugo Alvazzi del Frate’s MIP team winning the third regatta in a row in these waters.

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

With just one regatta to go, the 2019 MBA Global Sailing League is neck and neck, with INSEAD and Skolkovo tied on 17 points, and LBS just 4 points behind.

It will all come down to the Bocconi regatta, the MBA’s Cup at Porto Cervo, Sardinia this weekend.  Whoever from these three comes out on top in Italy should take home the 2019 League. Continue reading “Tight at the top of the 2019 league”

Skolkovo brought in their second victory of the 2019 season with the win in Capri at the Alumni Business Cup, organised by MIP.  It was a close- fought regatta, the Russian team winning by 4 points thanks to two  race wins and a win in the shore games, against INSEAD 2’s three race wins, but inconsistent form in races 3 and 4 cost INSEAD 2 the regatta. LBS 1 round out the podium. Continue reading “Skolkovo victory in Capri”

INSEAD win the Offshore Trophy

The Global MBA Trophy - Sunsail Regatta Fri 26 and Saturday 27th April

The Global MBA Trophy, in its 15th edition, moved to England and the Isle of Wight for an offshore version:  A 50nautical mile circumnavigation of the island.  The race took place on Friday 26th April, setting off early at 0800 to catch the best tidal currents and was raced hard through the Solent and around the South side of the island.

The front of the fleet was a battle between home team LBS, Skolkovo and INSEAD, with LBS leading up to the last mark, where they decided to not drop their spinnaker, only to see INSEAD slip inside them and away. The Paris school held off London for the last couple of miles into the finish. Continue reading “INSEAD win the Offshore Trophy”
