London Business School Alumni Sailing Club, the organisers of the Global MBA Trophy have announced the dates of the 2022 edition. The regatta will take place on 7 – 10 April, with racing on 8 and 9 April. The Regatta returns to the Yacht Club of Greece’s home port of Microlimano, in Piraeus, Greece. The event website is at https://globalmbatrophy.com/.
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

Skolkovo brought in their second victory of the 2019 season with the win in Capri at the Alumni Business Cup, organised by MIP.

LBS 1 round out the podium. Continue reading “Skolkovo victory in Capri”
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”
