Skolkovo announce their presence on the MBA sailing circuit with a big win in Greece!

The team from Moscow’s Skolkovo School of Management scored a near perfect 6 points from 5 races to announce their presence on the MBA sailing circuit, leaving the rest of the pack trailing in their wake.  The Global MBA Trophy regatta, in Piraeus, Greece, saw 8 teams competing in Platu 25 Sportsboats in Division A and 3 teams compete in Bavaria 42s in Division B.

Skolkovo came first in the last four races, having come second in the first race of the regatta. Nearest challengers LBS scored three times as many points with 18, while the third place of the podium was taken up by the INSEAD/MIP/Bocconi mixed crew with 20 points.

London Business School, helmed by Klaus Rasmussen, won the 2013 Global MBA Trophy on the Faliron Bay, off Microlimano,  Piraeus, Greece.

The regatta was sailed in One- design 25ft “Platu” boats, provided by the Platu Class Association of Greece. The boats are normally sailed by their owners or by professional sailors on the match- racing tour, and were challenging and great fun to sail.

Insead stay top of the rankings

INSEAD’s   third place at the Global MBA trophy in Piraeus consolidates their position at the top of the MBA Sailing rankings as we begin the 2012 season.  Indeed, as they came 4th in 2011, it makes their score one point less than at the end of 2011.

Bocconi and LBS are lying second and third respectively with 22 and 23 points, while Manchester and Cranfield benefit from the smaller number of qualifying boats in Greece and move up to 4th and 6th respectively at the expense of MIP Milano and Warwick who drop to 5th and 7th respectively. Only the 6 boats in the “A” division at Athens could qualify for the trophy, and so only those boats competing in the A division could gain points for the league.

 

Other big movers are Wharton, Chicago and HEC/Trium who missed Athens this year and so drop 4, 10 and 7 places respectively.
