The annual POLIMI regatta will take place on 18- 21 May on the waters of beautiful Lake Garda in Northern Italy. This is a mecca for sailors. The regatta has two divisions, with division A qualifying for the MBA Sailing League, and division B aimed at less experienced sailors, with a local skipper provided. The boat is the one-design Dolphin 81, with retractable bowsprit, Asymetric Spinnaker and a hull shape designed for downwind surfing. They take crews of 5 sailors.
There will be a business conference on the afternoon of the Saturday, following two days of racing. Competitors will stay at the UniVela hotel, at the sailing venue itself.
The POLIMI team, formerly MIP, maintain their lead in the 2022 MBA League with third place in their own regatta. London Business School advance to 2nd after their 1st place. Otherwise the top 5 remain the same.
In the rankings, LBS also climb to second, with Kellogg/WHU in 3rd.
