bocconi regattaTheRolex MBA conference and Regattahas confirmed the dates of the 2015 edition: 24 – “7 September.  The event will once again be held on the Ligurian coast at Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy.  This is the annual climax to the Sunsail MBA Global Sailing League, when the size of the fleet means that a leading team needs to hold its own to be sure of coming in the top places of the league. The event is hosted by SDA Bocconi Sailing Club, and Yacht Club Italiano.

Participation is by invitation only.

The A Division is split between Beneteau 36.7 and Jeanneau Sunfast 37 yachts, who race on Friday and Saturday before the top boats face off in sports boats in a match racing finale.   The B division is made up of a mixture of boats who sail without spinnakers under a handicap system.

The onshore events are lavish, with welcome drinks on the Thursday, dinner and party on Friday and the legendary gala dinner on Saturday night.
