The Cranfield Regatta will hold its 27th edition on 13- 15 July 2018

The 2018 Cranfield Regatta will take place in the Solent, between the South coast of England and the Isle of Wight on 13th – 15th July 2018.

There will be 4 -6 races over two days

This is a vital regatta in the Sunsail MBA Global Sailing League season because of the large number of participating boats – 13 boats in 2017, and up to 36 boats in the past. If a school misses out on the regatta, they are scored one point more than the number of boats involved, which can be very hard to overcome.

The boats are the largest in the league: 42 ft Beneteau F40s, with modifications made for Sunsail, sponsors of the league, and providers of the boats and regatta organisation.  Crews are 8 – strong.

The regatta hosts two parties: one on Friday night to welcome the crews to the venue and a gala night on the Saturday.  Details of how to sign up will be posted here once they are announced.

The regatta is hosted by Cranfield School of Management’s current MBA class.

London Business School Win Cranfield Regatta

2 (100)London Business School retained the Cranfield Regatta trophy in fine style, winning all five races to score a perfect four points  (including discard). The rankings leaders brought their A team and their A game to the regatta, following their disappointing performance at the ABC in France.

Home team Cranfield 3  came second with three second places in the last three races, while third- in- the-rankings  Kellogg/WHU brought home third, coming second in the first two races.

Bath and Cranfield 1 filled out the top five.

The Cranfield Regatta, now in its 23rd year, is the longest – running of the MBA regattas, and  one of the best attended: 19 boats competed for the trophy this year (albeit with 8 from the home school, and one representing State Street Corp.)

the racing took place on the Solent, the stretch of water between the South coast of England and the Isle of Wight. Day one started with winds at 20 knots gusting into the high 20s, leading to poling out of the Genoa on the downwinds.  Spinnakers came out by the end of the day, and Sunday was perfect Spinnaker- flying weather.
