MIP’s win in the Global MBA Trophy in Greece puts them top of the 2022 MBA Global Sailing League table. It also means that they climb to the top of the 12- month rankings, pushing Kellogg/WHU down to second place.
The Global MBA Trophy returned after the Pandemic, back to its long- term home of Piraeus, Greece on the 7-10 April 2022. After a 2 year hiatus due to COVID and a 3 year gap since it was last held in Greece in 2018, normal service was resumed with Ugo Alvazzi del Frate’s MIP team winning the third regatta in a row in these waters.
After scoring their third first place of the year at the Rolex MBA’s Conference and Regatta, INSEAD stamped their authority on the league, scoring half the points of their two nearest rivals. The full league table can be found here.
