Sauder triumph in Santa Margharita
Sauder Business School from the University of British Columbia, Canada beat Columbia Business School in the match race final of the Rolex MBA’s Conference and regatta. The Sauder team had come second in their fleet, then won two rounds of match racing to lift the trophy. The Conference and Regatta, organised by SDA Bocconi Sailing club is now in its 8th year, and was held in Santa Margharita Ligure, Italy on the weekend of 22nd – 25th September 2010.
Winning the MBA’s cup takes luck and skill: Luck to choose the right boat, allocated by lottery at the start of the weekend, and skill to take advantage of having the right boat. The regatta consists of an “A” division of 19 boats, racing with spinnakers and a “B” division of of 24 boats racing without spinnakers.
The losing semi- finalists in the A division were Warwick and IESE, with Warwick coming 3rd, having won the petit- final. The B division was won by the home team, SDA Bocconi.
