Ugo Alvazzi del Frate and his team from Polimi Graduate School of Management won a close contest at the Global MBA Trophy regatta in Piraeus, Greece on 21- 22 April. The Italian business school team won by one point over 6 races, winning the last three races to edge out newcomers Reichman business school from Israel.
The regatta was raced hard on Friday 21st, with the race committee getting 4 races away, anticipating lighter airs on the Saturday. 11 Platu 25s raced windward- leeward courses on the bay of Faliron, hosted by the Yacht club of Greece from their base in Microlimano harbour.
INSEAD’s third place at the Global MBA trophy in Piraeus consolidates their position at the top of the MBA Sailing rankings as we begin the 2012 season. Indeed, as they came 4th in 2011, it makes their score one point less than at the end of 2011.
Bocconi and LBS are lying second and third respectively with 22 and 23 points, while Manchester and Cranfield benefit from the smaller number of qualifying boats in Greece and move up to 4th and 6th respectively at the expense of MIP Milano and Warwick who drop to 5th and 7th respectively. Only the 6 boats in the “A” division at Athens could qualify for the trophy, and so only those boats competing in the A division could gain points for the league.
Other big movers are Wharton, Chicago and HEC/Trium who missed Athens this year and so drop 4, 10 and 7 places respectively.
