The mixed team (including one crew member from INSEAD, and one from Oxford) came top of the points table at the RSM regatta in Porto, Portugal last weekend. They had a dominant first day, with 3 first places, and managed to hold onto first place with 2 second places on day 2.
The podium was made up of Kellogg/WHU, who found their mojo on day two, finishing the regatta with three bullets to end up second, and RSM who scored consistently to finish third, level on points.
Chicago Booth complete the list of competitors, with Skolkovo scored DNC in all races, after having to pull out due to international travel issues.

Our first training weekend saw the team in Maxfun 35’s and J109’s training in some “fresh” conditions, as well as going through some onshore theory.
The second weekend was on a Maxfun 35 in January 2013, with “fresher” (i.e. colder) conditions providing opportunities for more training.
More details on the crew as well as past and future training to follow soon!
