The 20th Cranfield MBA Regatta
The University of Bath School of Management entered two crews of students and alumni from the Bath MBA to compete in the recent 20th Cranfield MBA Regatta, which took place over the weekend of 22nd- 24th July on the Solent.
The annual Regatta, which is open to MBA students and alumni from all over Europe, is organised by MBA students from Cranfield School of Management. The Cranfield Regatta is the oldest event of its kind in Europe and is one of the most eagerly anticipated, competitively charged sporting occasions in the business school calendar.
This year, 36 crews from fifteen European business schools competed in this weekend-long sailing extravaganza of ‘fixed points’ races in a fleet of Sunsail F40 yachts. The event combined competitive racing with hospitality and entertainment over the course of the weekend.
Bath began with a glorious start, leading the Regatta for a brief period. Unfortunately that glory was short-lived, as after two full days of competitive racing, INSEAD were declared the overall winners with the Bath boats finishing in a respectable 18th and 30th place.
Bath MBA Organiser Steven Swan commented:
“The team was truly diverse, with experience levels varying from a declared ‘salty sea dog’ to others that resembled ‘new born giraffes’ as the boat reached open water.”
“The social event on the Saturday night proved to be the highlight for the Bath MBA teams who were clear leaders in this field - networking opportunities were fully embraced and personal development taken to a new level.”
