Cranfield MBA Regatta 2017

Henley Business School's Sailing SIG is once again looking to participate in the annual Cranfield MBA Regatta on the Solent in July. The Cranfield MBA Regatta aims to bring together MBA students and alumni to work effectively as teams under pressure, harnessing the wind and waves in an enjoyable and exciting environment. It is a great opportunity to network with alumni and students from leading business schools.

We are searching for a team of alumni and current students to represent  Henley Business School; particularly for the role of skipper we need an experienced sailor, however for other roles on the team limited experience and enthusiasm is just as welcome!

The Regatta is open to MBA students and alumni from all business schools. Previous sailing experience is not required as long as you are willing to meet new people and are ready to enjoy a new adventure. The number of boats is limited to 25 and allocated on a first come first served basis.
