A club that connects not only all the different schools at IE but also the different generations…the incoming students, the current students and the Alumni. It also gives you an opportunity to meet diverse people from other top business schools. The sailing community welcomes you with open arms.

IE Sailing Club Takes Lanzarote!

Written on June 19, 2018 by Campus Life in Other Activities

Who says you can’t create a sailing club in Madrid?

IE Masters program started a sailing club roughly ten years ago, and has been traveling and competing ever since! Having the IE community be extremely diverse culturally and professionally enables students to learn from each other in all aspects. More so, as a competitive sailor myself and a passion for the ocean I wanted to start a sailing club for the undergraduate program.

IE sailing club became the first club to become integrated with the masters, undergraduate and alumni programs. This provides an incredible opportunity for members to meet, network and sail with almost all ages and backgrounds.

A large number of MBA schools have a sailing club and host an annual sailing event such as Bocconi hosting the Rolex Cup in Portofino, Italy, London Business school in Athens, Greece, and last but not least IE University in Lanzarote, Canary Islands. All events consist a weekend of sailing, networking and partying in the unique location! The advantage of these regattas is that members from little to lots of experience can attend, which creates more of a learning and teaching experience for everyone.

The IE Sailing Club Winter Regatta has been hosting the event for six years now and this year we had 100 people attend from 11 different schools! Participants stayed at the four-star hotel Costa Calero in the heart of the volcanic island. The weekend consisted of two days of sailing following a pool party and a tasty dinner all provided by the sailing club.

Every year all club members attend up to five events per year all over Europe! In addition, we host practice events in El Pantano San Juan with other universities in Madrid. If you’re a sailor or simply have a connection with the ocean feel free to contact me or the IE Sailing club for more information because this is a unique club that always takes on new adventures!

Rolex MBA Regatta

Written on October 10, 2017 by Campus Life in Social, Sports

In the end of September, the IE Sailing club once again gathered together IE current students and alumni from all parts of the world to join the final event of the MBA Regatta season in Europe – the Rolex MBA Conference and Regatta 2017. In the beautiful Liguria region, at the port of Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino, during three days 400 participants, from 20+ business schools, sailed, networked and enjoyed the Italian coast. That weekend was the first touch with sailing for many of the participants and as usual for MBA sailing events skilled sailors willingly shared their knowledge and experience, hence many novices fell in love with sailing forever. Sailing gathers an extraordinary crowd of people who sail, smile and party to cater for an unforgettable experience, and this regatta was no exception. It was an excellent opportunity to accomplish three things simultaneously – practice or learn about sailing; meet alumni and current students both from IE and some of the other 20 business schools and enjoy the marine lifestyle and exclusive locations of the Rolex MBA Regatta. Looking forward to seeing you in the first event of the MBA sailing season in 2018 – the IE winter regatta. (link here to post about IE regatta).
