Regatta ESCP Europe 3rd edition

Enjoy the networking wind of the Regatta ESCP Europe 3rd edition. For the third time, from the 13th to the 16th May 2010, Capri will be the hosting city for the annual ESCP Europe Regatta.

After the success of the previous editions, the event will gather this year more than 250 participants from over 26 countries. Crew members will include students but also Alumni of the School, who either are pursuing a rewarding career for the most prestigious companies; either started a successful business all over the world.

For the first time, managers of sponsors will join them taking advantage of this unique opportunity to live the ESCP Europe spirit. The event aims to gather the community and foster team spirit that constitute a unique strength of these young managers: a proper management of interpersonal relations and the ability to develop them are success factors in any context, in a working environment as well as in a sport competition.
The 25 sailboats will depart on the 14th May from Santa Lucia and Darsena Action ports in Naples towards Capri where they will find logistic support and hospitality by the Yacht Club Capri. The day after, the 25 crews will be engaged in the Regatta ESCP Europe, a challenging triangle course. After, 5 sailboats representing the 5 Campuses will attend the Regatta Race, a fascinating Regatta replicating the format of the traditional Regatta Oxford vs Cambridge. Moreover, during the three days, the several parties, aperitifs and meetings scheduled will be enhanced by the stunning landscape of Capri and the exclusive selected locations.

Betting on the success and prestige of the event, there are several personalities of the sailing and managerial sphere that will animate the team building session and the smart social game (developed with the contribution of The Boston Consulting Group).

Organisation will be managed by the “Associazione Regatta ESCP Europe”, an international team of students lead by Flavio Nappi, an expert sailor from Naples which created this event during his first year of his Masters in Management in Turin. The event is supported by the Director of ESCP Turin campus, Roberto Quaglia. The contribution of sponsors as Kappa, Banca Patrimoni (Sella & C.), The Boston Consulting Group, Ferrero, Gancia, Jaguar, K-Way (which representatives will be hosted in luxury 95-feet floating SPA offered by Imperial Yachts), will ensure the success of this innovative networking and team building event.
