Student sailors

A team of ten students from the Management Studies Group will take part for the first time in April in the Heineken Race of the Classics, along with four hundred other Dutch management studies students. They think they stand a good chance, as they are crewing the boat that won last year. The race starts on April 11 and goes in stages from Rotterdam, via Ostend in Belgium to the English harbour town of Ramsgate. The aim of the race is to foster contact between students from different universities, and the high point is the party in the Royal Temple Yacht Club in Ramsgate. The last leg of the race is to the finish in Amsterdam. / TH
