Making this event entirely unique to other competitions, the EDHEC Sailing Cup is organized by a team of 52 EDHEC Business School students selected for a two-year internship and is the largest and among one of Europe’s most prestigious sporting events. In past years, among the 22 countries, 3,000 students and 180 crews who compete, Queensland University of Technology, University of Chicago, UCLA, MIT, Cambridge, Oxford, École Polytechnique, and London Business School were represented. “This is one of the oldest competitions in all of Europe -- in fact, the 45th EDHEC Sailing Cup is older than the Vendee Globe, the Solitaire du Figaro and the Tour de France Sailing Race,” said François Gabart, winner of the 2013 Vendée Globe, MACIF and sponsor of the 44th Sailing Cup. “The EDHEC Sailing Cup remains a pioneer in high-level competitions since the beginning in 1969 and remains an event organized by students for students.”
