After a 3-year gap due to the dramatic Covid episode, the ABCup was set back on track by a team of alumni from WHU and Kelloggs, gathered by Nils Kohle. A splendid 2023 edition (the 27th !!!) took place in Kiel, the famous Olympic venue praised by top level sailors. We sailed J/70s, one of the most exciting racing monohulls.
7 teams from 6 international business schools competed on top-notch J70 boats of the German Sailing Premier League (Segelbundesliga).
Great weather and wind conditions enabled 14 inshore races and 1 costal race in the Kieler Förde. Reichman University (Tel Aviv) set sails for first place, followed by Bucerius Law School (Hamburg) and the WHU team came in third.
Onshore, the crews enjoyed the nice premises of the renowned Kieler Yacht-Club.
