SAILING RACE IN NEW YORK, JUNE 2018
AAGEF (French Grandes Ecoles Alumni Association in the U.S.) organized its First Sailing Regatta in New York harbor on Sunday afternoon, 10 June 2018.
10 boats, each representing a French Grande Ecole, raced for 2 hours around downtown Manhattan and the race was followed by a networking cocktail – another popular tradition among Business & Engineering Schools. There were four open spots in each of the 26 ft long sailboat. I sailed with Karen, Jean Marc, and Mathieu for Edhec Business School. Sailing has been popular and is a tradition amongst many EDHEC students and alumni. Our Team’s 1st place was a very proud moment for our Alumni Community.
