“On the 22nd of September 2011, 2 teams from HEC Paris joined the annual Rolex MBA Regatta in Portofino. Inspired by the example of Marquis de Maintenon, french noble man who has sold his castle and title to become a pirate in the Caribbean, the teams were determined to add some spice to the still life of the Italian resort. Division A boat, lead by Mattias Wildeman, was fighting the curse of the boat’s name “Pisolo” (“Sleepy”), but still represented a real threat to other boats, with the best result of 3rd place in one of the races. The second boat from Division B with a fancy name “Malilu” has proved its party name, becoming the party boat of the port during the 3rd evening, staying afloat all the night, while all the other boats sank in silence and darkness.”
