IE ALUMNI REACH FINALS AT DRAGON BOAT RACE IN ZURICH

Escrito el 6 septiembre 2011 por Alumni en Geographic

On Sunday, August 28th, IE Business School Alumni participated for the first time in the 6th annual Dragon Boat rowing race organized by the Swiss Association of MBA’s (SAMBA) competing against Alumni from other top Business schools such as IMD, Kellogg, Insead, Bocconi, St. Gallen, and Stanford, amongst others.

Dragon Boat Racing has ancient Chinese origins. Last Sunday Dragon Boat Racing involved teams of ten paddlers in a 9 metre boat with a drummer and helm. There is no other paddle sport in which 12 people work together to create a Team result rewarded through the efforts of the whole crew, rather than a few individual performances. That is the greatness of Dragon Boating.

During this sunny day at the Zurich Lake, over 200 Alumni, families and friends mingled, networked and enjoyed watching the 120 participants working hard at their rowing skills on ten different boats representing ten business schools.

Previous rowing experience was not required, which forced most of us to be fast learners and cooperate in ways that reminded us of our good old days as IE Business School students! After three elimination rounds, our IE Alumni Team managed to classify for the final round, reaching a well-deserved fourth place! Well done!!!

Approximately 30 IE Alumni attended this fun event coming from all corners of Switzerland (Geneva, Basel, Lausanne, Zug, etc) making this day even more special and full of new acquaintances.

A special thanks goes to the hardworking rowing team:  Marc Prager (Captain), Patrick Kramer (Drummer) and Rocio Fernandez,  Kaspar Ernits,  Ambar Rivero, Henry Kalbe, Leonardo Todaro, Tommaso Cacurio, Enrique Melero, Ricardo Novella, Roland Antonopolous, Matthias Eichholz, Helen De Haan, Astrid Wyss, Servane Claudel, all paddlers.

Last but not least, we warmly thank Franka Schaeffler and Servane Claudel for the logistics, coordination, cheering and great support and IE Alumni sponsorship!. Congratulations!!!
