Who can join?
You can participate if you are a Student or Alumni of any of the IE schools, including IE University, or from another top business schools. Alumni and Students from other business schools can also join on a limited basis. While our audience is business school students and alumni, it’s not restricted to MBA holders. Other master’s degrees are welcome to join! The more diversity, the better!

Because we want our events to be diverse and balanced, we strive to have participants from several different nationalities and a reasonable gender balance. In our four previous editions we had a perfect 50-50 gender balance and approx 70 participants from 25+ nationalities. The IE Sailing Club reserves the right to restrict the sales at any given time if necessary, in order to balance the composition of the group.
Our boats
The sailing boats available for booking are monohauls. There is very limited availability of commercial catamarans in the region of Algarve - for this year we estimate having two catamarans for the event. On the registration, you can indicate if you would like to be upgraded to a catamaran. This will have an increased fee of 200 euros on top of the current price. The gender balance of the crews will in any case be respected.
When you book, if you already know with whom you would like to share a cabin with, please mention it in the comments section. If not, whenever you wish to communicate a preference, please do so by writing us to our email
You can also tell us about your preferences, e.g., I would like to be in the same boat with X or Z. We try to follow the preferences as much as possible but please note that our aim is to mix the participants, therefore there will be no such thing as a boat were everyone already knows each others previously to the trip. 
We announce the final composition of the crews approximately four weeks ahead of the event, along with a group chat on whatsapp to coordinate final details. We always try to do the "puzzle" of the crews in a way that is satisfying for everyone involved, while also keeping the diversity, gender balance, etc. 

Check this link for agenda details. Besides sailing and enjoying the sea and the sun while chilling out with good music and the best company, we are preparing several activities, such as: thematic dinner, water games, social media competition, white party, paddling, snorkeling, docking the boats together. Do you have a cool idea to add? Your suggestions are welcome! Please note that in a sailing event the agenda is always provisional, as we are subjected to last minute changes depending on, for example, weather conditions. 

Check this link to know everything that is included in the price. No other sailing event offers such value for money, safety and joy!
