Our mission is to nurture the ESCP Europe community we will be proudly part of for our entire life by the mean of unconventional moments to share in a beautiful setting.

Regatta was founded in 2007 by Flavio Nappi, a Master in Management student. The first three editions took place in Capri and then the Regatta moved to Ischia. The event was also held in Punta Ala and Palermo.

For the 12th Edition, Regatta is happy to take place in its most prestigious location so far: Porto Rotondo. Since the beginning, our values has been focused on offering participants an occasion to meet, strengthen their network, have fun and why not, find jobs. Prestigious sponsors participate every year to attract the potential students.

Twelve years have gone by, now the society is carried on by 24 students scattered across the ESCP Europe campuses and sharing the same vision and desire to nurture the sense of community that the event fosters.


The core of Regatta is based on four pillars and for each of which we have some exciting new entries in this edition:

  • SPORT: you will participate to the Fleet Regatta in which 40 sailing boats are involved in the competition and the Regatta Race in which the 6 Campuses select their representatives to battle out in blue water to bring home the craved Cup to show off during the entire year until the next edition.
  • NETWORK: students, alumni and sponsor representatives join together and create moments of informal networking allowing exchange of industry dynamics and insights. We strive to create the best chances to enhance one’s network during the event. We collect information to match the interest of students and alumni with creative solutions.
  • EDUCATION: we all know you want to have fun as much as you can, but anyway we will not let you go without an added value. Sailing activities, round-tables and conferences will take place close to the Regatta Village.
  • FUN: anything that happens at Regatta is fun time, if you are not sure just take a look at our gallery. We will reveal the location for each night one week before the event.


The standard ticket will include 3 nights on the boat.

If you prefer to stay in hotel, we have a partnership with Hotel Marana (****) and we are able to offer you special prices. A shuttle service will be provided by the organization.

We strive to limit the environmental impact such a big event may lead to by activating different features:

  • we will organize a lottery with our Charity Partner – ilmareintasca (“sea in the pocket”) who is funding “Thales”. This is an ambitious initiative to sensitize and help reduce the marine environment plastic pollution. You will learn more during the check-in procedure
  • we confirmed our Green Partner – Treedom, who will absorb a sensible amount of CO2 on behalf of Regatta participants
  • we will be counting the number of plastic bottles provided to each boat and award the most sustainable crew returning the highest number of empty bottles to the Regatta Village
  • all the logo cups given out to you during aperitif and dinner will require a deposit to avoid plastic cups to fall into the sea and pollute irreversibly the marine environment


Sailing is great! Gather your crew, get on your boat and be get ready to sail. More than 40 boats will sail away in a breathtaking landscape, chasing victory. Be the first to cross the finish line! If you’ve never sailed before, no worries, no sailing skills are required but you must follow your skippers instructions.
