30 Aug – Tenth Joint Alumni Dragon Boat Trophy

Dear Alumni,Be a part of the annual dragon boat race in Zurich this summer. The INSEAD team won last year and we hope to put together an amazing team to defend our trophy in 2015. It will be an exciting event.

Tenth Joint Alumni (SAMBA) Dragon Boat Trophy, August 30, 2015

Now in its tenth year, the annual Alumni Dragon Boat Trophy is a fun competition between top business schools. Each team has 11 people, 10 alumni plus 1 drummer. All costs associated with the race for the 11 participants (including lunch) are covered by the INSEAD Alumni Association of Switzerland. A professional instructor will provide introduction and training for all teams, so prior dragon boat experience is not required. Families, partners and friends are welcome to join and support the paddlers (at own cost). All are invited to a BBQ lunch at Grasshopper Club at noon, followed by the race.
