As a Polish students from south-eastern part of Poland we eager to take part in EDHEC Cup, the leading student sporting event in Europe.


The project

Who are we:


We are a  group of young people passionate about sailing and after winning 2013 Polish Academic Championship in Sailing we decided it is a time for a challenge. A challenge in a various way, both sport and logistic project.


Where we heading:

We are going to take part in regatta at J/80 class because some of us now this class a little.

EDHEC2.mp4Dropbox - Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily. Never email yourself a file again!

We want to gather new experience in multinational environment of professional sailors from various Universities around the world. But still we are strongly oriented at top 10 in classification.

That is our goal and like someone said: "Shoot to the stars..., even if you miss you are still among the stars"


The EDHEC Cup:

Organised by 50 students from EDHEC Business School, located in Lille (best business school in France) and Nice, the Edhec Cup competition is the largest European sporting event for students, and the largest student sailing race.



Why fund it?

Gathering funds in Poland is not simple and require a little bit of gymnastics skills,

but nobody said it was easy to organize such adventure like participation in EDHEC Cup.


We manage to get help from our University and also from City Hall but still €4500 is a large sum.


Here is our budget:

Accommodation, registration fees: € 3,450 Transport: € 5,000 Insurance: € 400

Equipment: € 2,000

Sum € 10,850


Accommodation and yacht rental fees also registration fees are a part of a package from organizational crew. We decided to take part in Kiss kiss Bank Bank project to cover package costs.


When we start regularly taking part in regatta we now it will be our way of life. With help of our families and University we manage to won some medals, bronze and silvers but last year 2013 was special. We have won Polish Academic Championship in Sailing. That make us pride that our effort in training was appreciated and gave good fruits so to speak.
