Following the success of the first two RS Aerocups in Barcelona in 2015 and Lake Garda in 2016 the third RS Aerocup shall return to the Italian Lakes in 2017, once again to the world renowned sailing mecca of Malcesine on Lake Garda and the exquisitely designed Fraglia Vela Malcesine Clubhouse.

Malcesine, Lake Garda
Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy, and Malcesine lies on the eastern shore towards the narrow and mountainous northern end, often compared to a fiord.
Fraglia Vela Malcesine is situated on the doorstep of paradise, racing in the thermal breezes on the infamous fresh waters of Lake Garda, underneath the dramatic mountainous backdrop.
The stylish clubhouse, space and easy launching, all serve to provide a perfectly memorable stay.
The first day shall be a coaching day starting at 11.00, to warm up and acclimatise. This is a great opportunity to develop your RS Aero skills and take away some tips to improve your RS Aero sailing! The RS Aerocup series shall then be held over 3 days.
The recommended area is Campagnola just to the south of the FVM Clubhouse. A variety of hotels and camping are available.

Then we can all be close for meeting up.
The recommended hotel is Hotel Piccolo which is the closest at just 500m south of the club and overlooking the lake, but it fills up early. CAMPING: The recommended campsite is Camping Claudia, close to the lake and just 1km from the Club.
