Great to see over 30 RS Aeros now signed up with 7 countries represented!

This year we return again to Lago Maggiore for our 6th International RS Aero Regatta but this time to the exciting new venue of  Cannobio where Circilo Velico del Leone will host us. Again this is a combined Swiss/Italian venture being right on the border.

The location is ideal: a very picturesque little town with lots of waterfront bars, ice cream parlours and restaurants with a long beach and lido. There are lots of B&Bs, nice hotels and several campsites in a row, all on the waterfront.

Similar to previous years at Lago Maggiore there will once again be 3 days of racing from Friday 17 to Sunday 19, following a Training Clinic of 3 days from Tuesday 14 - Thursday 16 enabling  a wonderful week at the Italian great lake.
Lago Maggiore is the most westerly of the three large pre-alpine lakes of Italy. Whilst most of the Lake's length is in Italy its alpine northern tip rests in Switzerland. Beautiful mountains, fair breezes and a wonderful culture make Lago Maggiore an event not to be missed! May-July sees the best wind and weather at Lago Maggiore. The best area for racing is just off Cannobio in the ”Canalone” where we have raced before, but from Maccagno opposite. Here the lake narrows and the wind is stronger due to the funnelling effect. 

In the morning the 'Tramontana' wind descends from the north and then in the afternoon the 'Inverna' blows from the south. There is the possibility of two good racing sessions each day in both the morning breeze and then the opposite direction afternoon breeze. This allows for a nice coffee and early lunch break in between, whilst the wind thermal reverses, providing a wonderful mix of conditions and maximising our racing opportunity.

Sign up and join the fun!
