You may know what a sailboat looks like, but do you know how it works? In this 2-hour course, get hands-on experience sailing your own boat along the blue waters of Italy’s Lake Garda.
You begin the course at the school in Malcesine, a medieval town location located on the eastern side of the lake. There you meet your friendly instructor and receive your equipment. The lesson begins on land as your instructor teaches the fundamentals of catching the wind, steering, and more. Then, you get in your neoprene and life jacket and head to the water for the real test. Classes are kept to only six people to ensure you receive tailored training from the instructor.
Families are welcome to take the course together, as there are smaller boats available for kids as young as 9 years old. After you become an expert sailor, the school’s private beach offers a relaxing space to take in the mountainous surroundings.
Lake Garda sits in the Southern Limestone Alps in northern Italy. The combination of wind and high peaks makes the area a haven for watersports enthusiasts. The excellent water conditions and incredible views create a memorable setting for learning and practicing activities of all kinds.
