It is not just the oldest and the most common outdoor activity on the Lake, numerous competitions are organized on the Lake Garda, too.
The regattas are usually part of regional championships but there are also international and world races. Sailing clubs, associations and centres are copious on the lake and they are well distributed between the provinces of Trento, Verona and Brescia.
The position and the natural conformation of the Lake Garda create a favourable environment for the practice of sailing, for which not only the right body of water but also the proper atmospheric conditions are necessary.

The two winds that guarantee the practice of this sport are named Pelér and Ora, those two currents alternate and blow in two opposite directions, so that the wind is constantly assured. For those who already master the sailing, Lake Garda represents a great place for the practice, but new learners are welcome too, as on the lake they can find optimal conditions and the right structures and schools to start this new adventure.
