We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Garda regatta and training camp, where we have a complete training program ready for you. The program includes sailing, physical training and lots of fun!
International Training Camp
The Lake Garda Training Camp has a long tradition of bringing sailors from many different countries together. During the camp you will make new friends, and get lots of inputs from sailors and coaches from many different countries.
We recognize that language can be barrier for some, but based on input from sailors, we have decided that the benefit of being a big group, outbalances the disadvantage of minor and limited language problems. In order to reduce language barriers, we aim to have a diverse coach team.
