1.Weather information: Spring weather conditions
Thanks to the lake Riva del Garda benefits from a Mediterranean climate. In May temperature car reach 21°/25° degrees during the day.
Wind / Racing: Northern Lake Garda is well known for being a “sailing” mecca, largely due to
the thermally generated “Ora” wind that kicks in from the south usually around 12-1pm, and
builds regularly up to a F4 and occasionally up to a F6-F7. This places an emphasis on strong
boat handling as well as speed in these conditions. Conventional theory is that “there’s more
breeze nearer the cliffs” but that only holds true some of the time and also depends on the
racing area you use. Occasionally you get thunderstorms rolling around the mountains and the
clouds and drop in temperature can prevent the “Ora” from kicking in and if the light northerly
or “Peler” is in place racing does sometimes take place in the ‘wrong direction’ which
emphasises a range of different skill sets.
2. Racing area:
Tide: 0.5 mt - 1.0 mt
Currents: not any
Depth: 250/300 mt
3. Accommodation:
There is an accommodation list on the club website, which provides extensive details of the accommodation that’s available. Typically the best options are either hotels or selfcatering
apartments. If you go for a hotel in the town, it’s nearer the club and the evening entertainment. See

5. General Information
Location: Fraglia Vela is situated in Riva Del Garda, located in Riva, which is in the North
West corner of Lake Garda in Northern Italy. The town of Riva is particularly attractive and
has a wide range of shops, bars and interesting restaurants. For non-sailing friends there’s
a lot to do on holiday including mountain biking, windsurfing hill climbing, canyoning, beach
activities (pebbly), canoeing etc. The majority of which are all available within a short walk
of the town centre. One of the features of this end of the lake (in Trentino) is that no
motorboats are allowed (other than ferries or rescue boats) which helps to keep the noise
levels down and the dreaded jet-skiers out of the picture. So if you have friends or relatives
interested in “sharing” your holiday – bring them along.
Getting There: Airports to head for are either Verona, Brescia or Bergamo, all of which can be
reached by a number of cheap airlines e.g. Ryan air or FlyBe.
The nearest Airport to Riva d/G is the Verona Catullo one, that is 60 Km far away from Riva.
On arrival at the airport of Verona the next issue is transport to / from Riva.
Options include:
Taking direct buses Verona - Riva d/G (for more info see ).
Taking the railway Verona - Rovereto. From Rovereto to Riva there is not railway service but
buses connect the two towns nearly every hour (for more info see )
Taking a taxi. For more info about taxes see the above point taxi service.
Hiring car for the week (for more info see ). If driving from the Airport
then follow the A4 east to the A22 North signposted Brennero, and exit at the Rovereto Sud
exit (toll fee payable). Follow signs to Torbole and then Riva. After the tunnel from Torbole you
will enter Riva itself, continue on the main road until you get to a roundabout, turn left here and
the sailing club
If flying to Milano, please take note that particularly the Milano Malpensa Airport is 250 Km far
away from Riva del Garda. The Milano Linate Airport is a bit nearer but is always much better
to choose flying to Verona.
For more info about Italian Airports see .
