Windsurf

Thousands of brightly coloured and darting windsurf plough the waters of the Lake Garda

The constancy and punctuality of the winds on Lake Garda transform the northern part of the lake into a gaudy palette of colours. Thousands of brightly coloured and darting windsurf plough the waters of the lake, providing a spectacle without equals. The visitor can only immagine the emotions of  gliding on the crystalline water of Lake Garda driven by the wind which stubbornly lashes the sails.

But we are not only speaking about a sport with an end in itself: sailing permits  you to discover your own strengths and your own limits, the will and capacity to affront every situation, reinforcing faith in yourself and the desire to live.
