Yachting Rus Cup 2020

The annual Garda Trophy regatta takes place in one of the most picturesque places in Europe. The regatta is attended by both experienced yachtsmen and beginners as part of more experienced teams.

Lake Garda is known as an «incubator» of the best yachtsmen in the world and the so-called «wind factory». The wind blows here, in most cases, according to the schedule: in the morning — the northern Peler of 15-25 knots, in the evening — the southern Ora of 10-20 knots.

The Fraglia Vela Riva yacht club, which will host the regatta, hosts competitions such as the European and World Championships in the Melges 32, J / 24, J / 80 and J / 70 classes, and also organizes the largest regatta in the Optimist monoclass (1,055 yachts), which is recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.

The Yachting Rus Cup regatta format is a grand prix race in two monoclasses with direct judging on the water. The regatta will consist of short «up & down» races. Racing on monotypic yachts of J / 70 and J / 80 classes according to the Sailing League system in two groups with medal races.

And, of course, Lake Garda is a great place for rest after the races!
