Dinghy rental on Lake Garda

Dinghy rental: wide range of modern dinghies, most available with gennakers and trapeze

Passports, driving licence, sailing certificates

Our dinghy rental is very simple, providing that you have some form of identification such as a passport or a driving licence (please note that in Italy it is a legal requirement for drivers to have their driving licence with them!).

We will kit you out with everything you need and prepare a suitable boat for you. Toilets, hot showers and a restaurant make for a perfect, professional experience.

If you are not familiar with dinghy capsize drill we will expect you to take a one-hour familiarization lesson with an instructor.

Calm sailing for two teenagers in a Vibe

We have a wide range of dinghies that suit up to five people. The Uno and Argos are most suited to lighter sailors or and experts using the trapeze and gennaker, while the Omega can be used for groups or adult beginners and improvers.

All of these boats are modern, stable, comfortable and well-maintained, usually new or only one or two years old. They are great for groups and for families to experience the thrills of open water sailing without the dangers of rocks, big waves or tides.

Single-handers

Rent a single-handed sailing dinghy from our sailing centre on Lake Garda

For individual fun, the Topper original is simple to sail, yet great for developing skills. It's small and not intimidating. If you fall off, you can climb back in without training. The Topper is the ISAF recognised junior dinghy and sailing in a group is great fun.

Three Toppers learning sailing together

The Topper Worlds were held here on the lake in 2015 for the third time in 7 years, which tells you how good the location must be!

For larger sailors, the Topaz Unos are ideal for one person and sail very like the International Laser but with a smaller sail, great for learning and they can be rigged with a spinnaker (if you're brave).

Europa Surf and Sail - dinghy sailing centre on Lake Garda

Dinghy rental at our fabulous sailing school and water sports center on North Lake Garda at the new Malcesine Sailing Centre, near Navene (find us here) is so easy. Come and select from our wide range of modern Topper asymmetric dinghies - single-handers, family boats and sport boats. We have Topaz Omega, Argo, Vibe, Uno and original Toppers.

If you haven't experienced dinghy sailing before, you may want to take our FUNSAIL option and have an instructor on board or even take our 6-hour ESS first steps course. We can help you quickly sail by yourself in normal conditions.

The lake is 35 miles long and 3 miles wide at our beach, so there's plenty of space to play and things to see.

If you're looking for more thrills, we have an RS800 and Topper ISOs (both are two-person dinghies). The ISO has one trapeze (for the crew) while the RS800 has two trapezes which are needed when the wind is f3+.
