Europa Surf and Sail Sailing school and watersports centre
We are based at the purpose built Malcesine sailing centre, the Fraglia Vela Malcesine (FVM), which means a fully operational sailing centre with facilities for sailors and non-sailors as well as being perfectly placed for walking, cycling or taking a bus to explore the lakeside. We have boards and rigs, dinghies and catamarans to suit all sizes, ages, weights and abilities. The location is perfect for your first venture onto a board or boat, for perfecting your skills or for just having a blast. We can offer formal courses from beginner to expert, wind conditions permitting, over a period of days or weeks.
