The Europa Surf and Sail fleet was out in force for the latest social regatta on Lake Garda, run by the FV Malcesine (our municipal sailing centre and base on Lake Garda). Topaz cats, Argos, Omegas and an Uno were all visible in amongst the cabin boats and Optimists.

Great fun for all on a hot and sunny day. Charles once again rented half of the Europa fleet to local club sailors for a token fee to enable Optimist and Laser sailors to experience catamaran and two/three-person dinghy sailing. You can see Toppers, Topaz Unos, Topaz catamarans, Topaz Argos and a Topaz Omega mixed in with other boats and windsurfers.

The dinghy event was won by our friends Paola and Michele in an ISO but everyone sailed well and had a great day.

A group of engineers working on ferry propulsion systems organized a Omega regatta using our Topper Topaz Omegas. Ideal boats for less experienced dinghy sailors, they proved perfect for the mix of skills in the crews.

A group of clients who have been testing new ferry propulsion systems at our port took a day off work to enjoy dinghy sailing in our Omegas, using their test ferry as the committee boat.

The boats proved excellent for their regatta and they took their racing seriously. Our instructor Jonathan can be seen watching their starting technique while teaching in one of our Argos.
The Omegas and Argos are our main sailing school boats but are usually also available for rental. For rental details, see our dinghy rental page.
