DF95 European Regatta 2020

Whilst the event website, clicky here, has all the latest up to date information on what is going on with the event it seems sensible to put the NoR on our TT events page as the event is part of our 2020 TT series.

NoR below.



This European event for the Dregonflite 95 is, once again, being hosted by the Vela Club Campione.

This is a charity event in support of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation. .

Because of the thermic nature of the wind on Lake Garda sailing times will be somewhat fluid, and there may be a long break for lunch whilst we wait for the afternoon (Ora) wind. However the morning (Peler) wind is usually reliable so we will aim for an early start.

The event is being managed by JOHN TUSHINGHAM (last years winner) who needs no introduction!

The racing will take place on Campione Promenade outside the local yacht club Vela Club Campione, who will be providing overnight boat storage.
