Lago Maggiore International RS Aero Regatta & Swiss RS Aero Nationals 2023

Event Date : 19 May 2023 - 21 May 2023

From the international RS Aero Class:

We look forward to returning again for our 5th event at Lago Maggiore for another International RS Aero Regatta at Maccagno, a joint Italian/Swiss venture. We will again add an extra day at the wonderful Italian great lake to make the format 3 days racing from Friday to Sunday.

Lago Maggiore is the most westerly of the three large pre-alpine lakes of Italy. Whilst most of the Lake's length is in Italy its alpine northern tip rests in Switzerland. Beautiful mountains, fair breezes and a wonderful culture make Lago Maggiore an event not to be missed!

May-July sees the best wind and weather at Lago Maggiore. Maccagno hold their racing just to the north in the ”Canalone” - the area where the lake narrows, opposite Canobbio, and the wind is stronger due to the funnelling. In the morning the 'Tramontana' wind descends from the north and then in the afternoon the 'Inverna' blows from the south.

There is the possibility of two good racing sessions each day in both the morning breeze and then the opposite direction afternoon breeze. This allows for a nice coffee and early lunch break in between whilst the wind thermal reverses! This provides a wonderful mix of conditions and maximises our racing opportunity
