Sailing and windsurfing for families, groups and schools

School group, work group, family sailing and windsurfing

Family, school group, colleagues, friends

You can bring a school group or any other group to sail the warm, clean and windy waters of Lake Garda with our excellent and well maintained equipment, safety cover and fully trained staff as part of the holiday. We can arrange accommodation and transport combined with taster courses for 2-4 hours or full RYA windsurfing and sailing courses, kayak and SUP training, equipment rental and safety cover. Fun regattas and hot lunches round things off to make a group trip to remember.

Weddings, short breaks, regattas

Whatever your need, talk to us about the ideal combination of water-based and onshore activities for visitors who are coming to the lake for any of the many good reasons and would like to experience the sporting side of a visit.

Please note: If you want us to organize adventure activities from other commercial organizations we will need advance payment to secure the venue.

Family and childrens’ adventures

Italy is the most child friendly destination that you can choose for your holiday and children of all ages are welcomed in restaurants and bars. the midday winds are ideal for children to start their sailing careers and for this purpose we have boats, windsurfers and other equipment adapted specially for children as well as sympathetic instructors who can lead them on their first steps.

family group in dinghy

The lake water is wonderfully clean with no major surface currents and is a great place for children to swim and play. The water is very thin compared to sea water and so we recommend the use of arm bands or rubber rings for those not swimming confidently.

School group or children

school group ready to sail

We have welcomed a school group of 30 for a week and a school group of 50 for a day. We can arrange accommodation and transport combined with windsurfing and sailing, kayak and SUP and bicycle excursions.

Swimming, sunbathing, walks into Malcesine, fun regattas and hot lunches round things off to make a group trip to remember, even a cable-car trip onto Monte Baldo.

School group multi-activity on bikes

The Sailing Club has hot showers and good toilet and changing facilities. Students can keep fit walking along the cycleway and most hotels and accommodation can be reached with a single road-crossing.

Malcesine is suitable for a controlled night out for older students and a regular bus service ensures that they can return easily.

School group including a teacher

Even the teachers and organisers can join in (if they wish to !)

Corporate, college and club

From one day company bonding trips and incentive programmes through to college trips, participants can have a go at windsurfing, dinghy sailing, catamaran sailing, SUP’ing and kayaking. The group can mix this with adventure activities or just relaxing. A programme of activities can be created with the lead client with local transport managed by Europa Holidays.

Bunch of friends

Many of our regular groups are clients and friends of clients where the members are different every year but the group is the same. We can tailor each years package to suit the group, which sometimes wants nothing but windsurfing and other years looks for the finest local restaurants.

Professionals and team-building

We can provide safe adrenalin rushes for adult groups who want to try a wide range of sports, or just provide the hotel bookings and let you do your own planning. Boats and windsurfers can be reserved for the group with an advance payment.

Supporting families at regattas

With the regular national and international regattas, from the Olympic classes, Europa can organize evening events or small programmes for the whole fleet or water activities for the children and spouses of the competitors. We are also able to help organize support vessels, including RIBs and spectator boats.

Weddings and Celebrations

Europa Holidays has been delighted to help organise special events over many years – weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, pre-wedding parties. We can help with as much or as little as is required: accommodation in hotels , apartments and/or camping, a choice of restaurants, bars and party venues, transfers for guests from airports and, of course, windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, swimming and SUP’ing entertainment during the daytime for all involved courtesy of our beach facilities.

Stunning locations

For weddings, both the Castle and Captain’s Palace are available for civil ceremonies and we can recommend wedding planners who are well experienced in helping us to help you through the legal niceties! There are photographers, florists and taxi companies that you can rely on to make your important day a day to remember.

Malcesine and its castle

Lake Garda is a superb place for any special event where the people involved are watersports enthusiasts or where the historic and exquisite town and castle of Malcesine can provide an unforgettable backdrop for a special party.

Got a couple of days spare?

How about a round of golf at one of the mountain top courses, a visit to the opera, a bike ride around the mountains or a climb to 2000m+ peaks above Tremosine?

Lake Garda Marathon, Fun runs, Bike races

There are many sporting events that will take place each year, from sailing regattas to mountain runs (5km, 10km, 10km + 800m) and bike races. If you find something going on here and would like accommodation and airport transfers, send us an email.

Short breaks

With the main airport only an hour away and flights every day, long weekends and week-time breaks are a real possibility. We can plan to make the best use of a short stay, whether you want a couple of days early morning blasting on a windsurfer or the chance to enter a dinghy regatta or a visit to a food or wine festival or just a chilled couple of days, email us or give us a ring to see what we can suggest and organize. Get yourself to an airport and we can do the rest.
