LAKE GARDA Newsletter - Why Lake Garda is fantastic for Watersports Lovers...
April 01, 2008
April is here already...it's hard to believe, considering what awful weather we've had in the UK lately!
I'm afraid I've got some bad news: after this month, I won't be doing the newsletters anymore, in
fact I think we may be getting rid of our website altogether....
Now, back to our newsletter and topic of the month...you may remember that last month we talked about why Lake Garda is a wonderful place for families with children. Well this month our focus is on all of you watersport-mad people out there. Lake Garda is a paradise for water sports, be it waterskiing, jetskiing, kite-surfing, sailing, and of course, the extremely popular sport out there...windsurfing!
Let's go over each sport now briefly...
Windsurfing: Probably the most popular watersport to do on the lake. It's generally done on the North part of
the lake where the reliable winds are the best. It really is a windsurfer's paradise, and the towns
there, particularly Torbole, really cater for the sport, offering equipment rentals and lessons.
On our website, you can learn about all about the
different winds on the lake, what equipment you can hire there, and you can even check out a great
video on windsurfing at Lake Garda. Take a look
If you want a bit of a break from all the excellent watersports you'll be doing, then check out some of these events going on in April. You'll find many things going on throughout the year, including art exhibitions, festivals, wine and food tastings, theatre events and sports events.
If you'd like to know about any of these events in particular for this month, then please contact us. I used to try to list some of them, but there are far too many! We will, however, focus on the main events that are going on this month. Let's take a look now at the main Events for the month of April....
