Day 4 ended up being a forced rest day for the almost 200 riders coming from 29 nations for the first big, global event of the Paris 2024 Olympic sail board, organised on Lake Garda, by Univela Sailing, Societa Velica Garda Salo and the iQ Foil Class.
The thick clouds didn't allow the morning North wind to pick up, nor the Southerly breeze to fill in, the rains fell relentlessly all day on the sails and boards on the huge, and soaked, grass field by the yacht club. ......( more )

Another picture perfect morning at Univela Sailing in Campione, Lake Garda. Three formats, equally sailed until today, Course (windward-leeward) to be sailed when over 10 knots, Slalom (rounding three or four marks) preferred when below 10 knots, and a Marathon (one long distance race worth two points on the scoreboard).

Plenty of races in the books on Day two of the the iQFOiL International Games at Univela Sailing in Campione, Lake Garda, consolidating its reputation of an ideal spot for sailing.
