The World Championship Nacra 2019 is hosted by the AVAL-CDV in Gravedona et Uniti, Regione Lombardia in Italy. We have been here in 2018 for the European Championship Nacra. And in 2016 we also were at Lago di Como. And with right. On this Lago racing is almost always possible due to nice thermal winds. Sometimes you can experience fierce windspeed here. And sometimes there are thunderstorms. Or zero wind. Bu above all it is brilliant place to race. More important, it has a good ramp to launch your boat. And a beautiful view.

There are enough facilities to take care of you before and after racing. Also, there is a shielded terrace upon which family and friends can relax before and after the races. This is also the area where the meals and party will be. Inside the club has a bar and a cantina.

With more than enough places to stay in the surrounding area, in a 15 minute drive, you are sure to find yourself a good nights rest.

At the club you need to to pay for drinks and bites not supported by the AVAL-CDV or Nacra Racing. Make sure you cary cash. It still is king in Italy.

Important: Venue entry
There is enough space on the club and public space to support your trailer and boat. In order to support as many boats and trailers possible we have created a parking lot for boats and trailers linked to your restoration number. We will post the lay-out online at this website and via a newsletter when it is available. Parking of boat and trailer outside the designated area is not allowed.

These tabs will be live when registration for the Worlds 2019 is open.
