June 24-28 Eurocup, Gravedona, Lake Como, Italy 

K6 Eurocup, hosted by AVAL-CDV, Gravedona, Lake Como. 
 
Location: 
Centro vela alto Lario (AVAL-CDV) is situated in Gravedona in the North Western corner of Lake Como in Northern Italy. This exceptionally friendly club has just had a bit of a facelift, with fantastic new changing/showering facilities, an enlarged and excellent slipway and 4 x 8 bed bunk rooms on site. Socials are held outside in the balmy evening weather. 
 
Wind/Racing: 
Like Lake Garda, the Northern end of Lake Como benefits from a thermal afternoon wind. When the sun is shining (most of the time in June), a wind of around 15-18 kts kicks in in early afternoon, so racing is scheduled to start at 1300hrs daily. The race courses are within 1 mile of launching. Launching is easy, off a recently enlarged slipway into calm waters, giving you time to sort yourself out before hitting the wind. 
 
The racing will run from Monday 24 to Friday 28 June. You can arrive at the club from Friday 21 July and stay until Monday 31 June. Longer stays may be arranged with prior notification with the club. You can register at the club from Sunday 23 June. 
 
The NoR is available HERE 
 
There is space for around 8 boats to be kept in the water, so you will be asked for your preference. If more than 8 boats want to stay in, we will swap during the week. 
 
Entry: 
The entry fee is €360/boat before 1 June 2019, with a €40 late entry levy for those received from 1 June onwards. As well as the racing, this fee includes boat and trailer parking, pasta after racing each day, and a social.  
 
To enter, please send an e-mail to heather.chipperfield@gmail.com and you will be advised of information needed and how to pay. 
 
Social: 
For after sailing and for non-sailing friends there’s lots to do including mountain biking, windsurfing, hill climbing, beach (grass). Gravedona has a small ferry port, so you can visit all the major Lake Como towns without getting back in the car. The town is small with a few nice restaurants and bars. The clubhouse is small but lovely, with a tiny bar and Carla serving delicious pizza slices. We are trying to arrange a cooking masterclass and local wine tasting for non-sailors. 
 
We will book a few meals out during the week, and I would suggest those that can take the ferry to Bellagio on Saturday 29 June and have lunch at the Villa Serbelloni - https://www.villaserbelloni.com/ 
 
Accommodation/Local information: 
The club has 4 x 8-bedded bunk rooms, which are simple but very convenient and clean. Just €15/night/person. You will need to bring a towel, sheet and pillowcase. 
 
There is loads of camping within 1.5km. A lovely stroll or cycle ride along the lake side.

Tourist Information, which includes hotel information, is at http://www.visitgravedona.it/ 
 
Getting there: 
If you are coming by car, it is suggested that you access Gravedona via the Eastern side of the lake as the roads on the Western side are much smaller. If you want any advice about travelling by car to Italy, contact heather.chipperfield@gmail.com 
 
If you would like your boat delivered, Sailboatdeliveries, http://www.sailboatdeliveries.co.uk/ may be able to help, but are currently unable to confirm due to dreaded Brexit. 
 
If you are coming in by air, my advice would be - 
Get a flight to one of the Milan airports 
If Milan Malpensa get the train direct to Como (c. 45 minutes) 
If other airport get the bus or taxi to Milan Centrale station, and train to Como (c. 30 minutes) 
Get the rapid ferry service from Como to Gravedona (c. 90 minutes)
