This is the second newsletter of the World University Sailing Championship 2020.
The event will be held in CAMPIONE del GARDA (Italy) from June 30th to July 4th, 2020 organized by the “Univela Sailing” in cooperation with the “CUS Centro Universitario Sportivo” University of Trento and CUS Centro Universitario Sportivo” University of Brescia.
In the last month, the O.C. sent the Invitation Letter to all National Organizations of University Sports.

Please get in touch with your National Federation of the University Sports (or similar authority) for enrolment to the event.
The Championship Opening Ceremony will be held on 29th June and the operations are done on the waters of the Lake Garda that is situated 70 mt above sea level and it’s one of the most famous locations of the world for sailing from 30th June.
Campione del Garda and Lake Garda are situated in the north part of Italy, just 1 hour driving from major airport and 30 Km away from Riva del Garda, 60 Km away from Brescia and 100 Km away from Verona.
Each team must consist of two female sailors and two male sailors. Each team can choose roles at their will.
The teams will be hosted in rooms for 2 or 4 people at UNIVELA with full-board.
The transportation from Verona and Bergamo Airport is provided by the O.C.
The winds on the lakes are the Ora, typical wind of Garda, but not as strong as those on north Lake Garda, making Match Races and Team Races very interesting due to the reliability and strengths of the wind, the extent of sailable hours per day and the absolute lack of waves and tide.
The O.C. will provide boats type JBoat 70 equalized for Match / Team Race.
The race area will be in front of Univela Campione del Garda.
