The “Centomiglia”


Another sporting event at international level is the Centomiglia, the sailing race that has been held on Lake Garda at the beginning of every September since 1951. This is the most prestigious and famous sailing competition on inland waters in Europe and there are always hundreds of entrants so the small yachting harbour of Bogliaco where the race starts from is turned into a meeting place for the international sailing world during the few days prior to the race.

The course runs between Bogliaco (start and finish point), Riva, Sirmione, Desenzano, and Salò and is a marvellous spectacle in the sun against the back-drop of the mountains.
