Foiling Superstars to take over Lake Garda

From September 1st to the 7th the best moth sailors in the world will hash it out at the Fraglia Vela Malcesine to crown the next World Champion at the “Redoro Frantoi Veneti” Moth World Championship. 



After Australia 2019 and England 2020, cancelled due to Covid, the awaited event arrives in Malcesine on the shores of Lake Garda.

With a history of over 70 years of regattas and an exceptional world-famous location for its winds, the Fraglia Vela Malcesine is ready to host the 2021 edition of the World Championship with a record number of registrations also from countries as distant as Australia, Argentina and New Zealand.

From September 1st to the 7th, more than 150 athletes from 24 nations and 4 continents will give life to exciting regattas to crown the 2021 Moth class World Champion in Malcesine on the Lake Garda waters.
