A splendid nautical base in Dervio, in the most windy part of Lario.
Dervio, in the province of Lecco, is a place known throughout Lombardy and northern Europe by lovers of water sports who have to do, in one way or another, with air and water. Pristine environment and constant presence of wind are the main characteristics of this special spot, where Orza Scuola Vela holds its permanent sailing courses for adults and the sailing campus for children and teenagers.
The base is immersed in a huge green lawn at the edge of the lake and a few meters from the port of Santa Cecilia where our keel boats are located. The structure has everything you need: comfortable bedrooms, bathrooms and showers, kitchen and classroom, tool room and garden. The course participants stay in rooms equipped with bunk beds. Two steps in the green meadow looking at the lake and you arrive at the port where our boats are located. After the arming of the boats and two brief explanations, we leave the port and apply the lesson that was explained before on the blackboard on the water.
