The sailing school within Univela is managed by the Andrew Simpson Foundation team. This means that all proceeds go towards financing the charitable activities carried out by the foundation. It also means that all the instructors are native English speakers and have followed a professional path that has led them to be certified by the Royal Yachting Association and by the Italian Sailing Federation.

CAMPIONE DEL GARDA

First of all, Campione del Garda remains completely free of cars, traffic and pollution. We are on a peninsula connected only by 2 tunnels to the other villages on the coast. An oasis of peace where you can devote yourself to sport and nature. The famous road called the Forra di Tremosine starts from Campione del Garda: the road that Winston Curchill called the Eighth Wonder of the World, and in more recent times location of important films, spots, video clips. Last in order of time you can see it in the music video of Alessandra Amoroso. In 2008 it was used as a set for the 007 film "Quantum of Solace", the 22nd in the saga dedicated to the novels of Ian Flemming, to film the Aston Martin chased by the Specter villains.
