Bol D’Or 14 – 16 June

This is a race from Geneva to the end of the lake, Le Bouveret and back which is 123Km. The race begins at 10am. The race conditions vary considerably and are very unpredictable – it can be absolutely calm without a breath of wind or can be howling gales.

“Organised for the first time in 1939, the Bol d’Or has become the most important World regatta on an inland lake. A large and popular nautical festival, the Bol d’Or has become one of the great classics of the international regatta agenda. Each year, champions from all over Europe meet on the starting line, in the company of nearly six hundred sailboats.”

About the Author

Originally from the UK, I have a legal background. I have been in the Geneva area since 2005 and love the mountains, the lake and the quality of life here. The Winter snow sports are fantastic and the Summer season is full of festivals, outdoor sports, picnics and barbecues. I have met some great people here from all of the world. Geneva is a cosmopolitan city with lots of cultural events and good restaurants and bars and I hope that through Biskotti I can share a few hidden places I have discovered…
