 ° Nautical activities on the Annecy Lake

With a 14,6 km length and a maximum width of 3,1 km the Annecy Lake offers all the conditions that are ideal for water sports. The lake being mainly North-South, northerly winds facilitate sports such as the fun-board or the kite-surf. Predominantly, a light breeze from West is just nice for other traditional veil sports. The S.R.V.A (Annecy’s company of the regattas with veil) organizes courses of veil and windsurfing for the adults or the children=> www.srva.info



Other water activities for you to enjoy: Swimming, snorkelling & diving, sailing (pleasure and tourism), motonautism, rowing, water skiing, canoeing, kayaking etc.
