Sailing School

Training:

A Category D qualification is required for sailboats being sailed on Swiss waters with a sail area of more than 15 m2.

We will guide you in all matters from your boat theory test through to your undoubtedly successful practical sailboat exam.

We will also be responsible for the organisation of your training and for formalities with the shipping office. The individual needs of our students are very important to us. The pace of learning is adjusted accordingly to your prior knowledge and level of training.
