Sailing

We offer classes for all levels and for all ages with certified sailing instructors, who are pleased to pass on their knowledge and their passion for this sport. We teach in German and English. You practise on our Ixylon dinghys, which are suitable for 3-4 people maximum. For our sailing students we offer special rental tariffs for further practice after lessons and after completion of the course.

Do not forget to bring sunscreen and a towel. Comfortable clothes and shoes (no slippery sole!) that can get wet and are suited for sports practice are recommended. We also suggest taking spare clothing with you and if you have glasses, bring glass straps. For the safety of our students we provide everyone with a life jacket. Please note that swimming skills are required to participate in any of our sailing courses.
