We as three generations including a seven month old baby, enjoyed a lovely day sailing around the lake. Rene was a perfect host, finding us a secluded picnic spot on an uninhabited island. Thank you.

If you want a relaxed day, this is definitely recommended. If you want it a bit more exciting, Captain Rene teaches you to steer the boat. Rene was a very nice guide for this activity!!

This is a course for both the complete beginner and those who may already have some experience of either dinghy sailing or cruising. An ideal way to learn more about sailing in a VERY FUN and SAFE environment.
