Junior Sailing

The Gstaad Yacht Club offers different Junior sailing opportunities on Optimists, Laser R and 420's.

Juniors - light wind conditions against a dreamlike backdrop

At the local level, the Gstaad Yacht Club organized again this year a junior sailing training in Hilterfingen. From May to September, all 8- to 16-year-olds who wanted to learn to sail could participate. The trainers teach the basics of sailing in German, English and French. On September 24th the final training took place, the juniors glided over the Thunersee with a wind strength of two Beauforts and had a lot of fun. Two long-time juniors sailed on the 420, a two-man dinghy and were accompanied by two "newcomers" who have returned to the region from the Bahamas. «The trainers are very good for us sailors, speak German and English, so we all come along. Learning to sail through a neighbouring yacht club was incredibly motivating. After we had a long break by moving, it was great to sail this summer with the Gstaad Yacht Club», wrote an enthusiastic Henri Mott to the club. The other juniors remained true to the optimist. If your children also want to start a sailing adventure, the organizers are happy if the junior group continues to grow. The Gstaad Yacht Club congratulates its sailors for their achievements and is looking forward to the upcoming season 2020.
