Racing Team

In 2008 began what has not yet been acknowledged in the Swiss sailing world. 

The Gstaad Yacht Club supported teams with private members engagement to attend the Olympics in 2004 in Athens and 2008 in Bejing, China. 

Soon after the GYC Racing team was founded to support young sailing talent from Switzerland to represent the country in the Olympics and other international races, Weymouth 2012 and Rio 2016 – just to name a few. Since the GYC has launched its Racing Team, club members have successfully competed in international regattas and in the Olympics in the following classes: - 470, Finn, Laser Radial and Standard, Nacra 17, Star, RS:X Windsurf. 

Our club support young sailors in different junior classes to achieve their goals. They range from very experienced juniors like Nicolas Rolaz, who already has a World Champion title in the Optimist, to Emilie Tschanz who is at the beginning of her sailing career. They make big steps to achieve their goals and are willing to fight for it. 
All nine are part of the Swiss Sailing Team and the GYC is their common home away from home whenever they visit Gstaad.
