Sailing in the summer sun

Every time I think summer’s arrived, it goes cold and wet again! In fact there is even fresh snow on our mountains. However, one place the weather and winds are reliable is in Greece and we have just a few spaces left this year: 12 August –for a week-long Day Skipper...

Ahoy! Sail away with us this autumn

Just because the summer is starting to wind down (not so long after finally arriving), that does not mean that Sail YSL is thinking about hibernating. We still have a number of events, trips and courses coming in the rest of 2016:     We will be exhibiting...

A short Lakemotions update

The club is dead, long live the Club!

In response to obvious demand, today we are relaunching the Sail YSL Club in a completely new form. No more annual or monthly fees. No more complex packages. No more payments through the winter. Just one, simple, pay-as-you-go setup. From now on, if you live in...

It’s all about the timing…

31st January is nearly upon us, after which prices for this year’s skippered charters in Greece and RYA theory courses here in Richterswil will increase. If you have been thinking about a holiday on sparkling turquoise seas, you have just 7 days left to book with us...
