"It doesn't matter if you are 7 years old in the optical course, a teeny in the youngster camp or an adult and from beginner to perfection course on the Seascape 18! With all courses applies: Maximum fun and extremely fast learning progress through radio training and dedicated coaches."

Boris Hermann

Boris in an email to his family: 

Wenn Du richtig gut und mit viel Praxis segeln lernen willst, musst Du zu Heinz Stickl an den Gardasee gehen!

His family followed this advice and has been sailing enthusiastically in our courses for years.

Concept and program

Lake Garda and especially our location, the bay Val di Sogno, offer ideal conditions to start sailing. In small groups you learn in only five days the basics of sailing and immediately crosses with the Basic sailing licence in the bag.

This is also made possible by the exclusive training method with radio. The wireless connection from the trainer to the student allows us to sail alone from the first minute, even in medium winds. The instructor changes from boat to boat, from crew to crew and corrects the small group of 3-4 boats by radio directly at the right moment.

  • There are a maximum of 2-3 people sailing per boat, which means plenty of time for everyone at the tiller!
  • All school boats are equipped with trimming facilities for sportive sailing.
  • Practice has absolute priority.
  • Crews will also be based on the age of the students so no one is overwhelmed! Everyone can participate from 6-66 years!

We separate sail training by age groups into:

  • Kids sailing on optimists aged 6-12.
  • Youngster sailing from 12-16 years on the gliding dinghy RS-Feva.
  • Adult sailing from 16 years on the Dyas and Seacape 18.

There are children's and youth sailing courses for beginners and advanced sailors.

Adult courses are divided into beginner-advanced and perfection courses.

Our motto is to teach modern sailing with fun and intensive training. 

What makes us different from others?

"We see ourselves as a modern sport-oriented sailing school, which puts less emphasis on ever more advanced sailing licenses, but on training in sporty sailing. On dinghies and sporty keelboats, the 3 graded courses are more about sailing techniques, trapeze sailing and spinnaker sailing and about mastering one's boat than about inland navigation road regulations and seamanship. First-class sailing instructors, well-maintained boats and sailing practice in good winds - that is the secret of our success.!
