Introduction Sailing – Keelboats - Walensee

This event is aimed at experienced members and is the introduction to the sailboats provided for charter from the Walensee Segelschule (

The owner will brief us on the boat(s) and you are expected to demonstrate your ability to sail safely, execute maneuvers, etc.

The keelboats are a First 18 and a Tempest (2-4 persons), both in fair condition. After participation in this event, you may charter and skipper the boats either on your own or during a scheduled meetup! Please note that since both boats have less than 16 m2 of sail area, a D-Schein is not required.

The cost of the brief is 120 CHF / hour to be shared amongst participants. Assuming we would go through the brief in two hours, the total cost of the event will be 240 CHF.

To register, please RSVP to this event and then send an email from your private account (not from within to my account ([masked]). I will then inform you of my bank details. Registration is open until April 1st, 2014 at which time and depending on the number of participants, you will be required to transfer to my bank account your part of the assumed 240 CHF cost. Registration is final once I have received your fee. On the day of the event, you may be required to pay any additional cost associated with doing the brief in more than two hours. No shows will forfeit their fee, while cancelations don’t get a refund but carry it over as a credit for the next time the course will run. Late registration could be arranged by contacting me directly.

Each participant is expected to have their own sailing gear (foul weather gear, gloves, etc.).

The boats are located at Mühlehorn marina, which can be reached by train in less than an hour and a half from Zurich HB. Our meeting point is the Mühlehorn train station at 11:45.

A limit of 8 participants will be set with priority based on registration date. Please note that the event will be held ONLY IF there are 2 or more participants. Otherwise your participation fee will be returned.

    Hi Panos, an hour before should be enough, ie meet at 10:[masked] in Thalwil. Do you know if there is parking at Mühlehorn? Do you have an exact address for my GPS?

      Hi Jana. When I went to see the boats I parked on Mühletalstrasse right outside the marina and there seemed to be enough space. So I guess we will park there. The address would be Mühletalstrasse 1, 8874 Obstalden. I'll take the train down to Thalwil and will be there at 10:20. Do you want to meet at the train station, or is somewhere else more convenient?

      Hi Panos, I meet you and Antonio between 10:20 and 10:30 at Bahnhofstr. in Thalwil in front of the railways building. It is small, so we should see each other. I have a white Twingo. My phone number is[masked] 28. I will not check emails on saturday/sunday. So, if there is a change, please call or sms me.

    Jana, sounds great! What time do you want to leave Thalwil? Where do you want to meet?
    By the way, the sailing school is in Murg while the boats are at Mühlehorn. We will be leaving from the Mühlehorn marina thats why the Mühlehorn HB is our meeting point.
