A breeze of solidarity on the lake

Sailing has many benefits. It offers a place to disconnect from the
everyday life, and helps building self-confidence through understanding the wind and nature’s elements.

Being aware of the many possibilities it offers, Anyone Can Sail, a
non-profit association, was created by Geneva Sailing School in 2021 at the Port des Pâquis. It provides introductory courses to social,
educational and cultural structures, adapting the cost of its services
to make sailing accessible to as many people as possible.

In a training perspective, beyond an introduction to sailing, the
association also goes further by following students who want to obtain their sailing license, a first step towards professional nautical

Group outings, sailing lessons, children’s courses at a rate adapted to your situation.
