Sailing at Lake St. Moritz

Like to learn to sail? The three large lakes in the Upper Engadin offer ideal conditions: steady winds, very good facilities and a magnificent mountain backdrop. In just one week, you can obtain a sailing permit for category D boats.

The Engadin has a long tradition of sailing. No wonder, the legendary Maloja wind promises steady winds from June to October. It was at the end of the 1930s that the Zurich Yacht Club discovered this special weather phenomenon and chose the Engadin as an alternative venue for its regattas. Just a few years later, in 1941, the St. Moritz Sailing Club was founded – and the Engadin established itself as a popular sailing region where novices can learn to sail easily.

Courses for advanced sailors and beginners alike

The sailing club offers a variety of sailing courses on Lake St. Moritz for experienced sailors as well as beginners. For children, too, there are special courses in small classes of boat. Thanks to the manageable size of Lake St. Moritz, the shore is never far away, and no sailing experience is required to book a course. As the wind blows pretty much every day, manoeuvres such as tacking and gybing are quickly learned – and course participants can take the exam for a D permit in just one week.

You can also learn to sail easily on the two larger lakes, Lake Silvaplana and Lake Sils. Various sailing schools offer courses or take prospective sailors for an outing on the lake. On Lake Silvaplana, you will find the sailing school at the windsurf centre. On Lake Sils, the moorings for sailing boats are at Plaun da Lej: an idyllic spot on the road between Maloja and Sils, also known for the excellent Murtaröl fish restaurant.
