Sailing clubs near Horgen / Zurich

Hi All!

T minus 13 Days till i arrive in Switzerland. Its coming around VERY fast and Im very excited.

With the move I have had to give up Kite Surfing as I have found out I cannot kite surf on the lake which is a little frustrating however it has given me the opportunity to take up a new sport!

I am looking to try my hand at sailing!

I was wondering if there is any sailing clubs or ways to get into sailing in the local area of Horgen or Zurich that are english speaking, open to absolute beginners like myself and also not costing an arm and a leg?

if there are such clubs do they operate throughout the year or jus the summer months?

Thanks in advance

Ed

Hi, I can give you some help as I am converting my license at the moment. Do you have more specific questions?

Kite surfing on Thunersee (Lake Thun) so you can still indulge on other lakes
