What you'll do

We will sail a 22ft Italian classic from 1977, which can accommodate 4 crew + captain for day tours. After leaving the harbour, we can hoist the sails and head East (if the wind permits) towards the Lavaux region where you will have a unique view on the UNESCO protected area, as well as a majestic view of the Alps. On board, you are free to participate in handling the boat, learn to sail or practice your skills. You can also just bask in the sun and enjoy the breath-taking views. If the wind is in our favour, we should reach the small village of Cully (about 1h15min by boat). If there is not enough wind, then we will travel a shorter distance by motor. We can drop the sails at anytime, take a swim, have a glass of local wine (beer if you prefer) over an interesting conversation and I'll happily take a few pictures of you in this magical scenery before heading back. We will spend about 2-3 hours on the water. Please leave high heals and your favourite clothes at home. Clothing should reflect the weather (bring an extra layer in case it gets chilly). I will provide a glass of wine each (or beer) but suggest that you take bottled water and a light snack with you. Please note that there are no toilets aboard this boat. This experience is child friendly! In case of bad weather the experience may be postponed or cancelled (fully refunded by Airbnb) in agreement with guests

Maxime

I discovered sailing when I was 3 years old and have been sailing regularly ever since. I've mostly sailed in the Adriatic but have been on a few passages in the Northern seas (Scotland) as well as around Cape Town when living there. I am a Professional Skipper with a Coastal licence and can operated Yachts up to 30 gross tons. I also hold the Swiss sailing licence for inland waters. After years of living abroad, in 2011 I decided to come back (I am Swiss) and settle down in the beautiful city of Lausanne.

A bottle of beer or glass of wine each (the captain and the crew need to remain sober while operating the vessel).
