Welcome to Scuola Vela Ascona—Asconautica.

We gladly offer lessons of all kind: from the beginner’s course to regatta coaching, all is available.


In general: 

In order to obtain a Swiss boat driving license, one first needs to pass a theoretical examination followed by a practical exam. The minimum age required is 14 years.

The theory can be studied autonomously. Alternatively to the official booklet (which also includes a CD with the questions), we recommend the purchasing of the study DVD by Boatdriver (the latter can be purchased online or at our sailing school).

In order to prepare for the practical examination, just get in touch with our office and we will fix the appointments for the on the water lessons for the D course as we go. We wish you a lot of fun and success.
