The story of Sail & Discover
I would like to thank all those who allowed me to live this wonderful adventure, who appreciated the time spent with me and who trusted me. Sail & Discover would not exist without Claire-Lise and Yves Haldemann, their support throughout these years has been invaluable to me. Of course, I thank Constantin Christov very much for believing in our project, and also for having done everything possible to allow us to continue to share these wonderful landscapes and the love of the sea.
My special thanks go to Christelle, my partner, my right-hand at Sail & Discover, my hard drive and the one without whom I could not live fully.
A new chapter has just opened for Sail & Discover, we look forward to writing the story with you.
See you soon on board.
At the end of 2011, with the help and support of my friends Claire-Lise and Yves Haldemann, we created Sail & Discover Sarl, based in Geneva, Switzerland. For more than forty years, sailing was my passion, now, thanks to Sail & Discover, it has become my way of life.
Throughout these years, we continued to organize theme cruises, privatized, tailor-made sailing cruises in Croatia, Scotland, Greece, Italy and the Caribbean.
The modus operandi is simple : one contact, one project, one skipper, one sailboat, one sailing area, and we have found the recipe for pleasure at sea. My path as a skipper was clear, by the pleasure I have with this activity and by the positive feedback from those who have placed their trust in us.
During a cruise in the summer 2018, I met Constantin Christov, we both wanted to sail. We decided to join our forces and in January 2019, the company Sail & Discover SAS was born.
The purchase of a Bavaria 50 has completed the Sail & Discover family.
Our new sailboat is located in 2019 in the Ionian Sea, Greece.
Our first season with Chronos went well and the boat gave us complete satisfaction. 2019 was a pivotal year because we still organized and managed cruises in other areas with chartered yachts. We are looking forward to sailing a full season with our yacht.
We had planned the season 2020 between Croatia and Greece, with one way and crossings but due to the global health crisis, the launch of our season had to be postponed and modified. We had to reorganize. So I am continuing the Sail & Discover adventure as an independent and my cruises will be mainly in Greece and with S/Y Chronos.
Ready for the first cruise of the year. We have waited so long for it and are fully happy to be back on board. What a joy to see this nature again, Greece is more beautiful than ever! We are waiting for you to share these beautiful moments.
