Sail & Discover

Our story

 

Thank you

I would like to thank all of my customers who allowed me to live this wonderful adventure, who appreciated our sailing vacation, the time spent with me and who trusted me. Sail & Discover would not exist without them. 

A special thank goes to Claire-Lise and Yves, my first partners, who allowed me to start Sail & Discover. Their support throughout these years has been very invaluable.  

I thank Constantin 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 with our yacht, Chronos

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.

Screw it, let's do it.

At the end of 2011, with the help and support of my friends Claire-Lise and Yves, 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.

Cruising speed reached with a good progression

Throughout these years, we organized and I skippered privatized sailing cruises with charter yachts in France, Greece, Croatia, Italy, Scotland and the Caribbean. 

The modus operandi is simple : one contact, one project, one skipper, one sailboat, one sailing area, and we had 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.

New partnership & purchase of Chronos

During a cruise in the summer 2018, I met Constantin and had the same will to sail and to share it to the many, We decided to join our forces and in January 2019, the company Sail & Discover SAS was created.

The purchase of a Bavaria 50 has completed the Sail & Discover family. We named the yacht Chronos as the time on a yacht is so valuable.

Chronos set its home base in the Ionian, Greece

Our first season with Chronos

Our first season with Chronos went well and we were very happy with the acquisition. 2019 was a pivotal year as  we still organized and managed cruises in other areas with chartered yachts. We are looking forward to sailing a full season with our own yacht.

Covid 19 - Pandemic

We had planned the season 2020 toi sail between Croatia and Greece, with one ways and crossings, but due to the global pandemic, the launch of our season had to be postponed and modified. We had to reorganize. As a consequence, we closed the company and I continue Sail & Discover adventure as self employed and skipper for S/Y Chronos. We decided to concentrate our cruises in the Ionian in Greece.

Still afloat

The 2020 season started late in July due to the pandemic but we were lucky to be able to organize sailing vacations until the end of October, thanks to customers who took the risks to come to Greece and they did not regret it. It was a great season with much less boats on the water and a Greece even more authentic.
