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.
Stephan, co-Founder and skipper
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.
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.
Sail & Discover Yourself, our new venture
We are starting in 2021 our new venture, Sail & Discover Yourself.
It has been a while that I wanted to combine sailing vacation with personal development and wellbeing coaching.
Living full time on Chronos
I have been now living for eleven consecutive months on Chronos and my decision is taken to make it my home.
For thus, Chronos needs to be isolated and a hot air heating system installed. The yacht lies in the water at the Corfu Sailing Club, which is a perfect place to stay and work on the boat.
There is also a nice community of sailor living on their boats with whom we share a good time and help each others out.
