At present, sailing is only offered on an individual basis. The Sport Service should be able to open its sailing base in Dongo (Lake Como) from the spring semester of 2024.
It will be possible to practice the activity on an individual basis or follow courses that will be offered on dinghies (Laser and Laser vago).


Thanks to partnerships established between the Sport Service and external clubs, students and employees have the opportunity to take advantage of preferential rates for the rental of sailing boats, as well as access to the course to obtain the international sailing licence without limits from the coast, at a special price.


Thanks to an agreement with the Circolo Velico Lago di Lugano (Foce area, Cassarate river), USI/SUPSI students and employees have the opportunity to rent various types of boats (Optimist, Laser, Omega, Yngling and Topaz 14) at a 50% discount on the list price.

More information is available in the appropriate tab.
