Incredibly often copied and yet never equaled! The largest nautical training center in Switzerland is the union of the HOZ Hochseezentrum International, the Swiss and International Maritime School with the Nautical Academy Switzerland. It offers... everything that future sailors and motorboat yachting enthusiasts need: sailing license, motorboat license and ocean license. Thanks to its sailing school and motorboat school on Lake Constance, the largest ocean license course offer in the whole of Switzerland and the wide sailing trip and motorboat milestone trip offer worldwide, the so-called HOZ GROUP has become the most popular nautical instructor in Switzerland.
The ATELIER FÜR KOMMUNIKATION, practice for theology and philosophy is the creative head of the whole HOZ GROUP. Since 1995 it offers PRIVATE-COACHING for people in responsibility and enterprises.
Sailing trip Greece 08/2023 with skipper Patrik:
instructive trip, from the half we were allowed to perform all tasks and maneuvers independently - the crew complemented each other very well with their respective strengths and we were able to enjoy a great time on board. Many thanks to skipper Patrik and his constructive coaching.
Sailing area Saronic and Argolic Gulf is very interesting; the Meltemi accompanied us daily, sometimes surprising with all its facets.
Nautical miles: 231 - I would have liked to aim for 250 nm and leave earlier in the morning.
Administration: Confirmation of the trip at short notice, because with coordination of vacations and job more planning security is desired.
My first offshore sailing trip with Patrik as skipper was a trip like in a picture book: in a wonderful, sunny country we were able to enjoy an all-around carefully organized and professional trip on a top boat with ideal sailing conditions. A big thank you and anytime again!
The Greekbnland cruise led by Patrik was very instructive, and has brought me further. He organized the trip very professionally and responded to changing conditions with great care, dedication and flexibility. He responded to questions and criticism very professionally and constructively. The climate on board was very friendly, helpful and constructive. Although we "only" achieved 231 instead of 250 miles, we were able to relax a bit in the evenings and enjoy the outing all together.
In advance of the trip I would have liked more precise and earlier information on when to arrive where and from when and where you will be free again, so that you can better plan arrival and return. Otherwise, support and flexibility from the back office were exemplary.
Participation in a passage trip with various very challenging situations for the crew. In particular, an attack on the boat by orcas, with sinking of the boat as a result. Not only in this situation, but already before calm and outstanding crisis management on the part of the skipper! Thank you Werni, would always like to go with you on the water!
I had already chartered a cat 3 times with friends and we struggled quite a bit with it in the beginning. Therefore, I decided to participate in this cat course. It was a "complete success". Peter, our skipper explained us the handling very exactly and also demonstrated it. From day to day he increased our tasks with the cat. He showed no nervousness. The week flew by, because he also taught the theoretical part in the morning in an exciting and understandable way. There was always a little story to material to be able to remember it better.
We were a super crew and had a lot of fun together. Everything went hand in hand.
In summary, I want to say that I would go to sea with this crew and skipper Peter anytime!
The first catamaran course at Hoz and it was a great success. I would like to thank our skipper Peter, sincerely. A competent leadership, which informed us with the morning theory lessons about everything important that a good skipper must know.
At noon we could put the theory into practice with many harbor maneuvers and with good wind, he has passed on to us many good tips in the sailing maneuvers.
I can only recommend this course and thank you also for the great crew, which contributed to the good success.
At HOZ Hochseezentrum your commitment is appreciated, whether you are an instructor, a skipper or a staff member/intern in the back office. A lot of trust is placed in us, which leads to sufficient and sustainable competence building - simply put: We are learning by doing with trusting. This leads to a constructive atmosphere among our employees in the context of our cooperation. Due to our diverse mix of employees, our daily routine consists of constant challenges, but we master them as a crew. I appreciate the variety of our daily work and the family atmosphere in the crew the most.
Instead of 4 people plus 1 skipper as promised by Hotz before the turn, we were effectively 5 people plus 2 skippers. We were not informed about this.
The two skippers often did not agree on the maneuvers. Beforehand, the maneuvers were also not agreed and often it was chaotic to and fro.
Targeted port maneuvers such as repeated docking and casting off were announced by the skippers, but not carried out.
Conclusion: I was often confused and learned nothing. I am disappointed.
My name is Patrik. I will write with you in the course at the end of the card assignments. I suffer from test anxiety, dyscalculia and am not used to going back to school after 25 years. I was very nervous on the first day. But as time went by, my nervousness subsided because of the way (coaching) and the confidence (competence) how at HOZ the course instructors (Christoph and Basil) teach me.
In my case, the private lessons are simply good. Full recommendation!
Our motorboat mileage cruise from May 15-24 in Croatia was much more than just pushing the throttle forward and making 500 nm: Entertaining and educational, a nice group experience, great weather and even better food. From our skipper Silke Eggert we could learn a lot, new things - and also a lot of things we should have known :-)
We listened to the many exciting stories of sailing adventures with great pleasure and memorized some things so that we do not have to make all the mistakes ourselves in our future as skippers. Thank you Silke, keep up the good work!

I would like to give a short feedback about the cruise.
This was the BEST mileage trip I have ever done. We have learned a lot with Silke !
Silke is a very experienced and calm skipper. We enjoyed an all-encompassing training, nothing was left out what it takes to be able to charter a boat yourself and safely.
Who only wants to collect miles quickly, is with Silke at the wrong place! But if you really want to learn a lot on the trip, you have to hire Silke.
Only with her fast North High German I had at the beginning some trouble and understood it sometimes not correctly. But that settled with time.
It would be nice if you would give Silke my feedback.
