The passion for water sports I discovered already in my childhood.
At the age of eight, I stood on a windsurfing board for the first time. At this point I did not suspect that this fascination will accompany me for many years.

Soon after, another sport aroused my interest, which continues to inspire me to this day:


My pastimes took me to many beautiful and windy areas around the globe.
To expand my knowledge and skills, I completed a variety of training courses up to the sailing instructor and regatta coach.

In 2018, I finished my previous position as a bank manager and realized my big dream.
I turned my hobby into a profession and founded the company MY Yachting and Mayer Yachting.
