Scuola Nautica Sonia

Sonia Nautical School has a long history and tradition on Lake Maggiore in Ticino. Founded in 1952, the school was created by Sonia with the goal of passing on the passion for sailing to all those who wish to learn and become captains.

Born and raised in the Locarno area, for Mattia Pedretti, the lake has always been a constant presence from which he derives his deep attraction to water sports. One day after going wakeboarding and wave after wave, he became passionate about all that the lake and boating represent. In 2015, driven by this strong passion, he took over Sonia Nautical School. Since then, Mattia passion is his job allows him to teach the fundamentals, the art, and the secrets of becoming an excellent future captain.

Sonia Nautical School's instructors are young and experienced people who share their passion for the lake and motor boating with students who take on the challenge of becoming captains. Through theoretical and practical lessons, students learn how to navigate safely, discover Lake Maggiore, manage the vessel with maneuvers and moorings, and respect the rules of navigation and all types of boats that populate the lake.
