As mornings on lakes go, this one is almost perfect.

A blue sky lends its colour to the surface of the lake, the sun adds sparkle, and a breeze pushes warm air across the deck. In the distance, lakeside villages sit peacefully under green hills and send churchbell sounds out onto the water, all under the background of the Alps. We are on a small yacht and it would be the ideal setting for sailing. We even have sails. The problem though, is that most people on the boat can’t work out how to hoist them…
