In Rapperswil-Jona SG, Roger Federer wants to build a boathouse on his property located directly on the lake. But the Rives Publiques association lodged an objection with the canton of St. Gallen SRF mentioned.

The association has been campaigning for free access to Swiss lakes and waterways since 2003. President Victor von Wartburg “has nothing against Roger Federer or other people who abuse banks,” he told SRF.

“But they shouldn't take away people's banks.”

Rives Publiques fears that approval to build the port will lead to banks being built all over Switzerland.

The Department of Construction and Environment in St. Gallen confirmed to the SRF that an objection had been received against the port:

“There was already an objection to the planning application. We expected that the canton would also submit an objection to the permit application.”

The next step is to clarify things. These are intended to clarify whether the marina planned by Roger Federer is allowed in the water area. The canton expects this to take about two months.

But objections also remain pending in Rapperswil-Jona itself. These are affected by the cantons' decision.

He sinks to his knees and tears flow. “Magic, hard to believe,” says Federer.
