What you'll do
After leaving the mooring, we sail for three hours aboard our american long keel, two masts, ocean cruiser, modern-classic design sailing vessel, a Pearson 424, an example of sustainability, balance, and beauty. Aboard you can participate to the handling of the boat and learn sailing basics or improve your skills. Or just relax on the huge cockpit and deck, enjoying during three hours a huge space of oxygen and silence, just next to the city. Only few minutes after leaving the harbor we are sailing surrounded by nature. For everybody on board is an opportunity to discover how a sailing boat works, learning by doing and steering the boat. We sail towards the Mediterranean horizon during more than one hour, before tacking or jibing and sailing back, heading to the coast of Barcelona. You can admire the skyline of our beautiful city from a completely new perspective. If sea and wind conditions allow us, we can also have a swim. Back at the mooring we will enjoy drinks, Catalan white wine and high quality tapas (Catalan Country bread, Manchego cheese, etc.). This is our newest experience.

I discovered sailing when I was a child, about 45 years ago. Since then I have been sailing mostly in the Mediterranean and Atlantic. I am a professional skipper with British Maritime and Coastguard Agency/RYA Yachtmaster Offshore title. After developing my own business and teaching at the University of Barcelona, I founded the Barcelona Balearics Sailing Association with a group of friends. We realized an old project—to transmit our passion for the sea teaching sailing as a way to provide a goal for kids to stay focused and forge a path in the world, regardless of their income or background.
