What you'll do

After leaving the harbor, we'll sail for two hours and a half aboard our American long keel, two masts, modern-classic sailing vessel—a Pearson 424—an example of sustainability, balance and beauty. On board, our guests can participate in handling the boat, learn to sail or improve skills, hoist and trim the sails, and steer the boat.
You can also feel free to relax and enjoy the sun and the sea, a huge space of fresh air and silence, and breathtaking views of the city.

With the thermal wind blowing along the Spanish coast throughout the year, we'll sail towards the Mediterranean horizon, then tack or jibe and sail back, heading to the coast and to the skyline of Barcelona.
Once we leave the harbor, you will be almost immediately surrounded by nature.

When the time is right, we will enjoy some drinks (mineral water, local beer from Barcelona, Coca-Cola) and Catalan white wine (Penedès or Priorat).
Respecting and following Airbnb anti-Covid requirements and safety measures we will offer high quality snacks :
- Traditional Catalan "Pa de Pagès" sourdough Country Bread.
- Guacamole with nachos (vegan and vegetarian option).
- Manchego Cheese (vegetarian).

We are the only sailing experience in Barcelona with two professional skippers onboard at every trip.

Other things to note:
Please remember to bring a pullover, a hat, sun cream, shoes with rubber soles.

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, in 2013 with a group of friends I founded the Barcelona Balearics Sailing Association.
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.
During last 4 summers, 450 young people and adults discovered and practiced sailing and navigation with our Community Sailing activities in collaboration with Caritas.

About the organization: Associació de Navegació a Vela Barcelona Balears



The Barcelona Balearics Sailing Association was founded to offer everyone the opportunity to live the enriching experience of sailing, throughout the year and at a reasonable cost. Many young people and adults through our Community Sailing project in collaboration with Caritas, can discover and practice sailing and navigation aboard our boat.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to Associació de Navegació a Vela Barcelona Balears .

Where you'll be

We will leave the mooring from Port Olimpic, in front of Barcelona City Centre. Pushed by the thermal wind blowing along the coast throughout the year, we will sail towards the horizon during more than one hour, before tacking or jibing and sailing back to the coast and to the skyline of Barcelona.

Juste GE-NI-AL ! Voici une expérience qui donne une touche vraiment originale au voyage :) Nous avons été accueillies chaleureusement. Giambattista et David sont des professionnels en qui nous avons eu toute confiance. Mer calme ou agitée, tout était sous contrôle. Et avoir l'occasion de barrer ne se présente pas tous les jours, wooow ! Nous saluons aussi leur engagement pour l'association qui permet aux enfants de partager sa passion . Merci encore !

Giambattista and Dave we’re absolutely fabulous. We had a wonderful evening. They served us local fresh tapas, beer, and wine and made our trip very comfortable. They were also very accommodating and patient with our grandmother, and did their best to make her comfortable and safe. This trip was much better than we expected and we would definitely repeat the experience. Thank you Gianbattista and Dave!!!

Stop hesitating and Just book it!!! It was really so nice and with a drink and some tapas to make it perfect! There’s always attention to the safety of everyone - which is very important as well. They took time to explain the sailing and you could try it yourself which my boyfriend found amazing ofcourse! Was perfect!

We had a lovely time! I should have taken some sea sick pills, but I made it through. Lovely sights and even better company. Tasty treats and beverages were a nice touch. And the host takes the best photos of guests!
