Spinaker training on the First 40

Sailing Yacht Regatta

Yacht Sailing / Yacht Regatta Event in Barcelona with Barcelona Watersports

Our Yacht Regatta involves learning, team work and competition – perfect for a corporate or group event. In this event you will have the opportunity to learn how to sail and even race a yacht whilst viewing Barcelona and its famous landmarks from the Mediterranean sea. We will take you out as a total beginner and bring you back as part of the crew, having had a real taste of what yachting is all about. After a short briefing with the skipper you will motor out of prestigious Port Vell and get busy hoisting the sails. Once clear of the marina entrance it will then be time to turn off the engine and harness the power of the wind. This regatta will be spent getting to grips with the basics of sailing under the watchful eye of one of our yacht masters. You will then get the chance to race the yachts.
