Easter 2013! Lets go Sailing From Sitges (Barcelona) to Formentera (Balearic Islands) on board a beautiful sailboat Bavaria 50.

We'll participate in the sailing boat race "Ophiusa". This is a popular race that opens the sailing season every year. It starts in Sitges and ends in the beautiful & wild Formentera (Balearic Islands).

It's not necessary to have much experience in sailing to join, just to be willing to enjoy the sea and sharing this experience with the rest of the crew. You can also learn how to sail if you want.

    Easter sailing boat race "Ophiusa" is approaching and we need to start confirming our crew to the official organization. We only have 2 boats for this event so there are only some spots available… we expect to have both boats full in the next weeks, so if you are decided to come we recommend doing your reservation as soon as you can… don’t miss this unique and popular sailing boat race that takes place once a year!

    We will send an email to those who have made a MeetUp reservation with more details. Cheers!
