Barcelona Balearics Sailing Association

Associació de Navegació a Vela Barcelona Balears

What We Offer Our Associates

As an association, we comprise of individuals who work together to achieve a common purpose. Our purpose is to sail with like minded people and to enjoy the fascinating world of sailing on a non profit basis. Joining as a sailing associate of Barcelona Balearics Sailing Association (Associació de Navegació a Vela Barcelona Balears, registered at Consell Catalá del Esport since the 14th of January 2013- registration number 27243) you can choose your ideal sailing experience. You have an option to simply relax on the teak deck after either a hectic days work or busy day touring the city, or participate in all sailing activities with our skippers as you wish.

This is the ideal solution for those who want to learn to sail and improve their sailing experience before chartering a sailing boat on their own or require further practice to gain confidence in the handling of a classic sailing boat. We also welcome associates that enjoy sailing often to meet other like minded sailors to share the sailing passion.

As an associate you will be able to register for all sailing activities through normal channels of communication such as; phone, email, social media channels such as Facebook, Trip Advisor and our Meet Up pages, for your convenience.

Being A Member

The Barcelona Balearics Sailing Association must insist that a few basic conditions are met  to ensure that we have suitable personalities onboard every trip with us. They are as follows;

You must have at least 3 hours of sailing experience on a sailing boat of no more than 30 metres in length.

As associates you must be conscious and aware of preserving our marine environment at all times. No rubbish is to be dropped overboard into the water, and whilst swimming no marine life is to be touched or disturbed unnecessarily.

For safety reasons and the sake of good ambience onboard the boat, associates turning up to a sailing event under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to board the boat or participate in a sailing event in any way.

No persons under the age of 18 shall attend a sailing event not accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.

Associates should bring with them to every sailing event their own membership card for identification purposes if required.

Good behaviour to all other members onboard the boat shall be observed at all times. Failure to do so will result in loss of membership without a refund of any initial fees or costs.

The captain's discretion is final.

Sailing Activity

The Barcelona Balearics Sailing Association is here to show you that to learn to sail is "learning by sailing". You will be sailing with a maximum of 8 members on board our classic Rival 38 sailing boat, inclusive of a skipper. After a short safety briefing, the skipper will assign a task to participants adjusting to their sailing knowledge and makes sure that all crew members take turns of the different activities as they wish.  Members with least experience learn the basic concepts of sailing while those with more experience learn and improve the trimming of the sails and correct their errors. Some associates just know how to have good sailing fun and enjoy the beauty of sailing along the Catalan coastline.


Associació de Navegació a Vela Barcelona-Balears

Qué ofrecemos a nuestros asociados

Como asociación somos un grupo de gente que trabaja junta con un objetivo común. Navegamos con personas que aman el mar y disfrutan del fascinante mundo de la navegación a vela sin ánimo de lucro. Unirse como asociado a la Associació de Navegació a Vela Barcelona Balears (registrada en el Consell Català de l'esport desde el 14 de enero 2013, número de registro 27243) te permite escoger tu experiencia de navegación ideal. Puedes elegir entre relajarte en cubierta después de un día duro de trabajo (o de turismo en la ciudad), y participar activamente en todas las actividades de navegación con nuestros skippers.

Ésta es una solución ideal para aquellos que quieren aprender a navegar y mejorar su experiencia como marineros antes de llevar solos un barco, o para los que necesitan más práctica para ganar confianza en el manejo de un barco a vela clásico. También estaremos encantados de recibir a bordo asociados que deseen navegar con frecuencia y conocer otras personas apasionadas por la navegación.

Como asociado podrás apuntarte a todas nuestras actividades de navegación a través de los canales de comunicación habituales: teléfono, email, redes sociales (Facebook, Trip Advisor o nuestras páginas en Meet Up).

La navegación

L'Associació de Navegació a Vela Barcelona Balears quiere demostrar a sus miembros que a navegar se aprende navegando. Navegamos un máximo de 8 personas a bordo en nuestro Rival 38 clásico, skipper incluido. Después de unas instrucciones iniciales, el skipper asignará diferentes tareas a los participantes. Dichas tareas se ajustarán a sus conocimientos y experiencia, y se asegurará de que los diferentes asociados participan en la mayoría de ellas. Los miembros con menos experiencia aprenderán las nociones más básicas mientras que los más experimentados tendrán la oportunidad de manejar las velas y corregir así posibles errores. 

Nuestros asociados saben cómo disfrutar de una buena navegación y disfrutar de la belleza de la costa catalana.


We share this MeetUp page with some friends, everyone with his own boat and with his own indipendent company or association in Port Olimpic. 

They are offering a wide variety of sailing experiences in Barcelona and beyond.

For those with no previous experience of sailing, this group offers a great opportunity to "get your feet wet" with the help of experienced skippers. You can come along and learn the basics of navigation from your first day. 

For those with more experience, this page will provide you with plenty of opportunities to get involved in sailing a wide range of boats and to practice all those skills you learned on sailing courses in the past.

And we will also be offering relaxed social sailing events, where you can sip a glass of wine and enjoy the view and you won't have to haul on the ropes and steer a straight course! 

Our skippers and their yachts are also available for private hire 

For parties, relaxing cruises, corporate events, tourist trips, birthdays, stag or hen events, team building or anything else, get in touch. 

You can find out more about our skippers and their boats by visiting their websites:

• Skipper Dave and his classic yacht Gemini -

• Skipper Isgar and his modern regatta racing yacht Samba -

• Skipper Dani organizes all kinds of trips on a range of modern cruising yachts -
