The Sailing Club at Classic Sail Barcelona


12 Apr 2016 | Last update: 23 Dec 2020

If you would like to come sailing regularly on Gemini at a reduced cost, join the club!

Learn by doing

For beginners, the skipper will show you the ropes and introduce you to the world of sailing.

For old hands, the club offers a unique opportunity to sail a very special and exciting cruiser/racer from 1947.

Learn to sail by getting out on the water and sailing. The atmosphere on board is informal, but you will learn rapidly by taking control of the boat. From the moment we untie from the dock, to the moment we return, the crew will handle all aspects of sailing the boat, under the supervision and instruction of an experienced skipper.

Practice your skills

Already have a sailing qualification? Looking for opportunities to sail regularly? The sailing club at Classic Sail Barcelona is a great place to build your confidence by regularly sailing a beautiful, fast classic yacht.

As well as boat handling, you will also learn about and practice navigation techniques, pilotage, collision regulations, weather forecasting, radar, GPS, communications, safety at sea, passage planning, and all the other skills necessary for safely navigating a yacht on an extended cruise.

The route to adventure

As the club develops, there will be opportunities to vary our activities, with night sailing, overnight trips, training days, extended adventure cruises and any other sailing activity that takes our fancy.

Join the club

Regular club sailing days normally take place during the afternoon. We sail through the week as well as on the weekend. Everyone gets the chance to be fully involved in sailing the boat.

The club is organised on Meetup.com. Simply sign up on our group page and you will be notified about all our sailing events. You can sign up to each event on the Meetup page. Our page is at Classic Sailing Barcelona Meetup. Classic Sailing Barcelona

Fun boat ride-a little choppy

Dave and his son Diego were great sailors and excellent guides and hosts on their lovely boat. Had great weather for as early in the season as it was. Seas were a bit choppy though, and would have been better had we followed Dave’s sound advice of taking Dramamine beforehand for a few of our group. Highly recommend the experience and the captain!

Great wind, great sail!

Our sail with Dave on the Gemini was fantastic. Dave was quick to get us information on booking and how to locate the boat. He was ready for departure as soon as we arrived. Gemini is a classic old wooden boat that is very stable and takes the water beautifully. Our weather was perfect with lots of wind which made for a great sail. Dave stopped so we could jump in the ocean for a swim. It was a great afternoon and we highly recommend this boat. Dave was a pleasant host and let my husband and daughter help sail. It was super easy to get to using the metro.

A flawless Barcelona Experience, beautiful sailing adventure!

We have nothing but good things to say about our sailing trip with Dave. We created this Trip Advisor account just so that we could write a review for this experience. We went on a morning excursion that took us about 2 miles off the Barcelona coastline and lasted around 3 hours. The harbor was actually closed when we started but he still took us out for the full experience despite the delay. Very accommodating when I got a little sea-sick and was more than understanding, which was a huge positive for us. We slept in the sun for quite a bit of our journey. If you're worried about having to carry a conversation or awkward silences, don't be! He was very charming and conversational when needed but gave us our space as well. We will definitely be doing this again next time we are in the area!

Very Professional

We recently booked this tour. The process was extremely clean and easy. We made a deposit and had confirmation instantly. We contacted the captain throughout the process and he always got back to us quickly. Unfortunately, the day the trip was scheduled the weather was quite bad. We contacted the captain ~ 1 hour before and advised of our weather concern. The captain got right back to us and gave us the option to cancel. We unfortunately did cancel and couldn't reschedule as it was our last day(he offered to reschedule for the following evening). I got a confirmation of the cancellation and refund within minutes. I offered to have him keep the deposit due to feeling badly and he refused to accept. If we are back in town we will try again.

Excellent Cruise

Our sailing trip with Captain Dave was the best part of our trip to Barcelona! We went on a sunset cruise and the weather was perfect. Dave was very accommodating with our plans and responded quickly to emails related to our trip. He even gave us an excellent suggestion for a great seafood dinner. He was a most excellent host! If you’re in Barcelona you should take a cruise with Dave!

Wow! Definite recommendation

These guys were super helpful and flexible. We had to move trip a couple of times and they really accommodated us. Price was good considering everything we had and the food/ drink package for extra 10 Euros is worth it. We also brought some drinks ourselves. Skipper let us sail when we wanted, there was music (although a Bluetooth connection to our devices would be a good addition), there was sun, there was beer, it was a great way to spend 3 hours of sunset!
