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

Fantastic evening

We went on a sunset cruise with Dave (who is lovely) and had a great time. I enjoyed the sunshine and sunset while watching the coastline fade away and my boyfriend got to do some sailing, so everyone was happy!

Lovely morning on the sea

A group of 5 of us spent a lovely 3.5 hours on the water. Dave was really friendly and welcoming, made us feel safe and let us bring food and drink aboard. The wind was very low that morning so we spent some time jumping off the boat and swimming. The whole experience was so much more characterful than most other boat trips I've been on. HIGHLY recommended.

Sail or Chill on a Classic Yacht in Barcelona

It was a fab afternoon out with skipper Dave, who let the two of us help sail when we wanted, taught us a bit, and then we chatted and chilled when we wanted. And the yacht is classic old school! And at a fair price as well, esp. if we had more people. Just do it ...

A perfect morning on board Gemini!

We had a great time on board Gemini and Dave was a welcoming skipper. It's a perfect way to see the Barcelonian coast and to go for a swim in the very warm, deep, blue Med and sunbathe on deck away from the masses! Take drinks and snacks to enjoy while peacefully sailing.

Charming Boat with a friendly skipper

I thoroughly a 3 hour cruise with Captain Dave on board Gemini. The boat oozes charm and is really interesting in its setup. As someone who only recently started sailing, i had an amazing time chatting with Captain Dave. Even thiugh the wind was very light, i had a great time. Highly recommended

Didn't Make The Sail, But Still 5 Stars

Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip the same day because two in our party had a medical emergency and went home. Dave was incredibly easy to work with and responsive and gave us our deposit back without issue. We really appreciated it. We were very bummed to miss the boat trip, but if we are ever in Barcelona again we definitely will put it at the top of the list. Thank you very much again, Dave.
