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

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.

Great dip in the Mediterranean

I booked this classic sailing trip with Dave for our honeymoon back in the summer 2015. I promised Dave to give him a 5-stars, comments and recommendations so here it is.

Great captain, great boat!

The boat Gemini is gorgeous and well-maintained by its captain, who is a knowledgeable seaman and all around fun guy. We went out for a relaxing day tooling around and enjoyed some snacks, cava, and conversation while just relaxing with great views and a peaceful breeze blowing us along. Dave can educate you on the finer points of sailing or just be a good companion while you're out for the day. I drop him a line every time I'm passing through Barcelona to go for a sail.

Highlight of our trip

We really enjoyed sailing with Dave. We spent 10 days in Barcelona and sailing was our break from sightseeing, which turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Would definitely go back. First time on the Mediterranean, it was beautiful and relaxing. Dave was a great host.

Gorgeous chill afternoon sail!

If you want to spend some time relaxing on the water, this is the sailing excursion to choose. Skipper Dave was kind and helpful, but he really left you alone to relax as you sail the beautiful sea. The Gemini is a beautiful boat. Can't go wrong with this trip.

Sunset cruise

Our group of 7 took the sunset cruise with our skipper Stefan. We had a very enjoyable experience, even though the majority of us suffered from sea sickness! We were able to bring our own food, drink and even music via the bluetooth facility provided. The price of this trip compared very favourably with others and this is another reason why I would recommend this experience.
