The Sailing Club at Classic Sail Barcelona


12 Apr 2016 | Last update: 28 Jun 2019

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

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.

Pretty sail in Barcelona

We enjoy our chartered sail trip. Very flexible with timing as we asked to leave earlier then booked and was very accommodating. It rained the last 20 minutes of the trip which kind of made it fun! Very nice experience

A Mediterranean Adventure

Our family of four had a wonderful adventure with Captain Dave on the last day of our Barcelona vacation. Dave was very responsive through our email communications to book the trip. The directions to the Gemini were easy to follow and she was as described – well maintained with much character. Captain Dave was very personable but not intrusive – he patiently answered all our questions. We spent over three hours enjoying the beautiful Barcelona skyline. He even stopped and anchored so our kids could swim in the Mediterranean. We would highly recommend Classic Sailing and hope that we have the opportunity to sail on the Gemini someday again.

A wonderful evening with Captain Dave

Captain Dave and his boat Gemini were the perfect escape from the urban Barcelona. We booked an afternoon sail however he contacted us and advised we go a bit later to enjoy the sunset. It was beautiful. My love and I had the boat to ourselves and Captain Dave was a perfect balance of accommodating and knowledgeable, while at the same time leaving us to ourselves so we could soak in the experience.
