Real sailing in Barcelona

All weather is sailing weather

I've been thinking about this for a while now. Summer in Barcelona is a time of reliable perfect sailing weather. Every day, you get up in the morning, glance out the window, the sky is still blue, that's all you need to know. You hop on your boat and head out to beautiful, civilized conditions, a decent breeze, sunshine, a delightful swell, you can put your glass of champagne down on the deck and it'll still be there when you go looking for it. What else could a sailor possibly want?

Well, a real sailor might want some real weather. Just once in a while. One of the great pleasures of sailing is being out in the middle of weather. All kinds of weather.

There's no such thing as bad weather. Just bad clothes.

So, the idea is that when the forecast is bad, we'll hit the water! When the wind is howling, when the waves are breaking, when the rain is lashing down, when it's cold or through the night, we'll head out and suck the marrow from the bones of life. And when we come back, if we come back, well then, we'll have a story to tell.

If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, drop me a line and I'll set up a mailing list. When the forecast turns nasty, when the weather gets real, I'll send a message to the list and we'll get ourselves organised. It'll happen at short notice, and there'll only be 4 places on the boat. What say you?

"Those who go down to the sea in ships,
who do business on great waters,
they see the works of the Lord,
and His wonders in the deep.
For He commands and raises the stormy wind,
which lifts up the waves of the sea.
They mount up to the heavens,
they go down again to the depths;
their soul melts because of trouble.
They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,
and are at their wits' end."

Breathtaking!

This sailing trip 4-5 miles from the coast of the city was most probably the highlight of our trip.

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.

Relaxing 3 hours away from the buzz

A very lovely afternoon with skipper Stefan and a welcome getaway from the hot city.

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!

Wonderful moment

Spent the morning with my wife and kids on Dave's boat. First of all Dave is very professional and very friendly. He tells if you are interested, leaves you in peace if you want to nap, let's you drive if you want... he adapts to each individual perfectly.

Great Fun

4 of us booked the boat for 3 hours on a glorious Saturday afternoon. Dave was a great Skipper, letting us drink and play music while he took care of the sailing.
