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."

Classic Sailing Barcelona Yacht Charter

An excellent afternoons sail with Dave off the coast of Barcelona. It was an absolute joy and would thoroughly recommend it whether you are experienced or not. It was lovely to leave the hot city behind and have the sea breeze on your face.

You want to go sailing? Classic Sail Barcelona is the perfect provider!!

I wanted to surprise my fiancée for her birthday - the booking of Gemini with Skipper Dave was the perfect gift and an incredible experience. We took the Sunset Tour which was a picture perfect trip with blue sea, a romantic sunset and a refreshing swimming stop. Gemini is a beautiful and very well maintained sailing boat, with a nice history (built in 1947). Skipper Dave couldn't have been a nicer host with a friendly smile and loads of cool insights into sailing.

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.

Great Host, Great Boat, Great Time!

We are a family of five (Mother, Father, Son-19yrs, Son-13yrs, Son-6yrs) and chose for the morning sail with Skipper Dave. The reservation was simply done online, meet up instructions were clear and easy, and payment was as transparent and easy. We would absolutely recommend this as a great experience in Barcelona for any family. Thank you Dave!

Fantastic Experience

Highly recommended for a group of friends/family. 3 hours was a perfect amount of time to cruise the harbour and the captain really gave us space so it felt like our own boat. Much preferred to the large catamaran tours with 50+ people

Very nice skipper!

The sign-up and transaction online were very smooth. We had to cut our sea promenade short as our son got seasick (first time sailing) due to very choppy waves, but through it Dave proved to be a wonderful skipper, very careful, riding the waves as smoothly as possible, and seems a lovely man. Will try it again in the future, with more clement weather! Thank you Dave!
