Introduction sailing course in Barcelona
This year, Barcelonasail provides a special sailing introduction for children between 12 and 18 year.
During the sailing introduction the children will get a thorough introduction to sailing, learn to appreciate the ocean environment and improve their English.
We sail with only 5 children on a boat, this way the children can really be active the whole-time.
We are committed to sharing our love for the sea, make the children aware how they contribute to a cleaner ocean through plastic program and improve English communication.
