During 2h30 you will have the opportunity to learn, experiment and train basic knowledge on sailing in a modern racing boat. It will be an individual class in which the Skipper will have his attention fully focused on your learning. Various maneuvers and functions will be presented along the magnificent scenery that is the Douro River and the Atlantic Ocean. This is a private experience where you'll have the boat only for you and for your travel mate, if you book for 2 people. It's never too late to start and Porto is surely the ideal place with great all year round conditions to perhaps embrace a new passion: sailing!
Sailing, more than a sport, is a passion and a way of life. My life has been dedicated to this passion that so many unforgettable moments has given me. With several relevant national and international results, I feel that this knowledge and passion can and should be shared with those who visit us. It is not too soon or too late to embark on this activity that provides both tranquility and peace as well as strong emotions and adrenaline.
