Small boat sailing

The unique combination of winds and tide driven currents specific to this bay make it an incredible place for sport sailing and even better for beginners.

The Small Sailing Boats do not have the facilities for learning or practicing as other nautical sports, therefore “Sails & Shades”, Sail loft will offer all necessary resources: sailboat, instructor/monitor and learning in order to enjoy with fullness the freedom that is felt when moving on the water through the action of the wind.

Sailing is suitable for all ages and it can be a sport or a hobby for a lifetime. It is easy, fanny and helps to forge the character. In addition, it is an ecological activity respectful of the marine habitat, since does not pollute and does not need fuel.
