Day Sailing from Barcelona

We meet every weekend to sail a fantastic old wooden racing yacht. Everyone welcome, from beginners to old hands.

Full details at The Barcelona classic sailing club (Barcelona) - Meetup

I am also looking for someone to help with working on the paint and varnish of the boat. In return I offer free sailing lessons.

Hi Srinivasan,

Thanks for replying, but as you can see from my message, I am looking for volunteers who I will take sailing in return for a few hours work. I am not hiring employees.

Best regards.

Wish I had known about you month of Sept 2009. Would have jumped right in, had lots of spare time from a project at Vila Olympica.
so many projects--so little time !!

Hi David

Ive been living in Barcelona for 3-4 months and have been looking to get involved with some sailing. Im a complete beginner, with no previous sailing experience. I would be more than happy to help with some painting etc in exchange for some free lessons. Im teaching english here after working as a stonemason/landscape gardener back in the UK and am missing the practical work, so would be more than happy to help!

Take care, hope you had a great Christmas
