Picture yourself sipping a glass of wine on a classic wooden sailboat, watching the sun set over Barcelona. You might think it’s a dream, but this can easily be made reality with Classic Sail by skipper Dave.
Skipper Dave is, first and foremost, a sailor. But he’s also a host. Dave welcomes guests aboard his historic wooden sailboat, Gemini, running outings from Port Olímpic. Built in 1947, Gemini is a vintage ocean racer of character, one of only 39 of this model ever built. Gemini was originally owned by an Irish WWII hero (and others) before Dave got ahold of her in England and sailed her down to Barcelona.
A sailing outing includes the private use of the entire deck, stunning city views and stop-offs for swimming. Pack some drinks, food and music (or ask Dave to supply it) and join the skipper on a Mediterranean cruise. Guests are invited to book a three-hour tour of up to seven people at either 2pm or 7pm any day of the week.
