BBDouro Nautical Experiences Junior Sailing Academy

The BBDouro Nautical Experiences Junior Sailing Academy and Sailing Camps are projects that we have been developing since the first day of our history. They started from Diogo Barros’ (CEO) conviction that it was necessary to change the way sailing was introduced to children in Portugal.

This is how a program was born, aimed at children and young people, which promotes learning to sail boats in a healthy and comfortable environment. The main goal is to instill a love for sailing and the sea and to let each one experience it in their own way, whether for leisure, competition or as a possible profession.

A vision that has been realized for 12 years with the help of instructors who have passed on, and continue to pass on, a love and passion for this sport of ours to the hundreds of students we have received.

This Children’s Day, bring the children in your life to fall in love with this sport, just like us!
