BBDOURO'S SAILING ACADEMY
Welcome to BBDouro’s Junior Academy, where every weekend on the Douro River we teach children aged 5 to 18 how to sail and foster their passion for the sport and the sea.
Lack of time and age are not obstacles to developing your love of sailing and the sea at BBDouro’s Adult Academy. With private and group lessons every weekend we dare you to come and try it.
Teaching and practicing sailing as no limits at BBDouro. Our disabled sailing program on the INCA Lusíadas ForALL boat is tailored to meet the individual needs and skill levels of each sailor.
BBDouro offers the greatest Summer and Easter camps in Vila Nova de Gaia and Porto. Children aged 5 to 15 years old will enjoy fun-filled weeks at sea, with wind, sun, and sailing.
Sailing lessons tailored to each sailor’s schedule and availability, whether they are learning with a friend or on their own.
The sailing academy for daring and for any sailor who wants to improve their foiling abilities. For those who dare to fly just above the water, we offer a variety of possibilities in private lessons or training camps.
“BBDouro's location means that there are always conditions for a great sailing lesson, whether on the river or at sea!”
