Sailing

Comunitat Valenciana

Valencia hosted the America’s Cup and and Alicante was the start port of the Volvo Ocean Race.  What else should be said about the wind regime of the more than 600km of coast line of the Region of Valencia?

It’s difficult to imagine a sailing destination that is adapted to learning and enjoying sailing better than the Region of Valencia. The wind increases in strength as the sun rises and also drops away with it, thus offering us days of between 4 and 6 hours of sailing under optimal conditions. Having always good winds, you just have to choose your trip, depending on your skill level or what you decide. The Region is an optimal sailing area for fully enjoying your “regatta mode”, trimming sails, tacking or gybing at the slightest hint of windshift.

If you are looking forward to disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of your daily routine, then we suggest you set your course head to one of our natural parks on the coast, to find refuge among Mediterranean landscapes and deserted coves. Your route will be unforgettable if you are fortunate enough to sail alongside dolphins; the experience will then become even more exciting, beyond any imaginable description.

Sailing is an ideal experience to share with your family and friends. In the Region of Valencia, children can take an extensive range of initiation courses where to learn about the adventure of life at sea. Small-boat sailing will pique their curiosity about the marine environment and instil values as effort, teamwork and the importance of caring for the environment.

Breathe fresh air while listening to the rushing of the waves and the warm sigh of the wind. Enjoy your sailing, enjoy the Region of Valencia:
