Full description
Departing from the convenient meeting point in Douro Marina, you'll have a pure sailing experience on a race boat while you can watch the magnificent views over Porto and Gaia river areas. Experience the unique feeling of using only the wind to move the boat and the adrenaline of moving on the water.   You can trim the sails, drive the boat, and take care of the functions on board or you can just relax and let the skipper do everything. Depending on the wind conditions, you can have a more extreme experience or you can ask the skipper to slow down and take things more smoothly.

    Great skipper with lot of experience in sailing. His instructions while sailing were very clear. As a complete beginner, it was great to experience the whole process of getting the sails up - down and basic sailing maneuver like jibing. We first went towards porto old town and then into the ocean. The wind was 35 knots and the ocean had big waves but the skipper was really great in his maneuver and judgement.

    Real sailing experience on a nice smaller and more fun sail boat, rather than on a fancy big boat. Very nice and experienced skipper.

    The sailing experience is the best way to experience the River. All those motor boats can’t compare to sailing. Pipo our guide was the nicest!
