Sailing Routes

Sailing is a sport that’s very different from conventional sports, full of emotion and contact with nature, but equally safe.

To begin the journey to the technical side of this sport, you should know that races are called regatas and that they last between 30 and 75 minutes, depending on the classes. Classes is the term used to define the type of boat that is used.

Cascais Bay

The practice of sailing is more favorable in calmer waters, so Cascais Bay is the perfect place to go. The weather in Cascais is an oceanic climate with hot summers and relatively mild winters where the temperature rarely falls below 10 degrees centigrade.

For those wishing to experience the feeling of sailing in the wind and waves, there are various ways to do it, either individually or in groups.

Walks along the Estoril Coast

In a boat ride on the traditional “Estou para Ver“, an ancient salt galleon from the early twentieth century, property of the municipality of Cascais, participants have the chance to learn the history of the vessel, the evolution of the Galleon of Salt, technical details of the boat, and may participate in the maneuvers of the vessel if requested.

On another vessel, the Leão Holandês, the tour can be complemented by stories of pirates, or mystery activities. 
With half or a full day of sailing with an experienced skipper on board, the Clube Naval de Cascais and several companies in the region organize boat baptisms and interactive experiences tailored to each client’s needs, allowing you to discover all the emotions of sailing while enjoying a fantastic view.
