Membership & Fees

How to join the club

We are a club of sailing enthusiasts and do not offer training or classes. We do, however, encourage all our members to learn and practice their skills when sailing with us.

If you are interested in becoming a member please join our mailing list

We don’t require any specific qualifications for sailing, except for a passion for this sport. If you have previous experience, that is great. We are always on the lookout for certified skippers (EU, RYA License, or Portuguese equivalent) to join the club. Reach out to us if you have that license, and let’s talk!

Members with active standing, get access to their own website accounts and can make bookings for sailing and other events. Members pay an annual fee and a per sail cost. See Sailing Fees below for details.

Important Update: As of June 2020, we are not offering guest or trial sails to non-members due to various restrictions in Portugal with the ongoing COVID pandemic. We may open our sails to non-members as this situation improves. Check our Facebook page for updates.
