Lisbon ISC

The Lisbon International Sailing Club provides sailing opportunities for people in the Lisbon and Cascais area. The “International” part of the Club’s name reflects its origins among a number of expatriate sailing enthusiasts who live and work in Portugal. But the club is for everyone with a love of sailing, including our many Portuguese members.

Current projects include:- operating a boat for members to cruise and race; a crewing register to introduce crew to boat owners; reciprocal membership arrangements with local sailing clubs; sailing and social events; and negotiating discounts on sailing activities and equipment.

If you are not already on our mailing list and would like to participate, please register your interest by sending your name and e-mail address to:
