All sailing, Catalan boats return to the sea

The trobade season begins at the end of May for sailing and eye-catching fun.

The Catalan boats, considered the true pioneers of the maritime heritage, with the arrival of good weather, will leave their main base. After a period of winter, they go through the nurturing phase, a key moment before returning to the sea. The most fundamental that she will return to the sea, it’s time to participate in all the different sailing trobades (Meetings) take place around most of the ports in the north and south of Catalonia.

Saved by a bunch of enthusiasts

But they almost disappeared when the fishermen equipped themselves with modern fishing boats, leaving them to crumble on the sand. Some even got burned. They owe their salvation to a group of traditional sailing enthusiasts who mobilized to rehabilitate and bring them back to the water. By creating the Roussillon Maritime Heritage Association Group (Gapamar), they have raised the awareness they have brought llaguts And Sardinal And revived the practice of this traditional sailing. 66 Marine Carpenters and the Paulilles Boat Management Workshop also participate in these safeguards. Today, this structure brings together several Catalan boat associations in the department. It has established a partnership with the Association of Traditional Sails of Southern Catalonia. So this summer, a squadron of boats from Roussillon and Jabbamar will participate in trobades From Calella de Palafrugell and Ametlla de Mar on the Ebro River. If gatherings are scheduled from June, some boats have already taken part in the Stopover in Sète, a highlight of traditional sailing.
