Senior Sailing


Marina Parque das Nações aims  to make Sailing available to everyone through its  social solidarity projects, such as Accessible  Sailing (Vela para Todos) and Senior Sailing (vela +). Marina Parque das Nações is present  in this event organised by Seawoman, included in the  National Program of Sports for Everyone.

This event named Vela+Cultura will be held  on June 8th (Day of the Oceans) at Marina Parque das Nações and it will be open to anyone with more than 55 years.

During this day we will also be celebrating the 10th of  June: Camões, Portugal and Communities’ Day (Dia de Camões, de Portugal e das Comunidades).

During  this open day the public may try out  for several activities such as: Sailing, outdoor classes, check up and workshops related with cultural nautical and environmental subjects.

This event is part of the Vela+ project that aims to stimulate the physical activity of senior population (55+ years old), using Sailing as a tool. It includes physical work outs, cognitive training, motor coordination & nautical training, as well as events that include cultural, sport and healthy lifestyle activities.
