Every year the Port Vell attracts thousands of fans of the sea with the Barcelona International Boat Show, this year on from 10 to 14 October.
The fun beach area offers visitors a chance to try a light sailing boat, paddle surf, canoes and kayaks. The traditional sailing area features traditional wooden vessels, restoration displays and workshops on marine customs.
The second Barcelona Paddle Race is a chance to follow an open water canoeing event, setting off from the fair and finishing in the port in Badalona.
This year’s event also has a section for fans of initiation sailing, competition sailing and ocean sailing.
The fair is on at the Moll de la Fusta and Moll d’Espanya wharfs.
