Barcelona International Sailing Center (BISC) is an innovative concept in sports facilities, designed to meet the specific needs of water sports athletes taking part in high level competition, and for the young ones fighting to reach their goals. A reference among high performance centres, where athletes and teams from all over the world will find all the resources they need to make BISC their European training base.
BISC enjoys an enviable location, in terms of both its geographical surroundings and its accessibility.
Situated in the Parc Forum area, the centre combines the isolation and tranquillity required for pre-competition training with its proximity to the heart of Barcelona.
A KEY FACTOR
Barcelona enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate with pleasant temperatures and good weather all year round. A temperate climate that provides on average 300 days per year of good sailing conditions.
At sea, the variability of wind and wave conditions make the Barcelona coast a multipurpose regatta area – a characteristic which allows teams to train in all kinds of weather situations.
