1968 – 2018 Half a century being a Club

Club Nàutic l’Escala: past, present and future of a friends club

Saturdays, Sundays and summer holidays are ideal days to spend on the sea.  Sailing by motorboat or yacht with your friends, family or alone, we get to the Club, get the boat ready and go out to sea. It’s easy and it may seem trivial, but for it to happen that way, there is a whole story behind it: a whole group of people who have worked day to day since the idea of founding the Club Nàutic at La Clota was conceived.

That was the beginning of the article published by the Club magazine in 2008, which commemorated the Club’s 40th anniversary, 10 years ago now. This year the Club is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its foundation on 24th May 1968, when a ‘group of friends’, as described by Pere Solés and Abel Palau, two founding partners, got together to create the name of what today is called the Club Nàutic l’Escala.

Many things have happened since then; the facilities have been modernised, sporting events have been organised and above all, personal experiences in the world of sailing have been created, which has been the raison d’être of the Club throughout all these years.

So, we are giving you a preview of the planned activities and agenda to celebrate our anniversary.  We hope that you will join us:

  • In order to keep you up to date with what is being organised, a space will be allocated on the Club’s website which will allow you to follow the news and events of the 50th anniversary of the Club. Communication will also be strengthened via the usual forms of communication, the newsletter and social networks – February 2018.
  • The Clubs corporate image will be updated, as will its stickers, clothes, flags and merchandising available to members at the Club offices – April 2018. 
  • The Club’s 50th anniversary sporting event will be organised – Children’s Sailing Championship of Catalonia – April 2018.
  • Printing and presentation of the 50th anniversary book - June 2018
  • Club Open Day with a diary full of sporting and social activities  - June 2018.
  • Members Day 2018 – main event for Club members with a special format – August 2018
  • The sailing and fishing events will be promoted with a special edition of the Barracuda Tour, the fishing competition and the lateen sailing meeting – throughout 2018
