Join this original and unique astronomical regatta called Stella Oceani. This edition is a Mediterranean crossing, with a port of origin and destination Barcelona, around the Balearic Islands with a one-day stop in Ibiza.


In it you compete to see which is the most accurate sailboat in calculating its position obtained with the sextant, as was done in the past, using the nautical almanac.


Learn to identify your geographical position taking into account only the height of the sun, the moon, the planets and the stars. We will observe the sunrise, meridian and sunset daily.


An unforgettable experience! We will wait for you!
