The Barcelona Maritime Museum is running a varied program of leisure activities for all the family, aimed at arousing the curiosity, respect and appreciation for maritime culture.
This exhibition takes us back to the period between the 18th and 20th centuries to explore the commercial, experiential and technological revolution that Catalonia went through during that time. From the development of commerce throughout the Mediterranean to expanding into transoceanic trade, from sailing ships to steam power, this voyage relates how Catalan navigation opened itself up to new worlds both economically and socially.
Prepare to set sail. Well, to at least imagine yourself setting sail on one of the magnificent vessels on display at this year's Barcelona Boat Show. This will be the 58th edition for this event that sees the city's Port Vell fill up with the latest yachts, speedboats and catamarans for potential buyers to peruse, and the interested to ogle.
All the principal makers of sporting and leisure boats are represented, with hundreds of gleaming crafts on show, alongside numerous stands where you can try the latest technological advances in the sector along with the newest must-have accessories and equipment. You can also sample a variety of water sports, including paddle surf, kayak and canoeing, all at the Fun Beach area.
The profile of this three-pronged sporting event is definitely on the up; it's now part of both the Olympics and the Paralympics, and athletes such as the British Brownlee brothers have raised audience interest in the swimming, cycling and running challenge. It's also becoming popular among amateurs looking for a more varied exercise endeavour than that offered by just sticking to one sport. Unsurprisingly, then, the Barcelona Triathlon attracts thousands of competitors each year to its beachfront setting.
With three distances available, participants can choose between supersprint, sprint and Olympic and take part either as individuals, in pairs (where the two complete the course together) or as a relay team (with two or three members sharing the effort). As well as the sporting action, the day before the competition the Triexpo show is held, a place to find the latest in triathlon trends and accessories, making it ideal for stocking up on new kit and meeting some of the other people taking part.
