Classic sailing


The sailing school of the Club Nautique de Claouey has been the cradle of classic sailing since 1997. Allow yourself to be seduced by a day’s sailing on a typical Bassin boat visiting the Ile aux Oiseaux and the cabanes tchanquées.

Sailing Pinasses

The Pinasse, traditionally a sailing boat, was used for fishing and working the oyster beds. Nowadays, sailing a Pinasse on the Bassin d’Arcachon guarantees an original experience in the purest tradition of the Bassin.

The sailing ferry (Barque) l’Escalumade

The Club Nautique de Claouey  is a partner in the Association “L’Escalumade”. Constructed in 2000 at the initiative of the mairie of Lège and the sailing school of the Club Nautique de Claouey, the “Escalumade” was a feat of local naval building with sixth formers, schoolchildren, club members and volunteers all lending a hand, that has been widely emulated.

Sailing aboard the l’Escalumade

Alone, as a couple or with your family come and steer and
manoeuvre  the l’Escalumade in total security with a professional, certified by the state.

Become a volunteer with the Association

The Association “L’Escalumade”, partner of the Club Nautique de Claouey , welcomes with pleasure volunteers to promote the continued use of the sailing ferry (Barque) more widely.
