Llaguts de Vilanova

The Club Nàutic Vilanova and the Associació Esportiva Llaguts Confraria de Pescadors de Vilanova i la Geltrú have reached an agreement for the lease of two moorings. In this way, the Llaguts can standardize their situation within the Port of Vilanova. So far they occupied a space in the fishing port of the harbor, but it was necessary to find a more suitable place within the port area so as not to interfere with the professional activity of the fishermen. The Llaguts can be seen now from the Paseo Marítimo, as they are moored on a platform floating in the dock parallel to the promenade. You can contact the Llaguts by llagutsvilanova@gmail.com.

This organization currently has 105 members, of which seventy are voters and voters, that apart from the two weekly training sessions participate in eight sporting and competitive activities throughout the year. The Llaguts in recent years have proved to be a good promotional element of the city. This year the Llaguts helmet has opened the new image of the city's tourism brand. The llaguts are traditional boats on the Catalan coast. These are fishing vessels, which combine Latin sailing propulsion with the oar. Towards the eighties of the twentieth century, polyesters and standardized construction began to replace wood as the main subject, parallel changes to all maritime activity, results of new needs and adaptations to new techniques. Currently its use is completely sporty.
