Vilanova Grand Marina, just a short 20-minute drive from Barcelona, is a favourite winter berth location for the superyacht industry.  Throughout the winter months, the marina takes expert care of its crew with special events, professional development opportunities, and local excursions, and this winter is no different. This is one of the aspects that VGM’s director, Ignacio Erroz says sets them apart.  “The crew are here for the entire winter and we do a lot of things to create a family atmosphere.  We have several events that have become yearly traditions.  It allows them to get to know other local crew, share resources, stories and really creates a great atmosphere here in the winter.”  

For its fourth edition of the Vilanova Crew Ski Weekend, the team is off to Baqueria Beret, one of best-known ski resorts in the Pyrenees, just a few hours from Barcelona.  “We have a rich local territory here with a lot of biking and hiking trails and are lucky to have the Pyrenees in our backyard,” Ignazio adds.

From February 3rd to the 5th, captains and crew will enjoy a weekend of skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and for sure enjoy some of the great local food and drink in one of the most beautiful resorts in the area. A great few days to let off some steam, it also provides an opportunity for crew to get to meet other crew in the area and to network with some of the local sponsors.  BWA Yachting will sponsor a dinner at Vall d’Aran, a typical local eatery with YCV Yacht Chandlery offering a raffle price for another mountain getaway weekend to one lucky crew member.  The VGM team will all be there coordinating the entire event with home base being at the Baquiera, one of the best-known hotels in the area.
