Home to the ISAF world championships in 2007, Cascais has been the preferred destination for many sailors when it comes to sailing training camp preparations. Beside the Atlantic Ocean, on the northern shore of the Tagus estuary, the ancient fishing village of Cascais keeps a great sailing tradition alive. A recently constructed marina makes the town perfect for those who want to prepare for the upcoming competitions. The region has a mild climate, with calm seas and sandy beaches. Cascais Marina is fully equipped to welcome the growing number of sailors who visit Cascais to sharpen their sailing skills.
