En 2004 nace el Primer y Único Centro Náutico Público de Chile, Puerto Deportivo Valparaiso. Durante nuestros 13 años de vida hemos dado acceso al mar y las actividades náuticas, especialmente la navegación vela, a la comunidad de Valparaíso. Desde nuestra fundación nuestra misión ha sido la Náutica para Todos, por lo que encontrar en Australia a Hansa Sailing cuya misión es la misma que nosotros, Sailing for Everyone, nos inspiró a contactarlos y viajar a Australia a conocer los veleros inclusivos Hansa Sailing y su Fundación Sailing for Everyone. Gracias a ese viaje hemos comenzado a materializar nuestro sueño de que la náutica sea 100% para todos sin importar condición social, edad, sexo o capacidades físicas. Para nosotros es un gran orgullo ser los Distribuidores de Hansa Sailing para Chile y Sudamérica (excepto Brasil) dado que con ellos Chile podrá aumentar considerablemente la cantidad de nuevos navegantes al aprender a navegar en un velero muy seguro, fácil de navegar, involcable y diseñado bajo el concepto de Diseño Universal o Diseño Inclusivo. Los esperamos en Puerto Deportivo para conozcan estos espectaculares veleros inclusivos Hansa y sean parte de la gran familia Hansa Sailing.
In 2004, the First and Only Public Nautical Center of Chile was born, Puerto Deportivo Valparaiso. During our 13 years of life we have given access to the sea and nautical activities, especially sailing, to the community of Valparaíso. Since our foundation our mission has been Nautical for All, so finding Hansa Sailing in Australia whose mission is the same as us, Sailing for Everyone, inspired us to contact them and travel to Australia to meet the inclusive Hansa Sailing sailboats and their Sailing for Everyone Foundation.
Thanks to that trip, we have begun to realise our dream that sailing is 100% for everyone regardless of social status, age, sex or physical abilities. For us it is a great pride to be the Hansa Sailing Distributors for Chile and South America (except Brazil) since with them Chile will be able to considerably increase the amount of new navigators by learning to sail in a very safe, easy to navigate, untouchable and designed sailboat under the concept of Universal Design or Inclusive Design. We wait for you in Puerto Deportivo to get to know these spectacular Hansa inclusive sailboats and be part of the great Hansa Sailing family.
