Boats participating in Sailing to Barcelona will be moored at Port Vell - Barcelona's main harbour next to the city's heart. The Port Forum - the marina next to the Congress Centre - is available as a secondary mooring spot for specific occasions, such as the 5 October parade.

Participating boats are recommended to arrive at Port Vell at the latest by 3 October (mooring spots will be available as of 1 October).

Final allocation of the mooring spot will be decided by IUCN, based on availability of spots and the type of boat.
