The club’s prehistory began in 1965 when the Caixa de Crédit i Estalvi bank of the Official College of Physicians of Catalonia acquired some land near the beach owned by the future president of the club, Josep Cornudella Capdevila.
The El Balís Yacht Club’s corporate charter dates back to December 19, 1966. And thus the project began. The seed had been planted.
On January 20, 1967, the go-ahead was given for the incorporation of the club and its management board was chaired by Josep Cornudella Capdevila. The El Balís Yacht Club was officially born.
During the first years the club functioned more like a beach club than a yacht club, but the sport of sailing was part of its DNA and it organised the first Optimist regattas.
Teaching has also had a place since the very beginning, and although initially there was no official sailing school, the members of the club organised small sailing classes.
