Join the IE Sailing Club for the Splash weekend, an event specially dedicated to all of us that love being in the water!! If you tought it was not possible to sail in Madrid, you were wrong. :)! 

Location: El Burguillo Reservoir

The El Burguillo Reservoir is located along the Alberche river in the province of ÁvilaSpain, between the municipalities of El Tiemblo and El Barraco.

It was inaugurated in 1913 and is the first/highest reservoir along the Alberche river. The water is mostly used for agricultural purposes and to generate electricity. It is managed by the Confederación Hidrográfica del Tajo, which also allows recreational activities in the reservoir, such as bathing, sailing and rowing.
