Since about forever, the Guadalquivir river is considered the main lifeline of Andalusia. His delta with once almost 100 km width was already serving as an important harbour for trade during the Roman times. 1498 Christopher Columbus started his third sea journey and 1519, Ferdinand Magellan started the first world-round sailing trip of the history from Guadalquivir.
Sanlucar is a place full of history and an ideal sailing area. Right behind the estuary mouth of Guadalquivir, the Doñana Natural Park starts. Behind a sand bank reaching from the estuary mouth of Rio Tinto until the estuary mouth of Guadalquivir, you can find one of the biggest natural reserves of Europe.
