This is an initiative that the Clube Naval da Horta intends to carry out, with the objective of providing better training conditions for all the young people of the Club, in a joint effort within the scope of the 75th anniversary. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f60OmjnNyuc

It is already next year, 2022, that the Clube Naval da Horta – CNH, will celebrate its 75th anniversary, considering that the Statutes that formalized this Nautical Club, date from September 26, 1947.

Over these years, the CNH has greatly increased its activity, currently having about 10 active sections, all of them with regular activity, such as apnea, whaling boats, canoeing, minisailboats, motor boating, swimming, sport fishing by boat and coast, cruising, light sailing, windsurfing and chess.

In parallel with these activities, the CNH also invests in Leisure Nautical Courses, having for this purpose a Nautical Sportsmen Training Center, duly approved by the DGRM - General Directorate of Natural Resources, Safety and Maritime Services (ex-IPTM) , with certification for training in different categories, namely Sailor, Local Patrão and Patrão de Costa.

From a perspective of promoting and projecting this Nautical Club across borders, CNH has participated in the organization of numerous national and international regattas of different classes, often taking on the organization of major nautical events.

There are no doubts, therefore, that the Clube Naval da Horta, is currently a Club that, due to its history, its members, the different association boards, its athletes, its technical staff and collaborators, is today strongly rooted in society Faial's civil and sporting area, making the connection between its people and the sea that surrounds us all, which makes this Club a unique case of reference at regional and national level.

However, the increase in activity seen in recent years implies an increased concern with regard to the conservation and modernization of our fleet, as well as the timely renewal of the material inherent to the different activities. This has been done, with great difficulty, based on the goodwill of some partners, sponsors and partners, simultaneously with the public funding possible in the present context.

In this context, and for the aforementioned purpose, the current Direction of Clube Naval da Horta, appeals to all those who have some availability and/or will, to consider giving a contribution, whatever the amount, to help us lead the good port this project and thus maintain and reinforce the equipment for the training of our young people.

Thank you for your generosity!
