#WESTAYCONNECTED was born from the union of several companies with the aim of helping foundations and associations that allocate aid to children at risk due to the lack of resources to access a decent education during the period of uncertainty generated by Covid-19.
To make your donation to the campaign, all you have to do is go to www.westayconnected.es and buy your desired T-shirts and masks for adults and children. How many more the better!
Did you know that sailing has been a water sport since the 17th century when King Charles II of England started sailing for pleasure on his first royal yacht, the ‘Mary’?
Since then sailing has always been present in many world nautical competitions. At RocRoi Vilanova we have four sailboat models according to capacity and speed: the Lúdic sailboats, the Topaz sailboats, the Taz sailboats and the Magno sailboat. Continue reading →
If you’ve never been on the river, it’s hard to know what to expect from a whitewater rafting trip. Your friends will try to convince you to go telling you that it’s super fun or “tough,” but they will rarely explain why they feel that way.
Whitewater rafting may seem like a terrifying experience at first to some, but beyond the fear and exaggeration of adrenaline, it is a truly exciting experience. Next, we will explain some points that you can expect from your first rafting descent:
After 46 days of confinement, our instructors have all managed to stay in shape. Do you want to know how RocRoi’s rafting instructors, kayak guides or canoes do their training at home?
It is important for rafting instructors to train the upper trunk, since the main part of the body that dominates the sport of rafting includes the arms, chest and back. Therefore, it is important to perform exercises such as push-ups, pull-ups, bench press with legume packs, shoulders and rowing with milk bricks, crunches, triceps and biceps with dumbbells.
Equally so for kayak or canoe guides, they prioritize the upper trunk over the lower trunk. But in no case, we must not forget that the lower trunk is equal or more important to maintain physical shape. That’s why some of our instructors practice weighted squats, one-leg hamstrings, weighted one-leg squats, or the calf.

Sea kayaking is a sport that is practiced in open or closed waters such as the Mediterranean Sea or lakes.
The origin of sea kayaking can be found more than 5,000 years ago in Alaska, Canada and Greenland. When some hunters used it to hunt, fish, transport game produce, and go on extensive excursions in search of prey.
Hello fathers and mothers who have been locked up at home for 26 days with your little ones, we want to help you to better spend the remaining time of confinement. And that’s why, today we give you some origami or origami ideas for kids that are easy and fun, to play and not stop!
In this post we will explain what are the secrets of making a correct rafting descent, how to place the paddle at all times and how to execute the descent in the safest possible way.
On the day of your rafting descent reservation, it is necessary that you all go to the RocRoi rafting base just a couple of kilometers from the town of Llavorsí (between Llavorsí and Rialp), where the instructors will give you all the complete equipment to start the rafting experience.
The activity begins when we are already well equipped from the RocRoi base: wetsuits, wetsuits, helmet and life jacket; and we go to the bus or in the vans, which will take us to the starting point of the activity.
