In 1990, a team of sailing sailors founded the Chania Sailing Club with the aim of facilitating actions in sailing and training courses in Chania, Crete. The Club's boats are participating in races and championships with great achievements, while the training in the open sea is done by experienced trainers. Furthermore, the Club is proud of having led the establishment of the 'Rally of the Southern Aegean and the Cretan Sea'.
Since 2010 Neorio Moro houses the Sailing Club and is an imposing building located in the picturesque Old Harbor of Chania, a spot of great historical and at the same time aesthetical value at the eastern part of the harbour. Neorio Moro is the large stone shipyard structure with an arched facade, named by the Venetian Benedetto Moro, who was in charge in 1607 of the Great Arsenali construction in order to repair the venetian ships.
Neorio Moro is an emblematic building with cultural value and great view to the harbour's lighthouse and has become a centre of the modern cultural life of the city of Chania, as it offers many and varied cultural events and amusements. Apart from the lounge cafe and the restaurant that operates in the building, it often hosts artistic events such as art exhibitions and performances, musical presentations, installations, lectures, seminars and screenings.
