Sports docks in commercial ports have provided services using areas that could not be used for conventional exploitation due to their shallow depth. Since their creation, ports in western islands provide a great service for sailing enthusiasts. The exceptional geographic location of the Canary Islands between continents means a port of call for many sports boats before crossing the Atlantic.
In this respect, sports docks in these ports record almost 100% occupation between September and December, date on which the transoceanic races are held, which also serve as home ports for between 30% and 50% of boats moored.
