At Nelo USA, we believe in the transformative, positive, community building power of sport. We believe in the ideals and philosophy of Olympism – in “blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles in the spirit of friendship and fair play”.
Nelo is proudly Portuguese; extending this nation’s centuries-long expertise in boat building. From the Caravel sailing ships that dominated long voyages in the 15th – 17th century to current day Olympic Champions, the Portuguese have been designing innovative world class boats for centuries. The Nina and Pinta which were sailed by Christopher Columbus, were caravel ships!
