Locations & Ports:
Rio de Janeiro / Costa Verde / Angra dos Reis
Sea & Coast:
To the south from Rio de Janeiro, one of the most beautiful stripes of the 8 thousand km long Brazilian coast is located. The 1700 m high mountains of Serra do Mar reach the sea here and outline the magnificent bays with innumerable small and large, inhabited and uninhabited islands. In the Gulf of Angra dos Reis, various tropic islands with rich Flora and Fauna are scattered and wait to be explored. Yacht charter and sailing in Brazil belong to leisure activities that are restricted for a little portion of the people – therefore there is no need to fight for the best anchor spots already in the afternon. The idyllic “Ilha Grande”, which lies only 100 km away from Rio de Janeiro and hardly twelve sea miles away from the continent, covers about 200 square km and has only a few thousand inhabitants. A third part of its territory is a nature reserve. Its more than 100 beaches and bays are largely free from mass tourist attacks and week-end holiday-makers. Each kind of car and bus traffic is forbidden there. If you appreciate quite and peaceful relaxation on a beach, this is a right place for you! Even the centre of the town Parati with protected monuments is closed for cars. Parati belongs to the most beautiful colonial towns of Brazil. Once this town became rich through its port and the shipment of gold and coffee. Now tourism is its primary source of income.
Winds & Weather:
The air temperatures are usually quite pleasant in spring (September to November) and autumn (April and May). These are the best periods for a travel. In summer (December to March) the temperatures can reach over 40 deg. C; often short and strong tropical rains fall. The water temperatures reach about 17 deg. C in winter and about 28 deg. C in summer. The wind directions mainly depend on the proportion of land and sea. During the day, a wind of about 4 Bft. blows from the land. In the evening the wind direction changes.
