Brazil to Trinidad and Tobago

I need to speak with someone that did this passage.

I did it, lovely passage. 11 days Cabadelo - Isle de Salut, 2 days - Surinam then 4 days - Tobago. Nice current all the way, best was 70 free miles from the current. Think I left Brasil in October, couple years ago.

Is it better to stop at Cayenne or Suriname, to refuel?

Not sure about Cayenne as i didn't go in there, got couple hundred litres in Kourou but meant a long wobbly bike ride up to the filling station with jerry cans. Not cheap either. Surinam was a nicer place, though Isle Du DSalut were beautiful. Noonsite says fuel available up the river, I remember going past it but didn't get any.
Noonsite: Paramaribo

Domburg. domburg suriname - Google Maps


Domburg is the place to go for in Suriname, a few hours up the river. Lots of Dutch. Great food.

Where in Brasil are you?

Wow, that's a long way. Can't help much with further south i'm afraid. Bar talk was that the current split at Recife, setting north , north of Recife and south, south of it. But not sure how strong it is if you're coming up. But I'm a bit envious if you are on your boat, some of my fondest memories on the boat are from Brasil.
