Firstly wanted to say hello - this is my first post here on this forum.
My wife and I are in the last stages of prep for our circumnav. We have just purchased a Trisbal 42 (Aluminum Sloop) in Cape Town
As most of you know we need to get her out of there before the weather
gets too bad so we are taking her across to Brazil
in March to leave her for a bit. We were going to leave her until June but now it looks like we have a little first mate coming our way so we wanted to leave it until December to give us a couple months to adapt before jumping on the boat...
...anyway, we are looking at the Bahia
area and have read both the relevant cruising guides
and Noonsite about the marinas
in the area. I was hoping that some of you might have personal experience iwth the marinas
there and know which ones were more appropriate in terms of safety
and cost for leaving a vessel for a long period.
The questions about cruising with a little one will come later...
thanks in advance
