Permission to Come Aboard - from Brazil

I thank you by receiving me.

Only I offer my excuses for not speaking and writting correctly in English, as my birth language is brazilian portuguese.

I am sure that I'll learn much about sailboats and cruising in this forum whith you. I´m from São Paulo, Brazil, but living by many years in a small coastal city named Ubatuba.

My boat is 37 feet , the Printemps, that is a copy of the O´Day 37, and was build in Brasil by he american Bangor Punta Corporation in 1986 . Is a sloop, but I pretend transform her in a cutter.

I am a commodore of a small yacht club, in wich, unhapilly, most boats are motorboats. But sailing, and even diving, has been for the last 60 years my only interest.

Good winds and clear sky for everyone,

Magalhães.

Bem-vindo amigo.
Brazil has a long nautical history that you are helping to keep alive and going.
I am also a fan of Bossa and your Arts and Culture Minister: Gilberto Gil.

Welcome aboard, from a power cruiser. I worked ( selling equipment) with the Sugar industry all over Brazil for many years, a beautiful country with wonderful people.
With a name like Magalhaes you can't go wrong here.
Steve

Ubatuba is gorgeous, as is all of Brazil. I spent six weeks in Brazil visiting my sister and driving around. She had a beach house in Ubatuba and we stayed several days.
Welcome to the forum.

Smile Thanks for the welcome.

Thank you all for the nice messages whem I joined your forum. I already take part in three foruns in Brasil, but the operating way is different, so I´ll spend some time to learn how to participate.

Caleb D, Ok, and by my way I´m a fan of low american music. If I hve some vacabullary in english is the old american songs I had learn the lyrics in the old times. Some of 800 of them, haha.

Hud, I am also a moderator of two sailing foruns in Brasil, and joined a third, with a participation of about 1500 sailers (and dreamers, too). But considering our coastal line and wharm watters, the sailing is not as popular as it could be.

In spite of it, whe have good sailsmen, as Robert Scheidt from São Paulo, olimpic champion of Laser class and eight times gold medal of the world championship, now sucessfully sailing in the "Star" class in Europe and skipper of the italian "Luna Rossa".

I used to have a very good friend, Joerg Bruder, that was three times world champion of Finn class, and north-american champion of "Lightining" in past years. Unhappily, he died in a plane crash whem he was flying to disoutae his forth gold medal in Finn.

And, you perhaps hear about it, Torben Grael, from Niteroy, near Rio de Janeiro, was also olimpic gold medal of Star class, and last month he won, as skipper of a swedish boat, the Volvo Ocean Race.

We have several others sucessfull sailors of competition, but "my own people" is more to the side of cruising. Slow, easy-going, calm, peacefull cruising. Whith a sailboat, if possible, but even whith motor powered boat.

Lorenzo,
Ubatuba is, as you said, a kind of gorgeous, so I decided, whem I married, to leave the big city I was born and live here. But I have a modest, tiny house in a place named Saco do Ceu, in Ilha Grande, Angra dos Reis, about forty nautical miles from here. You can see it in Google Earth. That was really gorgeous. Wonderfull wiew, preserved nature and one of the best, more secure places for anchoring I knew. I would insert a photo here, if I knew how to do this, but I don't by now.

Amyr Klink, a former pupil of mine in skin diving, that is very famous in Brasil as a navigator and a writer, and use to explore frozen Antartic watters with is aluminum boat "Paraty II", said that Saco do Ceu is the more beautiful place he knew, and I agree.

Perhaps I know your sister that has a house here. It´s a small city, everybody knows everybody. And I hope you visit me, if you returns some day to these sides.

And, finally, to David and John L:

by this time, you already knew that what you kindly told about my english is not completelly true, haha ...

But the important is that you, with some complacency, could understand what I'm trying to say .

Best winds,
Magalhães

Bem-vindo no forum amigao

Nice foto! I visited ilha grande myself, and I can testify that it is obscenely beautiful. unfortunately I was there as a dirt-dweller/tourist.. Btw there's another member from Ubatuba (sinbad7) on the forum.

I'm on my way, what a beautiful photograph. My sister lives in Sao Paulo, she was a professor of anthropology and lived and worked with Brazil's tribes in the northeast Amazon and is now retired. She's lots of fun and very interesting.
To those on the forum who have never been, Brazil is fabulous. If you're on an extended trip, put Brazil and the end of your itinerary, or you'll never leave.
Magalhaes, I will send you contact information in a PM.
