Brazil to Caribbean

Hi all,

we crossed the South Atlantic ocean from Cape Town to Ilha Grande, Brazil, where we are having the time of our life cruising around the green coast.

I'm starting to make the itinerary for the sail up to Trinidad and Tobago, planned around May. So far I have the following stops:

Rio de Janeiro
Cabo Frio
Buzios
Vitoria
Abrolhos
Porto Seguro
Santa Cruz
Santo Andre
Ilheus
Itacare
Camamu
Salvador
Barra de Sao Miguel
Maragogi
Santo Aleixo
Itamaraca
Cabedelo
Fernando
Fortaleza
Sao Luis
Ilhes do Salut
Trinidad

The goal is to make short legs when possible and see as much as we can of Brazil.

Is there any other place that I should stop (or avoid to stop)?

Any recommendation will be greatly appreciated.

Re: Brazil to Caribbean

Hi, I will sail the same route next year. If you mean Fernando de Noronha, itís a must.

However how was your sailing from CT north, did you stop in Namibia? And how was the leg to St. Helena and further to Ascension? I canít wait to go and I dare to hear from your experiences.

Can't comment south of Cabadelo/Jacare (which was great fun ) , but north from there has a great current, best day was 70Nm from current alone. With sailing so good I did Isle De Salut in one hit from Jacare.
Suriname worth a look IMHO, up the river to Domburg then 4 days up to Tobago.

Go past Domburg to Waterland Marina and Resort. Really great place and people. Domburg was really disappointing and so were the people at the "yacht club"

You have to stop in Namibia, it's beautiful. If you are interested in learning more about the crossing, go to https://sailingoroboro.com/https://sailingoroboro.com/

You will also find an excerpt of my logbook here: https://sailingoroboro.com/2019/02/1...tlantic-ocean/

And yes, Fernando de Noronha is a must.
