Re: Planing Sail to Brazil

Hunters are build mostly for coastal cruising. You take that mass production boat and start bashing it against the wind and current, either one of you would give up very quickly. You'll be OK with it to sail in prevailing trade winds, but taking it from Texas to Brazil no matter which way you'll go will be very risky

If you check the important stuff on the boat (rudder, rigging, sails, engine etc.) it should be up to the trip, providing you don't push it too hard (like you would going to windward and against current in your planned route). Take the offshore route and enjoy the sailing. It'll be a lot safer (you won't have to deal with all the crunchy bits along the coast). If you don't think you have enough experience, try to get someone with experience to join you for the trip.

Just curious... What are you going to do with the boat in Brazil after you arrive? Have you checked the regulations concerning how long the boat can stay in Brazil?

Re: Planing Sail to Brazil

What ever route you take, what ever boat you will be using, we will be interested in your adventure. When you in Brazil for a longer period, I think many of us will be interested how you dealed with the paperwork. If you need help in the Sao Luis Ma area shoot me a message.

You are allowed 3 months plus 3 months on renewal.
The 100% duty is only if you want to import into Brazil, but the actual costs is much higher due to all the paperwork, surveys, measurements and documents you need.

This can easily be done - on a trawler with a big fuel tank. On a sailboat, it will be very hard on your teeth.

I hope you have your time expectations correct - you'll need to allow 3-6 months for this trip. The sail from the Canaries to Natal took me 31 days on a 26 LWL (30 footer), on yours 27 LWL it will be the same or a bit faster - plan on sailing 100 miles per day average.

If you don't care about the time, leave in December for the Bahamas, then optional to Bermuda in May and cross over to the Cape Verdes. This is the safe route for a sailboat and I'll bet its quicker that the one you proposed hugging the coast.

I have done the trip from S to N twice. It is crazy to do it N to S, particularly given your choice of boat.

Re: Planing Sail to Brazil

This has to be a troll thread? You plan on rounding Cape Horn on an old 33' Hunter?

The forum has unanimously told you the route you need to take if you want to do this trip. That in forum terms is quite unusual. I suggest you take this advice given in this thread, or stop the nonsense and stick to coastal sailing around the Gulf.

By the way are you the Smartmanjp and 62yr old vet who lost 450 bitcoins?

I think you've been given the route advice you need. Go and read the James Baldwin 3-part article on his trip to Brazil from the US. It's basically the best route.

Not to sound too harsh, but if you have to ask about the route, are you sure you have enough experience for this trip? It's a long way to Brazil...

Numa boa, não vai ser fácil legalizar seu barco no Brasil quando você chegar, mesmo com seu irmão no governo. Isso involve a marinha e também a Receita Federal. Fora isso, é ilegal. O país inteiro está lutando para acabar com a corrupção no governo e você quer "dar um jeito" com seu veleiro... triste.
