Hi all,

Has anyone done this trip? Aiming to start early September in a 46ft sloop stopping off in Brazil at Fortaleza then Rio then somewhere (any suggestions?) on coast of Argentina. Have read Noonsite which didnt help too much and will be getting the necessary pilot and passage books.

Many thanks, Tony

Piriopolis (spelling) in Uruguay seems to be the preferred option in that area. Thats where I am heading for overhaul next austral winter.

Cheers

Frank

There is a SMALL amount of info on the Cruising Wiki's Brazil section (please add more). There is a contact address on the Brazil page that may be useful.

Also see Angra dos Reis (within the Brazil section).

If I remember correctly ( and don't count on it!), I believe that Herb Payson wrote one or more articles about his passage from the Caribbean to Brazil in his Crealock 34 Red Shoes. It appeared in Cruising World (I think). This would have been at least 10 years ago, and what I most remember about the article was how much hard on-the-wind sailing, and how much longer it took than he expected.

Going to Barbados first might make it a bit easier and get you closer to the equator and outside the hurricane region, but it's still a hard slog, I think. Several friends stopped off at Devil's Island and loved the area.

Sorry I can't offer more info.

Thanks, all! I'll be keeping a log (of course) and will let the board know how it goes. T
