Re: Bareboat charters in Brazil

Again, thank you, Copacabana; obrigado.

Famous words: "It seemed to be a good idea at the time."
A friend of mine, Larry, who is a sailor and who once was a pole vault athlete, who still has many friends in the world of track and field, thought that it would be fun to charter a boat during the Rio Olympics. His idea was that we could combine some cruising and exploring the Emerald Coast with perhaps some racing as well as have a place to stay and to entertain people during the Olympics. (Larry owns a 9M Etchells open keelboat.)

Also, by chartering a boat, perhaps we would have some sort of opportunity to avoid a conventional packaged, processed, standardized tourist environment and be able to get a bit off the beaten path and meet Brazilian sailors and people in a more congenial and relaxed atmosphere.

Larry was not aware of the limited charter and marina infrastructure in Rio. Perhaps it would prove more practical to find more conventional lodgings (hotel, bed and breakfast, et cetera) during the Games and do a more conventional charter before or afterward.

However, this is still a good time to explore and learn what might be possible. Perhaps some marina or club is considering a way to expand its ability to host visiting boats by the time of the Olympics or perhaps some other opportunity will appear. Other people may have good ideas, too.

Obrigado novamente por sua bondade, e abraços boas de volta para você.

Re: Bareboat charters in Brazil

Pat, you might want to check with the Iate Clube do Rio de Janeiro (ICRJ) to see if they have a reciprocity agreement.

Iate Clube do Rio de Janeiro

You might get 3 days that way. The problem here is that the number of yachts (especially big motor yachts) is growing so rapidly that marinas and clubs can't keep up with the demand. Problems of a booming economy and too much money!

I still think it will be hard to stay in Rio on a boat during the olympics, but nothing is impossible. If you want to avoid the tourist hotel thing there is also the possibility of a homestay in Rio or renting an apartment on a weekly basis. There is (and will be) a shortage of hotel rooms in Rio so these have become common solutions to the problem. Renting an apartment will let you entertain as you mentioned you'd like to do. But do charter in Angra before or after. You'll love it. It will be winter and the days are not too hot and the weather is generally sunny, dry and very pleasant. Both Ilha Grande and Paraty are well worth the visit.

Se precisar de alguma coisa, é só falar. Abraço!

Re: Bareboat charters in Brazil

I am not a member of one of the clubs in ICRJ's list, although I've visited the California Yacht Club and one of my clubs has reciprocity arrangements with it and most of the other clubs in California. It might be possible to have our club's secretary establish reciprocity with the ICRJ.

However, your suggestions about home stays and apartments for the actual Olympics, may make more sense and work out for the best. That could be combined with an Angra charter before or after Rio. And it might just be a good idea for me to visit the Rio area well before 2016 to explore the options.

Again, many thanks,
Pat
