Our plan is to only stay in Brazil for a short time unfortunately to give us a break on the long trip up the Atlantic from Cape Town. According to Cornell, the trip up the coast of Brazil from the Rio area is very hard because of currents and adverse winds. We thought that going to Salvador was a reasonable compromise since it is not too far from the 'corner' of Brazil (400 nm?). Just bought a Lonely Planet for Brazil and will start considering where to go visit. Also have to get a cruising guide for the country.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
