I mentioned it to couple of friends and it seems I could quite easily make my marina fees back renting out a few bunks anyway..

Will have to do some more research on those islands, then again, we might even get a bit crazy and head down around the horn.

Hugh, the lack of mooring in Rio is a problem, even without a World Cup! I'd look into staying in Niteroi, which is just across the mouth of the bay and an easy bus trip into the city. In Rio you are pretty much left with only one option: Marina da Gloria. If you need anything, just let me know.
