Re: If you had a fully loaded sailboat where would you sail to?

First of all I would take some load out. I don't like to sail boats near their maximum payload. No fun and then I would sail to a place where I can stay out of marinas, can sail everyday to a different place, can go to a bar or taverna when I want, find easily food at cheap prices. Some more points, it had to have beautiful scenery, preferably clear and hot water.

I am missing something, oh yes, nice chicks but I guess that I am englobing that on the nice scenery

Regards

Paulo

Where ever the wind blew me and the weather was warm.

A little rum would be nice as well

Like Leon Russell said - "I have to go back to the island" - pick as many as you need

One a serious side, I am interested if Brazil can offer me that, even if for that I have to cross the Atlantic but a countryman of yours, that I have found in the med sailing an Amel, dissuaded me to do that: Says that the coast, except in some precise locations has not shelters, that most of them are in rivers without any support for yachts and that there are some problems with security. Says that there are some very nice spots but they are just that, spots.

I would love if you have another opinion. I am not kidding, after a tour on the med I am going to make a tour on the Atlantic and I had thought in Brazil as part of that tour.
