I would sail to the island of beautiful and naked women, with no morals, but since that does not exist.... Perhaps a circumnavigation.

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.

Paulo, have a look at the coastline in the southeast of Brazil (from Florianopolis -SC to Buzios-RJ and you'll see tons of sheltered bays and coves, especially in the region between Santos-SP and Ilha Grande-RJ. The coast is lovely, the sails between anchorages are short, the food is delicious and the people are wonderful. I think you must be thinking of the northeast when you say there are few anchorages (in rivers) and security problems. The fact is that most foreign yachts arrive in Brazil in the northeast and head north from there, missing the nicest part of the coast.

It's not the loaded boat that I need, its the time.

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

How many crew members are on the boat, and are they brave and tough or cowardly? Can a crew of one or two stay on while I get off for a while?

There are lots of places to go and reasons for going or not going, but I wouldn't want the thread to get moved to the politics section.
