Salvador (BR) – Río de Janeiro (BR)

BOARDING DAY 27/10 AT 17:00H

Sail south along the stunning Brazilian coastline. We will soon be in the open sea once we have left Salvador. In this part of the Brazilian coast the wind blows from the north-east most of the year, which is good for us. The weather here is usually good and the skies are clear. But, of course, the weather is the weather? However, stage 5 promises to be a pleasant sailing trip.

The further south we go, the less wind there is. Only around Cape Frio can we expect a fresh breeze, and together with the strong currents, this tends to be a turbulent area to sail in. When the famous Sugarloaf is in sight, we will have reached one of the most iconic cities in the world: Rio de Janeiro. Rio’s old town is also included on the UNESCO World Heritage List, so there is plenty to explore here: from the Corcovado Mountains to the famous Copacabana Beach.

During the sailing trip, we will not be disembarking anywhere. Therefore, we recommend everyone to spend some time before the trip in Salvador de Bahia and/or afterwards in Rio de Janeiro to discover these beautiful cities and the countless wonders of tropical nature in between.

Level 1

Level 1 trips are suitable for anyone in good health. We sail, for example, in sheltered waters or close to the coast. In case of bad weather, we can seek shelter in a harbour or opt for a more sheltered route.

OOSTERSCHELDE wants to be accessible to the widest possible public, but you should be aware that you are making a trip on board a sailing yacht. This demands more of your physical capacity than a daily walk. One trip is more demanding than another. With the different levels we provide an indication of what kind of trip it is. If you are unsure whether a trip is suitable for you, it is important that you contact Tall Ship Experience for advice.

“Oosterschelde” was built in 1918 as a sailing freighter. The ship plied European waters and was frequently seen off the coasts of Morocco and the Mediterranean. In 1930, heavier and more modern diesel engines were installed and the rigging was reduced. From 1939 onwards, the ship sailed under a foreign flag and in 1950 underwent a drastic conversion into a modern coastal vessel. In 1988, the “Oosterschelde” was returned to the Netherlands. The Rotterdam Sailing Ships Foundation took over the fundraising necessary to finance the restoration of the ship to its original condition. The “Oosterschelde” is now the only remaining representative of a large fleet of schooners that sailed under the Dutch flag at the beginning of the last century. It is registered as a monument by the Dutch Ministry of Culture. The “Oosterschelde” is autonomous and is used in domestic and foreign ports for presentation and promotion activities. domestic and foreign ports for presentation activities and by companies and other organisations. In 1998, the “Oosterschelde” completed a one and a half year voyage around the world. The ship sailed to Antarctica, the Falklands and South Georgia.
