The OOSTERSCHELDE sails from Rio de Janeiro to Montevideo.

Voyage description

The sixth leg takes us from Río de Janeiro to Montevideo. We are leaving the tropics now, and this will be felt at sea. The nights are cooler, and the weather is more unstable. Northeast wind is still the most common wind direction, but there are also regularly calmer days and days with southwest wind. South of latitude 35 degrees, the wind is becoming increasingly westerly and in order not to sail too much to the west, we stay close to the coast. After so many weeks in the tropics, with steady wind, this again demands a little more from our sailing capacities.

Uruguay’s colorful, historic capital is located on the northern bank of the Río de la Plata. In Montevideo, you can enjoy the local cuisine and discover the nearby seaside resorts, with sandy roads and pine forests. Montevideo is the perfect base to explore Uruguay and is not inferior to Rio de Janeiro. We recommend that you stay a few more days in at least one of the two cities.

Before and after your voyage leg
We strongly recommend you book a few days accommodation in the port of your embarkation (prior to your joining Oosterschelde), and a few days in the port you disembark (after your place on the voyage ends). This will allow you to recover before and after your adventure and will give you the opportunity to explore locations at your start and end points.

Level 2

Level 2-voyages are suitable for anyone in good health and a reasonable level of fitness, without mobility issues. On these voyages, you can expect days with strong winds or high waves, but most of the time the conditions will be good. A harbor is not always nearby and (medical) help from shore is therefore not always available.

The shipping company would like the OOSTERSCHELDE to be accessible to the widest possible audience, but you must realize that you are making a voyage aboard a seagoing tall ship. This requires more of your physical ability than a daily walk. Some voyages are more challenging than others. With the different levels, we give an indication of how heavy the voyage can be. If you are unsure whether a voyage is suitable for you, it is important to contact shipping company OOSTERSCHELDE for advice.
