Voyage description

Sail south along the breathtaking Brazilian coast. We’re soon at open sea once we’ve left Salvador. Along this part of the Brazilian coast, there is a northeasterly wind almost all year round, which is favorable for us. The weather here is usually good, and the skies are clear. But, of course, the weather is the weather… However, leg 5 promises to be a pleasant sailing voyage.


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


During the sailing trip, we will not make landings anywhere. We therefore recommend that everyone spends some time before the trip in Salvador de Bahía and/or afterwards in Río de Janeiro to discover these beautiful cities and the countless wonders in the tropical nature between both.

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 1

Level 1 trips are suitable for anyone in good health. We sail, for example, in sheltered waters or close to shore. In heavy weather, we can seek shelter in a port or opt for a more sheltered route.

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
