Iate Club do Esperito Santo (Vitoria)

Characteristics

Description

.Vitoria is a pleasant, modern city in the state of Espirito Santo, with a very busy port. Consequently, there tends to be quite a bit of noise from the industry across the bay.

The Iate Clube de Espírito Santo is very welcoming to foreign cruisers.

It is a port of entry.

If clearing into Brazil here you must visit the Policia Federal (Marine division) NEPON, the Maritime Tax department and the Capitania - in that order.

If arriving from another state, you must visit the Capitania and the Policia Federal (Marine division) NEPON. If staying less than 72 hours you can clear in and out at the same time.

The yacht club Marina can assist with Immigration and Customs, which MAY come to you at the marina, depending on how busy they are. If not, a taxi will be needed.

Good charts are essential to be able to safely negotiate the Baia Espirito Santo (which has a bar running through it) and the shallow approach up to the moorings. A night approach is also possible with close attention to the lights and marks as the entrance is well marked.

Yachts with up to 2m draught should be able to enter the yacht basin where you will be directed to a berth. Visitors are often given berth on on the western arm of the yacht basin where they moor stern-to. Sufficient cable should be let out to counteract the strong onshore breeze which is typical of afternoon conditions. Yachts with deeper draught may have to anchor off and come in by tender.

There is a fairly new and well-maintained marina here, run by the yacht club, where boats pick up a stern mooring line, and tie the bow to the dock. Although it is very often full and a berth may not be available.

The most suitable anchorage is just off the yacht club, but beware of both the current and the depth on the SW side of the breakwater. An alternative anchorage is in Vitoria harbour itself, but this is not much used by yachts.
