Jacaré yacht village (Paraiba Brazil)

Jacaré yacht village (Paraiba Brazil)

Characteristics

Description

It is best to proceed up the river to Jacare, but beware of the many shoals and strong currents. It is advisable not to use a "danforth" type anchor as it can more easily be tripped when the tide turns. Beware of the unlit fishing nets strung across the river.

At Jacare, yachts can anchor in front of the "yacht club". Although this is no longer a "club", dinghies can be left here during the week.

Jacare Yacht Village (or Marina Jacare Village) have much-improved facilities for cruising yachts. You can independently anchor close to the marina or tie up to one of their mooring buoys or docks.

What was once a fishing village has now become a busy resort, popular with the Brazilian jet-set and notorious for its all-night music. Everywhere in Jacare noise can be a problem.

40 berth marina with water and electricity - inner docks are shallow, outer docks depth 4.5m. Clean showers, laundry, wifi, small swimming pool, bar/restaurant.
Able to organize entry formalities (they will go with you or send a driver with you) and assist with finding parts and repairs. The driver knows everyone. Owner Nicolas is a sailor and used to help organize transatlantic rallies. Very safe and a good place to leave a boat for a long period. French, English, Brazilian all spoken. Useful website with local information and entry waypoints.

Il s'agit d'une nouvelle petite marina (Jacaré Yacht-Village) localisée á 2 miles derriere le port de Cabedelo sur la pointe extrème Est du continent Sus Américain, dans l'estuaire du Rio Paraïba, au Brésil, et qui offre, outre la traversée la plus courte de l'Atlantique tant depuis l'Europe, le Cap Vert, ou l'Afrique du Sud, un lieu d'escale sûr, en eau calme, avec une bonne structure d'acceuil et d'appuis aux nivigateurs (le créateur de cette petite marina "familliale" est un ancien navigateur) C'est un endroit idéal pour visiter le Nord-Est du Brésil, mais aussi pour y laisser son bateau en sécurité pour voyager vers d'autres pays d'Amérique latine conne le Pérou ou la Colombie par exemple, ou faire un retours de quelques mois vers son pays d'origine...
L'entrée de Cabedelo est bien balisée, de jour comme de nuit (ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas sur la côte Brésilienne!), et les formalités d'entrée sont simplifiées et toutes regroupées en un seul lieu á proximité.

Sont inclus dans le tarif d'amarrage de Jacaré Yacht-Village:
L'amarrage et l'eau douce au ponton, et l'accès Internet à bord 24h sur 24h par WIFI .

Tout est dit ci-dessus, sauf que l'électricité n'est pas facturée en plus.

La police fédérale est dans un bâtiment "proche" de Jacaré (taxi...), les douanes et affaires maritimes sont au port de Cabedello (encore taxi, le même...) mais on peut revenir en train, folklorique, à faire absolument.

On peut aussi aller en train jusqu'à Joao Pessoa.

Bien le bonjour à Philippe et Francis qui vous aideront dans tous vos besoins.
