The port of Natal is situated at the mouth of the Rio Pontengi. The river flows into the sea through an opening in the barrier reef. The barrier reef forms a natural breakwater for the port.
The prevailing winds most of the year are from the ENE to SE.
Formalities can be carried out at the yacht club.
If this is your final port of call in Brazil, you will need to go to
the Policia Federal in Natal, half an hour away by car, and the Receita
Federal Office and Capitania Dos Portos in the nearby port.
There is a good anchorage in front of the yacht club or you can pick
up a mooring, taking care of the movements of the other boats swinging
around in the strong (ebb) current; the flood is not so strong. Use an
anchor light. Depths around 9 to 11 metres.
There is also a good anchorge at Rio Potengi.
Provisioning is easy at several supermarkets in the city.
