Moorings In BrazilWith an increasing amount of interest in South America as a charter destination, The Moorings has responded with a new base in Paraty, Brazil. Surrounded by towering jungles plummeting into the waters of Baia Carioca, this charter cruising region features bays peppered with islands and world-famous beaches.

The Mamanguá is located in the District of Paraty – in the southeastern part of Rio de Janeiro state. It’s the only tropical fjord on the Brazilian coast.

ParatyParaty, Brazil

Centrally located between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Paraty (pronounced “Para-chee”) holds the key to many natural wonders you can only discover by boat. Backed by mountains on Brazil’s Costa Verde, Paraty is a UNESCO World Heritage site offering colonial-era architecture, cobbled streets, and a vibrant culture ideal for exploring before or after your charter. On the water, charter guests will enjoy a blend of lush Atlantic forests, scenic hikes, hidden mangroves, emerald-green passages and soft-sand beaches. A 7-day charter will take guests to such stops as Cotia Island, Ilha Grande, Gipoia Island, and Cedro Island, each with its own distinct flair and a wonderful mix of both populated and more quiet, isolated zones.

“We wanted to make a special announcement to celebrate our 50 years on the water. Brazil is a sought- after vacation destination, and we’re excited to give our guests a unique place to sail and explore. Our customers will enjoy protected, remote harbors where they’ll personally connect with the locals and explore pristine cruising grounds off the beaten track,” said Josie Tucci, VP of Sales and Marketing.

Deck Plan45-3 deck plan

A fleet of 3-and 4-cabin monohulls are now available for charters beginning after January 1, 2020. The fleet will be located at Marina do Engenho in Paraty, Brazil, and will be operated by our local partners at Wind Charter Brasil. This will include a 3-cabin Moorings 413 and a 3-cabin Moorings 419, both monohulls manufactured by yachtbuilder Delta, as well as a 3-cabin Moorings 45.3, built by Beneteau, and a 4-cabin Moorings 51.4, built by Jeanneau. Ever-popular for their spacious layouts and fully appointed cockpits, all four monohull models sleep up to eight passengers.

Beneteau Antares 11By Andy Adams

What perfect timing! Beneteau is has just announced their new Antares 11 model for North America and I think it will be exactly what many people are looking for.

The boat business has simply taken off during 2020, spurred on by the social distancing requirements of the global battle with COVID-19. In many regards, this situation has brought a lot of families closer because there are few options for travel and recreation. I suspect that many families have rediscovered the joys of being together, going places and doing things.

ChemainusBy Marianne Scott

The approach to the Chemainus Municipal Dock from Stuart Channel is straightforward and is protected from all but strong northerly winds. The only obstacle may be some large log booms often anchored in the harbour. The Dock is immediately south of the B.C. ferry terminal; the ferry runs to Thetis- and Penelakut Islands.

Harbourmaster Harmen Bootsma, who has been the cheerful, welcoming presence here for a couple of decades, is ready to catch your lines.

WinterizationBy Andrew McDonald, Lakeside Marine Services

“They don’t make ‘em like they used to”, is a phrase that many of us are familiar with. Most of the time it is in reference to a bygone era of better, and it’s used to lament the sorry state of what we have today. It is a phrase that can be applied to many areas of our lives: architecture, art, furniture, tools. Boats? I would argue that they don’t make them like they used to. But, is that lamentable, or is it progress?

Progress, I think. With this concept in mind, as we enter another season of putting boats to bed for the winter, why do we winterize as we always have?
