News from Ilha Grande,pictures too!

This was a message that came in from Rod and Mary on Sheer Tenacity,a Shearwater 39 yacht designed by Dudley Dix,they are enjoying the island of Ilha Grand,which is around sixty miles south of Rio de Janerio,Brasil.

Hi Roy,
The weather has settled, and Ilha Grande is really turning
on the charm! The Vende signs are cropping up more and more on islands ,
villas, and beautiful dreamy places! Enough to tempt one, until you register
that Brazil has escaped most of the financial turmoil, until now that is !
The beauty about cruising here, is that nobody can own a beach, and
anchoring is for free! Why would one want to own an island, be stuck in one
place, and have all the fixed costs and maintenance? Rather park off someone
elses beautiful island, and let him look after it!!
