Issuma Sailing

Fri Aug 7 8:05:07 EDT 2009, Ilha Grande, RJ, Brazil

With the fisherman (big sail between the two masts) set. Am still experimenting with the length of the tack downhaul, which controls how high up the sail is set (which is why the fisherman is not all the way to the top of the masts).

Maggie got in the dinghy and took some pictures of Issuma under sail while in Bahia de Ilha Grande (Ilha Grande is a really nice area of Brazil for cruising around in).

Niteroi is across the bay from Rio de Janeiro. This is the view from the very friendly sailing yacht club, Yacht Club Rio. Issuma is the far-away boat furthest to the right.

While entering Rio de Janeiro's harbor, this submarine passed in front of the old fort at the entrance.

Hope you didn't have to do a "Crazy Ivan" to avoid the sub!!! LOL

Can you see the 38 meter tall statue of the Redeemer on the top of Corcavado mountain?

Not being familiar with submarine detection tactics, I had to look up what a Crazy Ivan maneuver was :).

When there are not low clouds, yes, the statue can be seen.
