4myplanet arrived in Rio de Janeiro, hosted by Iate Club de Rio Monday29 March at 16h UTC
At noon local time we reached the entrance to the Rio de Janeiro bay to meet the beautiful 4myplanet.
It was 17h in France and other difference as a good 30 degrees on the water at the Corcovado foot. So a bit of heat haze accompanied by the warmth of a second meeting with Alexia since she left Monaco. A skipper that we saw in very good shape and immediately want to make a good meal.
With preparations from Ricardo, Director of the Sailing Section
the Iate Club Rio de Janeiro it is Edu (short for Edward) responsible for North Sails sailmaker who accompanied us (the team members on shore) on the zodiac.
At 13h local 4myplanet found its anchorage for a week well housed and secured his mooring buoy (large buoy attached to the bottom).
First operation, landing Alexia, her luggage, the bins of the board and some perishable food.
Second complete the administrative forms of entry in Brazil.
Finally, in the wake we went to the restaurant next door (we take what we want and they weight your plate for the bill !) where Alexia has begun to talk about his journey.
Big kisses to all from Alexia.
