Tall Ship Sailing

Tall Ship Sailing


As a follow-up on Galera ao Mar, a endangered youth sail education programme in Rio´s slum since 2003, Jan (the owner of Captains House) will gather interested persons and guests of Fano B&B, for a preparatory course for tall ship sailing. Hand-on experience can be arranged on "S/S Business" in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. S.S sailing schooner Business was built by Italian sailor family that made the first pouch coffee machine on the Brazilian market, even before George Clooney Nescafe machine existed. Combining the excellent hardwood works of 400 years traditional schooner builders in Valenca, Bahia state of Brazil with good solid sailing rigging architecture of 1990 giving this almost double-ender hull excellent sailing capacities. The 60 plus tons of the hardwood add to the additional 12 tons keel to make her a very stable sailor. All sails can be controlled from central winch forward aft mast, which makes her quick tacking with few sailors. Interior is also done all in wood and twin turbo Mercedes engines, 4000 lts fuel tanks gives her long reach as motor sailor.
