BRally Amazon 2022 edition

The BRally Amazon is an adventure to discover the Amazon Rain Forest, taking place over 20 days and covering 500 nautical miles into the Amazon River, from the Delta to the heart of the Amazon, discovering the secrets of the river, the forest and its people.

The event offers a mix of cruising in company and free time to explore the region. The pace of the BRally allows the boats to remain together and enjoy group activities on land or in the privacy of their crew.

The fleet is accompanied by an infrastructure consisting of a support boat, private security, mechanic, medical and logistical staff, in addition to cultural and gastronomic events created especially for this adventure.

WHO TAKES PART?

BRally Amazon 2022 will be an exclusive event for a minimum of 10, up to 30 boats. This event attracts sailing and nature lovers, who have always dreamed of sailing in the Amazon and who will have the opportunity to sail in their own boat in a safe and organized way. If you don’t have a boat, you can participate in this experience as a crew member on one of the registered boats.

REQUIREMENTS

We require all boats to carry safety and communication equipment, which are generally already required by shipping authorities.

The sailboats must have a minimum length of 30′ and engines capable of moving the boat at a minimum speed of 6 knots, so that the fleet can sail together and boats can carry an adequate amount of water and fuel for the 500-mile course.

Why to Participate?

Most people participate in a flotilla of boats for the safety and tranquility of being part of an organized event; for the camaraderie and friendship of a large group of people with similar ideas; and the fun of sailing in a group.

In addition, our team will always be on hand to assist you when entering the country, or in obtaining spare parts and repairs, or simply, in indicating the best restaurants in the city.

HOW MUCH?

The registration fee for sailboats flying a non-Brazilian flag is made up of a fee charged by the boat, its captain and one crew member. If the sailboat has additional crew members, another fee will be charged for each additional crew member.

REGISTRATION FEE

Foreign sailboats will pay the registration fee of USD 3,000 / each boat, including the captain and one crew member.

Foreign sailboats regularly registered in the Recife-Fernando de Noronha International Regatta (REFENO) will pay the registration fee of USD 2,500 / each boat, including the captain and one crew member.

Each additional crew member will pay the organization fee of USD500. In addition to this fee paid to the organization, each crew member must agree their participation with the captain of the sailboat in which they are part of the crew. The payment of the registration fee to the organization does not guarantee the participation of the crew member, so each crew member must pay their registration only after being accepted in the crew of one of the boats.

BOOKING FEE

Payment of a non-refundable reservation fee of US$1,000 will reserve a provisional spot on BRally Amazon through July 31, 2022. The reservation fee will be deducted from the registration fee.
