(visited by Captain Peter and Eulogio Paguntalan)
29-Jan-2006 -- The an initial intercontinental ocean crossing through the new "ubraintv-jp.com Boat" indigenous Valencia (Spain) to southern America go well, and this morning at 07:00, soon after sunrise us are currently approaching the anchorage area the Rio de Janeiro.On the control console you have the right to see the radar with integrated GPS and also electronic mapping and the ECDIS display (Electronic graph Display), which makes navigating really easy and safe. My deputy, chef Officer Eulogio Paguntalan from the Philippines, was assisting me.
The visibility is unfortunately no the best one, however as the ubraintv-jp.com 23S 43W is fairly close come the shore, we might of course watch something:
Looking come NW, we watch the coastline east that Rio de Janeiro. There is Praia Itaipuaçu, and the influential conical hill we see below is not the renowned Morro Pão de Açúcar ("Sugar bread Mountain"), however Alto Moirão, or, - in stimulate to prevent confusion -, pragmatic as the Brazilians are, its 2nd name is "Falso Pão de Açúcar".
Looking to east there is a tiny group of islets, called Ilhas Maricás. To the WSW we watch two tiny islands, Ilha Redonda and Ilha Rasa.
As cargo operations will not commence front tomorrow, Monday morning, we had to continue to the waiting area and drop anchor. I was recommend by Rio de Janeiro port Authorities to select a position north that Ilha Rasa.
For the services of an excellent order let"s gain acquainted through the genuine "Sugar bread Mountain" as well. Morro Pão de Açúcar rises indigenous the west side of the enntrance gate of the bay around which Rio de Janeiro is located. This bay, specific Baía de Guanabara, is bordered by part spectacular rocky mountains. Many civilization not too acquainted with Rio de Janeiro do think that the famous white statue of Christ, 38 metres in height, and spreading his arms end the city, is positioned on the summit the the Sugar bread Mountian, but this is one error. The statue was standing on Pico de Corcovado, about 6 km west that "Sugar loaf Mountain".
The last photo I have actually taken I think does not need much explanation:It mirrors the by much most famous beach in the world, expanding SW of the "Sugar loaf Mountain": The Copacabana!
