Among the experiences I had the happiness and the privilege of experiencing, certainly sailing in the company of Mauricio aboard the Thalassa deserves a special mention.
I’d never sailed before. I saw the Milky Way with the naked eye on the high sea!
Thanks to Captain Mauricio’s patience, I learned the Mainsail trimmer job, and soon I was promoted to the vice champion tripulation of the 41st Ilhabela Sailing Week, held in 2014, within its category.
Thanks to its pleasant personality, Maurício forms many sailors, and some today are happy captains of their own sailboat.
Spending a weekend on the boat was an amazing experience!
The warmth of Mauricio and the comfort of the boat, as well as the paradisiacal and almost deserted beaches, made everything very pleasant!
It is certainly a trip that provides unique moments and opportunities that I would repeat.
It was my first trip on a sailboat and I’ve already loved it! By the outside the boat seems small, but it has room for everything and everyone, very practical … Also, the boat is super cozy, does not balance much, so it is difficult to get sick.
The sea was beautiful, and nature too!
Spending the weekend on the sailboat was great for relaxing and enjoying and I would definitely travel again.
The boat is very cozy and welcoming, in no time there was the feeling of insecurity. With great humor and unequaled landscapes, this trip will definitely be marked, super recommend to disconnect from the routine!
The experience not only taught me a lot about navigation, but also about the wealth of nature in Brazil.
I will always remember this weekend !!
My name is Marcia and I would like to tell you a bit about my experience with sailing.
My husband wanted to buy a sailboat and we had the idea of having an experience before making the purchase.
We contacted Mauricio and I had one of the best experiences of my life.
We went to Ilha Grande / Parnaioca, and I can say that the sensations and emotions I experienced on the boat were incredible. From the experience of sleeping at sea, which was phenomenal, till the fact that we had seen a Whale Minke.
We also had the pleasure of witnessing the “ballet” of a dolphins chasing fishes to feed themselves.
An experience that permeates the soul.
As for Mauricio, we could not have chosen a better person.
An experienced, safe, kind and polite captain who made this experience so good that we took the decision to buy our own boat.
Best regards to everyone.
