The blog

I am Brazilian and as a sailor my interest started with sailing canoes and some research on the web to know more about them 15 years ago. Gradually I built up so much material I decided to show in this blog as the Brazilian boats & canoes known or used on the coastline or inland of the country.  Most of the construction of the canoes have Indigenous peoples origin, as well as  the culture from African slavery and Portuguese immigrants mainly from the Azores whilst the (sailing) boats have the influence from Dutch & French presence in Brazil during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Note: The blog content has no scientific data and original names are in Portuguese and texts in English to help foreigners.
