The blog

I am Brazilian and as a former sailor, my interest in sailing canoes lead to some search on the web to know more about them. The blog shows the Brazilian boats and canoes known or used on the coastline and inland of the country.  Most of the canoes have Indigenous people’s origin, mixed with African slaves’ culture or Portuguese immigrants’ knowledge from the Azores, whilst the sailing boats and canoes have the influence of Dutch & French 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.
