    Amazônia 🇧🇷 | Sailboat ~ 13 m

    At 7pm we entered Porto to put diesel in the boat and we noticed that the depth was low, but it was ok. We anchored on the beach, but at midnight there was a lot of waves and our anchor dropped, so we decided to dock in Porto. We called channel 16 but no answer and for security reasons we decided to join. In the Navionics it marks a depth of 3m (wrong) on ​​the left side of the entrance and with low tide of 40cm we had 2.60m to pass calmly because our draft is 2.05m. Right at the entrance we ran aground and even with an engine we couldn't get out because the waves threw us further inwards. A port lord tried to help us with a small boat without success. We spent the whole night making sure there was no further damage to the boat. At 7 am the lord of the port came back to help us, but the scenario was worse because the waves took us to the shallowest part and nothing could move us, not even a fishing boat that passed and tried to move us. At around 8:00 am the marina people with a bigger boat came to help us and after many frustrated attempts to move us, they tied a cable to the halyard of our boat and pulled with great force until the boat heeled so much that the propeller came out. Out of the water, to no avail. They did the same with the halyard on the other side and with the help of the engine it worked and we got out of the hole that formed under the keel and the rudder. They told us that this is common there. We docked in Porto and the captain of the captaincy was very kind and cordial and came to know what happened in detail and gave us an authorization to be moored there for as long as necessary to make sure that everything was fine with the boat and in good weather to navigate. Nothing happened to the boat, although the paint came off the underside of the keel and the rudder. So if you are going to enter this port, DON'T TRUST NAVIONICS AND DON'T ENTER WITH LOW TIDE if I'm more than 2m silent

    Great spot for the night, compared to the overpriced marina. Anchored in 5m on sand, there is plenty of room to lay the chain out. No noise or parties when we were here, was very quiet.

    In transfer boat from Roccella jonica, previous stage Cetraro where we were welcomed in transit. For the Italian naval league only places in transit (fortunately) at least one foot on the ground. Not really positive experience, but we delighted in the San Domenico restaurant. Thanks to president Luciano Russo.

    In trasferimento imbarcazione da Roccella jonica, tappa precedente Cetraro dove siamo stati accolti al transito. Per la Lega navale Italiana solo posti in transito (per fortuna) almeno un piede a terra. Esperienza non proprio positiva, ma ci siamo deliziati al ristorante San Domenico. Grazie al presidente Luciano Russo.
