A sailing day around Ilhabela

On Saturday, April 30th, there will be a sailing adventure at the northeast side of Ilhabela designed to please the LADC2011 attendees as a day out from the conference.

Ilhabela, an amazingly small island, with just over 25,000 inhabitants, in the north coast of São Paulo, is located at 100 km from São José dos Campos. It comprises an area of 348 sq Km surrounded by 39 beaches and over 300 waterfalls. This environment engulfs visitors into a green charming tropical forest on the Atlantic cost.

Ilhabela is named the Capital of sailing and cruising in São Paulo State. For the last ten years, several cruise lines have anchored on the island to visit the small village. This summer season has been the longest of its history. It has began in October 2010 and will most likely remain as such, up to April 2011.

This day tour organized by LADC2011 for the attendees’ enjoyment at this unique natural charming area is tentatively arranged as follows:

A van or a bus will pick up the group at the conference hotels on Saturday at around 7:30 am.
One hour-trip down through the Atlantic Mountain Chain will take the group to the So Sebastio harbor.
A ferry boat links the harbor to the Perequ pier at the island where a schooner will be waiting for the group.
A five-hour cruise from 11am to 4 pm with a two-stop plan is scheduled to take place at the most attractive beaches of the island:

Fome beach
– The Sea is greenish-blue, with calm waters and good for diving. With 150 meters of extension, the beach is accessible by trail or sea. It is crossed by two streams. This beach is known in the region for an old historical house used to keep slaves in colonial times. The name "Beach of Hunger" comes from the story that slaves were fed, after a long journey from Africa. They were kept there in order to gain weight to be sold for better price.

Jabaquara beach – Jabaquara is one of the most beautiful secluded beaches on the island. It is about 500m long, with a strip of white sand, cut by two freshwater streams. The right side river empties its water into a beautiful lake. It is the last beach in the north where access by car is possible. Two bars serve drinks and fish dishes to visitors.

A ferry boat will take the group back to São Sebastião harbor.
The return will last one hour through the Atlantic Mountain Chain by private bus that will bring the group back to São José dos Campos in the evening sometime.
