ITAJAI Brazil

Brazil and water sports, looking to the future.
With its 9,600 kilometres of coast, its 45,000 kilometres of navigable inland waterways, its maritime tradition, its ideal climatic conditions, the fame of its sailing champions, its many boatyards, the development of its many marinas - not forgetting its 800+ million US dollars-worth of boat sales in 2012 - Brazil unquestionably has a huge potential for watersports development. In addition, the South owed itself a benchmark show, which will be achieved with the Itajai Salao Nautico International.
Itajai (Santa Catarina), watersports capital
Staging point of the 2012 Volvo Ocean Race, Itajai will be the arrival city for the next Transat Jacques Vabre, in 2013. And Itajai has already given its consent to be the one of the stages in the 2015 Volvo Ocean Race. Determinedly facing towards the open sea and the ocean, Itajai is supported by Santa Caterina state, home of many water sport professionals. In fact, 250 of the businesses operating within the State are currently members of ACATMAR (Sailing Association of
Santa Catarina in Brazil), among them major players in the Brazilian and international watersports industry, such as Schaefert, Fibrasport, F Yachts, Azimut, Bayliner, Sea Ray... Le Salao Nautico in Itajai will be south Brazil's first international show, and will contribute to the development of the industry locally and nationally!
