This passage will start with a bang - with the famous New Years Eve fireworks on the Copacabana beach in Rio. Then be on the first ship to bring the message of all-ability sailing to the African continent. Cape Town has been a stopping place for square-riggers for centuries but when you arrive there you will be sure to get the greatest welcome for it will be the very first time that an accessible tall ship has visited these shores. Between leaving the vibrant South American culture in Rio and arriving in South Africa, you will visit Tristan da Cunha, the most remote inhabited archipelago in the world. In World War 2, the islands were a top secret Royal Navy weather and radio station and during this time the only currency there was the potato.
