18-Jul-2004 -- Foi durante uma velejada no dia 18 de julho de 2004, com origem na Vila de Itapuã, de onde saímos tres veleiros com destino ao Porto do Barquinho, no lado leste da Lagoa dos Patos.
A confluência em questão (31S 051W) fica ao norte da entrada dos molhes do "Barquinho", a uns 20 minutos de distância. O dia estava lindo, com 15 nós de vento leste e bastante ondulação. Após passar pela bóia luminosa do banco de São Simão, dei a proa do veleiro diretamente para a confluência, praticamente navegando paralelo ao banco de areia, enquanto os outros dois veleiros seguiam seu rumo.
Depois de tirar as fotos dos pontos cardeais, segui viagem. A foto da confluência foi tirada durante o retorno, no dia 21 de julho.

It was during a sailing day (18 of July of 2004), with origin in the Vila de Itapuã, where we left, on three sail-boats with destination to Porto do Barquinho, on the east side of the Lagoa dos Patos.
The confluence in question (31S 051W) is to the north of the entrance of the piers of the " Barquinho ", around 20 minutes of distance. The day was pretty, with east wind of 15 knots. After passing the light buoy of São Simão, I tacked directly for the confluence, practically sailing parallel to the sand bank, while the others two sail-boats followed their route.
After taking the photos of the cardinals points, I proceeded on my trip. The photo of the confluence was taken off during the return, in day 21 of July.
