(visited by Alam Cusma)

10-Jun-2007 -- We visited this point with the sailing boat Santa Cruz. (Alam Cusma and Luciano Castro de Aguiar)
Luciano had commented about confluence.org for more than a year. And this is Espírito Santo only point that nobody had visited.
Recently when it was in a fishery with the friends, our fishing one was close of these coordinates.
It was then that I got the idea of rendering the visit to the point S20 W40. We left of Sede Náutical Santa Cruz early in the morning, 07:15, with a course of 9,5 miles.
As the moving was in a sailing boat had the quiet restriction in the entrance of Barra de Santa Cruz for to 13:00 local time.
The result was great, we went out with the tide filling above 0,8 m, enough for the quiet of the sailing boat. We arrived the confluence to 09:30 local time, (half windless) after the pictures we drank soft drink and toasted peanut.
Our return happened as foreseen, the where to 12:20 local time we arrived the Sede Náutical.
