Sailing in shalow river

Sailing upp the river from Salvador to Cacoeira is quit Challenging. And witout a centerboard wich is lifted up almost impossible.. Jagerens draft with centerboard up is about 1m 10 cm.. The fishing boat are still running witout a engine and they are quit friendly.. A verry fully marked with verry low prices of fruit and vegetable is in the end of the river.. We saild over one fish net.. And gave the fishermen some money and a cace.. They seemd happy..
All the bes.. Søren and Gjermund
