Jeri end part/info

Unfortunately 5 weeks Jericaocaora are over. I sailed almost every day, using my 4.1 Bolt. I used my 4.7 3 times. I think

that's enough said about the wind. You don't have to worry about the wind. It was good every day.

Some info. Jeri is pretty cheap. Some things in the supermarket are more expensive others are cheaper. Fruit is really cheap.

We cooked twice a week. Pancakes and spagetti. We made pancakes for over 6 people for less than 2,- euro. The other days

we wet to restaurants. The average price is 15,- for food and 2,- for drinks (prices are in Brazilian Reaal). 1,-euro = 2.5 reaal.

One of the best things and also the cheapest is Filet de Frango. That is chicken with rice, beans and salad. This meal costs just

6.- reaal.

Staying in Jeri can also be cheap. There are a few expenxive resorts and expensive Pousadas. We had a small hous with 3 bedrooms and 1 extra bed. We also had to bathrooms and a kitchen. We paid 1200,- reaal total for 6 persons. That is 80,- euro a person for 5 weeks, 2.3 euro a night. I think that's pretty cheap. We arranged it before we went to Jeri but a lot of people do it in Jeri when they arrive. Be warned it gets more crowded during december.

If you have brought your own equipment you can leave it at Robot at Pousada Isabel. We paid 6,- a day. There are also others but this was the cheapest. You can leave one sail fuly rigged and one without a boom. The boss also does boardrepair. He makes a broken board a day. Not a nose damage but in two. So he has a lot of experience and is really good in repairing boards.

The spot Jeri. Jeri has 3 spots and sometime 4. You have the main spot in front of Club Ventos. This is were the most people are. Between the waves the water is flat ad the waves get medium high. The wind is side to side off. Than you have the wavespot. That is a little more upwind. The wind is a bit more side on making it easier to do jumps. Here the waves are the highest, good to do some wavesailing. Than you have the spot at the dunes. That is downwind. The wind is the strongest here. The warm sand of the dune causes that the wind is stronger than at the other two spots. The wind is more off shore, a little side. If the tide is low it's super flat between the waves. If the tide is high and the swell is good you can do some jumping. This spot is the best spot for flat water freestyle. It is also pretty quiet. There are no people sailing in front of you. The last spot is a little lagoon at the dunes. But this only works when the tide is on it's highest. Else it is dry. The lagoon is good for flat water freestyle.

Spots around Jeri. We've been to 3 other spots. Camocim, Lagoa Azul and the lagoon at the way to Jijoca. Camocim is a two hour drive from Jeri. The spot is in a river that ends in the ocean. When the tide is low the water is super flat. It is not only flat the flat part is over 200 meters long. The wind was a little bit stronger than in jeri. During the day when the tide is high is gets a little bit more choppy. Azul is more like a lake. The water is sweet end clear blue. It's a little bit choppy and the wind is a bit lighter than in Jeri. It's a really nice spot for pictures. The one I like the most was the small lagoon near Jeri. Because of the heavy rain season there are several pools betwee the dunes. All of them are really flat water freestyle spots. You can't sail for a long time. The biggest lagoon is maybe 200 meters max wide. The wind at these lagoons is stronger than in Jeri. I was on 4.1 but some took a smaller size.

If you need some info, feel free to contact me.

4 opmerkingen:

  1. Hoeveel planken heb je nodig? 1 wave board en 1 freestyle? 3 zeilen: 4.2 4.7 5.3?

  2. Ik had alleen een 90L freestyle board mee, maar als het even kan zou ik de volgende keer zeker wel een wave board meenemen. Je kan er op sommige dagen erg goed golfrijden en je kan sowieso vaak springen (backloop etc).
