Warwick Sherman never really wanted to do the Rolex Sydney Hobart, he'd done plenty of ocean racing, but bashing his way across Bass Strait to get to Tasmania just didn't grab him.

Less than one kilometre from Santos Dumont Airport, the marina offers visitors a privileged view of Sugarloaf Mountain, one of the city's most famous picture-postcards. From the waters of the bay, new views of this beautiful city are revealed - it is possible to see Corcovado Mountain, on top of which sits the Christ statue, as well as the iconic Pedra da Gávea.
In addition to nautical services, the site also offers space for events, fairs and festivals. On Sundays and holidays, the roads alongside Flamengo Park are closed to traffic and the region becomes a popular outdoor sports and leisure area for cariocas and tourists.
