Em viagem a Abrolhos, em 2 de março de 2009, o registro do ponto 18S39W (a 31.3 km or 19.4 miles a sudeste de Ponta Catoeiro, no Estado da Bahia, Brasil) foi com sucesso obtido. Nossa equipe, composta por Capitão Maurício, e os mergulhadores Simone Pasianotto Costa (eu), Isis R. Steffens, Miriam Jaussi, Lourival Santos Flor, Paul Jaussi e Robert Goertz, auxiliados pelos marinheiros da nossa embarcação (o Sanuk), ficou muito orgulhosa, após uma primeira e única tentativa de conseguir registrar esse ponto.

Do alto do mastro do Carmarã Sanuk (foto # 9), Simone Pasianotto, munida de uma câmera digital amadora, conseguiu captar a imagem da terra referida à Ilha de Santa Bárbara, localizada no Parque Nacional dos Abrolhos.

Nosso primeiro ponto no Confluence.org foi muito comemorado. Todas as fotos que seguem foram obtidas de forma amadora sem qualquer tratamento gráfico.

Aguardamos ansiosos pela homologação desse ponto!

Our team, composed for Captain Maurício, and the divers Simone Pasianotto Costa (I), Isis R. Steffens, Miriam Jaussi, Lourival Santos Flor, Paul Jaussi and Robert Goertz, assisted by Sanuk's sailors, was very proud, after a first and only attempt to obtain the register of this point.

At the high of the mast of the Sanuk (pícture #9), Simone Pasianotto, armed of an amateur digital camera, managed to catch the image of the cited land to the Island of Saint Bárbara, located in the National Park of the Abrolhos.

This was our first point in Confluence.org and was very much commemorated.

We wait anxious for the homologation of this point!
