ClubVentos - COVID-19

COVID-19 Updates

The situation related to the virus is continuously evolving, so we are posting updates in this section.

December update: Interview with Guests

Here in Jericoacoara looks like we are living in another planet. Covid became a low threat, probably because of several favorable factors such as the warm and windy weather of the Brazilian summer and the excellent work done by the state government. This situation is a total contrast from May when the pandemic reached its peak level in Ceará, and both Jericoacoara and Icaraizinho went into complete lockdown. The local situation is much safer now. 

People are free to go anywhere, exercise, practice sports and party. Most of our activities are on open and wide spaces. We returned cautiously and with a huge smile on our face. Some people have already appeared and have not regretted it.

Forecasts show that Jericoacoara and Icaraizinho might be one of the safest place for you to be this winter, as a second wave of the Coronavirus is projected to be coming to several countries in the next months, especially those in the Northern hemisphere. Our area is an exception to the trend, with a projection of one of the lowest infection rates of the world by the end of the year.

The IHME, from the University of Washington, has established the golden standard for data aggregation, graphical reporting, statistical analysis, and offers the most accurate forecasting about the Covid-19 pandemic. It uses supercomputers and AI to process big-data collected from the entire world, and is predicting today that the second coronavirus wave might be even stronger than the first. Read the article from IHME Director Dr. Christopher Murray, about the second wave.

The state of Ceará, where Jericoacoara and Icaraizinho are located, has received the WTTC [Safe Travels] stamp, in recognition to the adoption of health and hygiene global standardised protocols – so consumers can experience ‘Safe Travels’.

This important recognition from the World Travel & Tourism Council, is one more indicator of the excellent work that the state of Ceará has done in the management of the Covid-19 crisis.

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), from the University of Washington. The most precise and advanced analytical / forecasting tool about the Covid-19 pandemic available in the world.

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, many statistic websites and health authorities have started to publish data about the evolution of the covid-19 pandemic online. You have probably seen the official one from your country, state, and maybe even city. However these reports will be often limited to local data, and might be biased by difference in speed of aggregation, and percentage of testing of the population.

Airlines have been following closely the coronavirus situation in Ceará, especially those with international flights into FOR. As the Ceará state covid numbers show a steady improvement since June, with no second wave even after commercial activities were restored, the usual flight schedules are being gradually restored.

The impact in the economy brought by the coronavirus pandemic has made Brazilian currency lose its value compared to the euro in the recent months, making the cost of everything in Brazil much cheaper for a European. The historical exchange rate of [1€ = 4.5 R$] has changed to [1€ = 6.5 R$], a valuation of 45%. It means that you can now stay 3 weeks in 2020 for the usual cost of 2 weeks in 2019. But that would mean nothing if it was not safe to travel. But the good news are: Jeri and Icaraizinho are now some of the safest places to be in the world.

ClubVentos Jericoacoara has upgraded the club’s wifi connection with the best in class: optic fiber link and 5Ghz wifi enterprise-class managed routers.

In the age of remote work, our new infrastructure will allow you to attend to your online meetings from the beach, and keep the ball rolling in the office.

Customers planning to spend the winter in Jeri will enjoy the new connection, to work, play, or stay in touch with the family.

If you are looking for a way to escape from the second wave lockdown, moving to Jeri for some weeks might be your best decision of 2020. Jeri will be one of the safest places in the world this winter, with low prices, strong wind, and empty waves.

In line with most countries, Brazil has established specific laws and regulations to protect travelers’ rights and to avoid closure of tourism companies in this difficult situation that our planet faces.

Brazilian cancellation, rescheduling and refund rules, for travel services during the pandemic, is very similar to those adopted in most areas of the world.

In essence the rules say that if you have made (or if you want to make) a reservation of travel services during the pandemic, you have the following rights:

ClubVentos Jericoacoara reopened on August 21st. We are ready to sail again, and we are doing it in the safest possible way! Our team is fully trained to ensure that COVID regulations and safety measures are being strictly followed.

Get ready to enjoy this season! 

Ceará vs Brazil - Winds are blowing in our favor!

The situation in Ceará (state where our Clubs are located) is much different from the rest of Brazil.  Ceará had its peak in early June, and has since been on a consistent drop with no second wave, even with business activities gradually reopening since July.
