    I concur with the Danish race managers.
    Salvador is becoming significantly more lawless by the month.
    Is also becoming significantly decrepit as the Mayor & Governor signally fail to create and operate a renovation plan for the city. It is a city falling apart at the seams with the highest rate of city gun crimes and murders per capita in Brasil. Not a place for the innocent and unwary to venture.

    A great pity for the Yacht Club in Salvador. It would have been a great spectacle.
    So different from when Darwin and The Beagle broke their journey many years before.
    And such a sad fate for the erstwhile capital of Brasil.
