The 2010 edition of the Brasilian FE Championships was hosted by Upwind in Arraial do Cabo, near Rio Janeiro. The chosen event site was Base 2 - Upwind have another centre (Base1) at a nearby lagoon.
The venue was perfect with good onshore facilities, grassy rigging area, and easy access to the flat water racing area. Normally very windy, as often happens at championships, there was not enough wind to race on both the days scheduled for racing.
However, 4 good races on the Saturday ensured a valid championship and competitors could enjoy a closing ceremony - a fantastic prize giving preceded by a meal for all.

The event was also open to both FE sailors from outside Brasil and FW sailors.
