Fuel Spill Causes Flight Delays at Puerto Vallarta International Airport
Services at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport were temporarily suspended yesterday in order to clean up a jet fuel spill caused by a driver under the influence breaching security and colliding with a fuel truck. "An unidentified man entered a restricted area at the Lic. Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR) and had a collision with a fuel vehicle, causing a spill of jet fuel," explained Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacífico (GAP) in a statement. According to reports, the event occurred at 10:00 am on Thursday, January 5 and operations were restored a few hours later at 12:15 pm. According to GAP, there were no injuries or damages caused by the incident. "The driver, presumably under the influence of narcotics, is in detention, but it will be up to the relevant authorities to determine his status," the statement said.
Vallarta Cup Race Series on Saturdays in January
2017 is here and the Vallarta Yacht Club (VYC) is kicking off the Vallarta-Nayarit sailing season with the traditional Vallarta Cup Race Series. This series, which has been held every year since 2005, runs four Saturdays in January. The Vallarta Cup features boats from 23 to 50 feet, and includes race courses that cover Banderas Bay from as far south as Puerto Vallarta to as far north as La Cruz and the surrounding areas. Races start at noon every Saturday on January 7, 14, 21 and 28. Because this is a friendly competition, the boats can participate in one or all of the races. Entry fees: All Races - 500 members / 700 pesos non-members • Individual Races - 150 / 200 pesos. Racers and VYC members enjoy after-race parties at VYC every Saturday night of the event, including rock, blues, reggae, and even Caribbean Soul. Sailing during the day, party at night!
