VYC Hosts WesMex International Small Boat Regatta

February 20, 2017

Over the past 12 years, this annual sailing competition has grown from its original 43 competitors, to nearly 300! This growth is due largely to the perfect sailing conditions that the Bay of Banderas offers.

Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit - The WesMex International Small Boat Regatta 2017 is scheduled again at Vallarta Yacht Club, on the 10th, 11th and 12th of March. These sailors range in age from 8 to 65 years old on 6 different classes of boats.

Vallarta Yacht Club is honored once again to have the WesMex Regatta chosen by the FMV as one of five national regattas in the Mexican Sailing Circuit for the class associations of Optimist, Laser, Windsurfers, and 420s. Also, for the second year, we are pleased to welcome the competitors in the 2017 Mexican Laser Masters Championship.

Now in its twelfth year, International WesMex Regatta 2017 will be a national qualifier for the Laser Youth Worlds Mexican Sailing Team to represent the country at the Youth Worlds Championship this July in Nieuwpoort, Belgium. WesMex is also a qualifier for the Optimist South American Championship scheduled for April, 2017 in Encarnacion, Paraguay. An added feature of WesMex this year is the J70 and Hobie Cat fleets. These two fleets bring an entirely new dynamic to the event with speed and color on the water!

Over the past 12 years, this annual sailing competition has grown from its original 43 competitors, to nearly 300! This growth is due largely to the perfect sailing conditions of Banderas Bay, as well as the incredible support of the Mexican Sailing Federation (FMV).

We invite you to enjoy one of the best places to sail in the world, the beautiful Bay of Banderas. The event is best viewed on the water or the beaches off Nuevo Vallarta. For more information on WesMex, visit wesmexregatta.org, or email chair(at)wesmexregatta.org.

The Vallarta Yacht Club is located approximately 6 miles north of Puerto Vallarta airport in the Paradise Village Marina in Nuevo Vallarta. For more information about the VYC, visit their website.
