Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico - The Vallarta Yacht Club will hold it's Semi-Annual Fundraiser for Banderas Bay's only Junior sailing program on Saturday, April 29th from 5:30-10 pm at the Vallarta Yacht Club in Nuevo Vallarta's Paradise Village.
For a donation of just $395 pesos for adults and $165 pesos for kids under 12, you'll enjoy a 3 course sit-down dinner, raffles, live and silent auctions, and fun for everyone. Prizes include restaurant dinners, spa treatments, Vallarta Adventures tours, weekend stays, golf, merchandise and more.

This event happens twice a year, Spring and Fall. It is a great way to support the junior sailors and the Fundación Nautica de Bahía de Banderas AC, which is teaching our youth to sail on Banderas Bay.
Our Junior Sailing program is intended to expose youngsters of all nationalities in the area and their families to the enjoyment of sailing. With multi-lingual, competent instructors, administered by a Board sanctioned Junior Sailing Committee and assisted by the stewardship of the Yacht Club Staff, member volunteer leaders and Junior Sailing parents.
The program's objectives are the following:
• To teach seamanship, sailing and racing skills, in a safe and fun environment
• To enable students to acquire, through the overall experience of program activities, life-long values such as sportsmanship, consideration of others, teamwork and self-reliance, as well as a love and respect for the sea
• To teach young people how to sail to the best of their ability and interest, and to encourage growth in skill and competence through both individual and team participation
• To encourage the acquisition of competitive sailing skills in regattas and in races at VYC and other Regional, National and International events
