- With the Vallarta Cup Race Series, which will take place every Saturday in January, the nautical community of Mexico’s Pacific treasure readying its sails for next March, when 10 major international competitions will take place in our destination
Riviera Nayarit is getting ready to set sail for the Nautical Extravaganza that will take place in our destination this year. Next March, ten different international competitions will take place, including those organized within the framework of the Regata Copa México, Olympic Edition.
To get the party started, January will feature the Vallarta Cup Race Series, which is being organized by the Vallarta Yacht Club of Nuevo Vallarta, and which will take place every Saturday in January.
With seven years of experience, this event has been enhanced and redesigned so that both sport and cruise vessels can compete. The routes for this year were traced to give larger vessels the opportunity to completely deploy their sails.
The competition is open for all eligible vessels in the International Banderas Bay Regatta, and will be regulated according to the The Racing Rules of Sailing. The sport and cruising classes will be ranked separately.
Some new features this year will include a new class just for fun, for those who prefer to sail in a non-competitive environment. There is no handicap requirement for these ships.
Experts consider Riviera Nayarit as one of the best destinations for sport sailing due to the quality of its wind currents, and this has allowed our destination to host the Regata Copa Mexico twice. Additionally, a number of nautical sports can be enjoyed year-round, and our destination offers modern marinas, fiberglass specialists, and technicians that can fix all the gadgets found on a ship, as well as extraordinary touristic services.
The Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) of Riviera Nayarit congratulates all members of the Vallarta Yacht Club for their constant impulse to promote our destination, through the organization of international events like the Vallarta Cup Racing Series and the International Banderas Bay Regatta, which contribute to promote and attract visitors to our destination.
