This was from the final race of the 2012 Vallarta Cup, a regatta consisting of a race a day every Saturday in January. We went out with a pile of great people and friends on Profligate, a 65 foot cat… there was a whopping total of 29 people onboard… but it didn’t feel crowded at all. And thanks to a great crew, yours truly was able to kick back, chat with old (and new friends), hoist a couple of cervezas, and catch some of the action on video. There are a lot of shots of Kevin and Sandy’s new-to-PV J/133 Paladin just ’cause she’s a sexy looking boat. And a couple nice views of the always well sailed Bright Star and newcomer Olas Lindas. And dig that techno soundtrack!
Sooo… if this looks like your kind of racing, we still have a couple options for you this winter. Even though the San Diego to PV Race and the annual Banderas Bay Regatta are both sold out, two spaces remain onboard our 50 footer Hula Girl for the fantastic MEXORC regatta in March, and there is a great racing clinic aboard our J/80s the week of April 2.
