Cinco 70s

That’s five 70’s.  Brand spanking new J/70s, that is.  Just rolled into Puerto Vallarta.  The trucks were a bit late getting down here, but on Friday we managed to get them all off-loaded and all the rigs up.  Three were out sailing yesterday, and man they are great!!

Off-loading at Paradise Village.
Shoving off for the first sail.

We’ll get some more pictures of these incredibly cool boats sailing shortly.  So does the weather look pretty ideal?  Oh, believe me, it is.  Shorts, T-Shirts, about 15 knots out there.   Buen día indeed…

Classes are running regularly in paradise…  c’mon down!

Maserati Race Car… er, Boat…

Congratulations to Maserati….  they just shattered the New York for San Francisco record.  No highways involved on this one…  the 70 foot yacht skippered by Giovanni Soldini made the trip around Cape Horn in a touch over 47 days.  That took just about 10 days off the old record!  Pretty impressive.   Congratulations!
