Northward ho…

Well, most of our fleet has headed north for the Summer. World J/120 didn’t follow the whales this year, but was subjected to the indignity of a flatbed truck. Time constraints being what they are, we wanted to get the boat back in San Francisco to get ready for the Pacific Cup race to Hawaii […]


So I just got back from doing some coaching for a J/24 team in Valle de Bravo, a beautiful lake about a two hour drive from Mexico City. This is a popular getaway for the city dwellers, and there is a fantastic sailing scene. Scattered around the lake are more sailing clubs than I can […]

So one of our alumni just sent me this video on You Tube… nice ride on a J/80, eh? Imagine what they would be doing if they got their weight farther aft. The bow is pushing in pretty hard at times, but they keep it under control… While we are at it, here’s a link […]

Hello Friends and Alumni – Wow, so much is happening, I’m not sure where to start. After a full winter, our Puerto Vallarta Sailing Center is still going strong. Spring breakers and vacationers of all sorts are currently taking advantage of wonderful weather. We are in PV thru June so there is still time to […]
