Blast!… of the Banderas Bay Variety…

Yep, the 2010 Banderas Bay Blast kicks off today here in Puerto Vallarta. This is a low-key, informal ‘regatta’ (and we are using that term in the loosest way possible, since the ‘winners’ are chosen from a hat!) is made up of three days of point-to-point cruises.

Today is from wherever-you-are to La Cruz. Tomorrow is La Cruz to Punta Mita. And Friday is the Pirates for Pupils Spinnaker Run for Charity… 14 miles downwind from Punta Mita to Paradise Village and the Vallarta Yacht Club in Nuevo Vallarta. The conditions? Looks to be perfect 12-16 knot afternoon seabreeze, air temp at about 80 degrees, with water temperature at 78. Hmmm… December is looking good!

Anyone down in Vallarta should try to make it out for this good cause (and fun event)… and those of you not down here should seriously think about making the excuse to join us south of the border. J World Sailing has lots of sailing courses running at our Puerto Vallarta sailing base, and we offer skippered charters and bareboat charters to boot!
And for the racers…. our next sailboat racing course is the week of December 13. Then there is the Banderas Bay Regatta and Clinic in March, and don’t forget the Newport to Cabo Offshore Yacht Race!
In the meantime, we’ll post a report of the Blast in a couple of days…
All the best,
Wayne Zittel and the J World Team
