Vallarta Yacht Club

Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit • Mexico

Our vision at the Vallarta Yacht Club is to create a non-profit private membership organization that enjoys a prestigious reputation as a globally recognized world-class yacht club known for its service to members and contributions to yachting and the Banderas Bay region. Our Club has three objectives to attain that enviable status:

• First is to provide an attractive, comfortable, and active private social environment for members.

• Second is to promote, sponsor, manage, and provide facilities for local and international yachting events.

• And third, is to sponsor charitable events and activities that benefit the Banderas Bay region and its residents.

Our facilities are specifically designed to provide a relaxing, comfortable atmosphere for members while providing many needed services for boaters. We operate a full-service restaurant and bar and provide Internet service, mail drop, community bulletin board, showers, Jacuzzi and many more amenities to members and guests.

The design of the yacht club complements the beauty and quality of the Paradise Village resort. The restaurant, bar and outdoor dining terrace on the main level blend in with the tropical atmosphere and overlook the marina and lagoon at Paradise Village, The lower level contains administrative offices, restrooms, and showers. And, a huge Jacuzzi and swimming pool on the lower level are also available to members and marina residents and guests.

Our Vallarta Yacht Club offers reciprocal privileges and is actively seeking new members. There are five classes of membership to fit nearly every situation and budget.

Junior Sailing Program at the Vallarta Yacht Club

Our Junior Sailing program is intended to expose youngsters of all nationalities in the area and their families to the enjoyment of sailing.  With multi-lingual, competent instructors administered by a Board sanctioned Junior Sailing Committee and assisted by the stewardship of the Yacht Club Staff and member volunteer adult leaders and Junior Sailing parents. The program's objectives are the following:

• To teach seamanship, sailing and racing skills, in a safe and fun environment
• To enable students to acquire, through the overall experience of program activities, life-long values such as sportsmanship, consideration of others, teamwork and self-reliance, as well as a love and respect for the sea
• To teach young people how to sail to the best of their ability and interest, and to encourage growth in skill and competence through both individual and team participation
• To encourage the acquisition of competitive sailing skills in regattas and in races at VYC and other Regional, National and International events.

VYC provides thirteen new Optimist sailing dinghies and three Laser Class boats purchased by the club and by individual club members who donated these dinghies to the Jr. Program. The Optimist was selected as our youth training dinghy because it is considered one of the safer and more stable dinghies afloat. There are over 150,000 Optis world wide with fleets in 110 countries. The Mexican Optimist Association has fleets in Valle de Bravo, Cancun, Lake Chapala and Acapulco. Our Junior Sailing Program has three levels of instruction for kids 8 – 14 years:

The Opti 1 – Beginners - This program is for kids with little or no experience. The goal here is to foster confidence and understanding. The students need only to know how to swim as a prerequisite. The class is eight weeks long with one training session each week after school.
      
The Opti 2 - Intermediate - This program is for those students who have completed Opti 1 or have equivalent experience.  The class is six weeks long and meets twice a week after school.

The VYC Opti – Team - Those students who have excelled in Opti 2 can, by invitation of the Director, become a member of the Opti Team.  This is an ongoing course designed to further train and develop skills for regatta competition in both Mexico and North America. VYC currently hosts Opti and Laser regattas here in Banderas Bay. Our first Junior Sailing International Regatta, the North American Optimist championship was held on July 4-12, 2007 and was attended by 190 kids from 20 countries.

Program costs vary but is important to note that it is the intent of the Vallarta Yacht Club that no child with a desire to learn to sail be denied the opportunity. The Club has various scholarship opportunities to help those with need to make the program cost affordable. Contact the director for more information.

Children have the opportunity to learn, in a safe and protected environment, skills and knowledge that can allow them to enter a sport that can bring a life time of great joy, friendships and peace.
 
How to get Started

Simply obtain an application at the club or download an application from the club website. Upon acceptance of your application, the Director will advise you of a class assignment and start date for your child. You will be required to pay your program initiation fee and sign a release of liability agreement prior to your first class.  Classes are limited to 10 students. Once classes are filled, your name, if you wish, can be placed on a waiting list for future classes.
