Like to race? Like to party? Enjoy great scenery? You Are Invited to Banderas Bay Regatta XXIV.

It is with great pride that I announce that the 24th Annual Banderas Bay Regatta is scheduled to take place March 9-13, 2016.

Registrations are now open for this fun filled week of music, good food, great camaraderie, and great racing.

This regatta is the one of the biggest regattas for cruisers and racers in the world and is the largest and oldest on Mexico’s west coast. For the past 23 years we have brought together cruisers as well as serious racers for a week of parties and yacht racing. We include several classes for small boats,  performance boats and cruisers. Handicaps for cruisers are calculated based on the fact that most competitors are loaded with gear, a dinghy or two, extra anchors, a complete sail inventory, and most likely provisions. The idea is to have 4 days of fun and 3 days of racing on a body of water that is considered one of the greatest sailing venues in the world.

If you are planning on cruising to Mexico’s west coast (or beyond) this coming winter cruising season please consider joining us.

Entry fees are 1000 pesos per boat (about $65 US or $80 Canadian) and include 2 tickets to the Awards Banquet to be held on the beach at Paradise Village Resort in Nuevo Vallarta.

For more information about the regatta including discounted slip rates, hotel specials, and access to the on-line registration, please visit Banderas Bay Regatta.

Banderas Bay Regatta is, and always will be, a non-profit event supported by a group of dedicated volunteers. We are grateful to our sponsors for their continued support.

See you on the water!
