Pancho Vela at Vallarta Yacht Club's Jr. Sailing Program Fundraiser

Richard Williams - Vallarta Yacht Club
November 8, 2012

On Saturday, November 17 at 6:00 pm, Pancho Vela (!) will be coming to the Vallarta Yacht Club to help the kids in our Jr. Sailing Program keep on sailing.

It's the Fall Fundraiser, a Revolution Day Dinner and DJ party.

There will be raffle prizes and an auction. The prizes include certificates for hotels, spas, dinners and other exciting gifts from merchants across the Banderas Bay area.

During the day, the kids will be sailing in the VYC Regata de la Revolución. Come on over to the party and cheer them on for the next day's races!

This fundraiser is critical to support the VYC Jr. Sailing Program and enables us to keep training the sailors of tomorrow (8-15 yrs. old) by maintaining the program and equipment in a sound and safe manner.

The program also provides opportunities for scholarships so local prospective young sailors can participate and develop skills and self-confidence to last a lifetime.

Donation price for the dinner is 300 pesos per person and 150 pesos for kids under 12. All net proceeds support the Jr. Sailing Program.

Sailing develops maturity and self-reliance in these youths and offers the opportunity to both sail for fun and compete with young sailors across Mexico.

Our VYC Jr. Sailors have earned medals in the Mexico Jr. Olympics and in international regattas with participating countries as far away as Singapore. Let's join together and keep the program going!

The Vallarta Yacht Club is located in Nuevo Vallarta next to Paradise Village Mall. For more information on this event or the VYC Jr. Sailing Program call (322) 297-2222 or visit us at vallartayachtclub.org and be sure to follow us on Facebook!
