Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 

2016 International WesMex Regatta Riviera Nayarit

Jorge Jimenez - CVB of Riviera Nayarit
February 23, 2016

The eleventh year of the WesMex International Regatta is ready to set sail from February 25-28, 2016, at the Vallarta Yacht Club in Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit.

WesMex will be the first competition in the Riviera Nayarit for the 2016 FMV Vallarta-Nayarit Cup, a four-month-long sailing competition in Banderas Bay.

This competition is doubly important because it has also been chosen as one of the five national regattas within the Mexican Circuit for the Optimist, Laser, Windsurfer and 420 categories, which will be hosted at the best sailing spots in Mexico.

And as if that weren’t enough, WesMex will also be a division tournament for the Mexico sailing team to represent the country in several international youth competitions.

The opening ceremony will be on Thursday, February 25th at 5:00 pm. The competitions will start around noon and end right before sunset. The award ceremony will be on Sunday, February 28th after the last heat.

There are nine competitions for all the categories, with 250 sailboats and sailors in the Optimist, Laser (Standard and Radial), C420, Techno 293 and RS:X. The races will take place in Nuevo Vallarta, Flamingos and Bucerías.
