Banderas Bay Clinic and Regatta by J/World Sailing School at Vallarta Yacht Club

J/World Sailing School

February 5, 2017

The J/World Performance Sailing School is offering an excellent training program for a nice mid-winter break in conjunction with the Banderas Bay Regatta in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Every winter J/World hosts a truly special racing event out of our Puerto Vallarta office. The dates this year are February 26 - March 4.

We begin with a three-day racing clinic aboard our fleet of J/80s. Sail trim, boat handling, starting, tactics, rules...  you name it, and we cover it! Wednesday is a lay day, then Thursday-Sunday we race in the ever fun Banderas Bay Regatta. This year J/World will be running four J/80s in the event, and we have only two spaces left! Looking for a tropical getaway and a great time sailing? Done.

The Banderas Bay Regatta is a special event held every March at our Puerto Vallarta Sailing Center. Participants range from flat-out racers, to cruising vessels that have sailed the seas to enjoy the wonders of Banderas Bay. The regatta represents the culmination of the month-long “Festival Nautico” in Puerto Vallarta, and has become a favorite of locals and visitors.

J/World, the Performance Sailing School, will be offering sailors the opportunity to come play (and learn) during this special event. We will be hosting a three day racing clinic prior to the regatta, which will include boathandling, sail handling, strategy, tactics, rules, etc. etc… all the elements which will contribute to a successful regatta. Please refer to our Racing Courses (Intro and Advanced) pages for details on the topics that will be covered.

Then it is test time… and we have the ultimate test: a real regatta! The event is a perfect blend of positive attitudes, friendly competition, and ideal weather. Participation in the event of course includes participation in all the land-based activities that the Vallarta Yacht Club has planned.

Each of our J/80s will have teams of three students plus one coach per boat. Everyone aboard will rotate through all the positions while getting the positive insights of one of our renowned J/World instructors. The host facility, the Paradise Village Resort, also offers great room rates for regatta participants, so bring the friend and family along for a fun vacation.

This year, J/World is inviting all boat owners/teams to attend our pre-regatta clinic. Classroom sessions will cover sail trim, boat-handling, strategy, tactics, and rules. On the water, coaches will conduct practice races and provide feedback on a wide range of topics.

The cost is $1,595 per person (plus tax; full pricing policies here). Reserve your space early ($400 deposit), as this event always sells out! Call 800-910-1101 or visit J/World online for more information.
