Colorful International Regatta in Riviera Nayarit
by Manuel Calderón de la Barca
The 19th Annual Banderas Bay Regatta, held from the 8th to 12th of March in the Riviera Nayarit, brought together more than 58 vessels, making this year one of the liveliest in almost 20 years of the Regatta’s history.
The agreeable temperate climate and seasonal winds of this protected bay contributed to the success of this colorful spectacle of sails, where the spirit of camaraderie was felt by all.
The grand finale of this event organized by the Vallarta Yacht Club was the awards ceremony, a beach gala that drew over 400 guests, in which the 21 winners in 7 categories danced to the rhythms of The Mexican Shuffle Band and Philo Hayward.
