World Class Sailing Competition in Riviera Nayarit

by Julieta Del Toro
This year La Copa de Naciones de Vela will take place in Riviera Nayarit. This exciting competition will be held between the 20th to 24th of October 2010 and is the preliminary event for the October 2011 Panamerican Games, for which it will serve as the elimination challenge for many classes.

The competitions will take place in different areas depending on the sailing category: Paradise Village Marina, Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit Marina and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Ralph Nelles, president of the Mexican Sailing Federation is proud to be part of this event, emphasizing that all that has been achieved is due to a concerted effort between the invited countries and the authorities in each country.

Mr. Nelles goes on to say, “La Copa de Naciones is a preparatory event for next year and will be a great test to detect competitor’s faults. Although we have already proven that we have the capacity and experience to host such an event, on this occasion we have the support of the government of Nayarit, through the Instituto de la Cultura Fisica y el Deporte”.

This year the Regata Copa Mexico Edicion Nextel Bicentenario also took place in the local area, drawing more than 2400 competitors from 27 countries.
