The sailing season kicks off this 15th and 16th of November with the traditional Revolution Regatta, a regional event organized by the Vallarta Yacht Club (VYC) in Nuevo Vallarta.
The Regatta has been held for many years and includes several categories: Laser, Windsurf, 420 and Optimist. This year about 60 youths will be participating, mainly from the areas of Riviera Nayarit, Puerto Vallarta and Chapala.
There are two elements that stand out in this competition. The first is to welcome the winds that begin to blow in with the advent of winter; the second is to take advantage of the turnout to celebrate the bimonthly VYC fundraiser and its Youth Sailing Program.
The Cirque du Soleil Dinner Party will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday the 15th at the Paradise Village Marina. The event consists of a delicious three-course meal and a show by the acrobats of a group inspired by the Cirque du Soleil and their incredible feats of strength and grace.
The tickets are on sale at $350 Mexican pesos for adults and $175 Mexican pesos for children under 12. All of the funds from the tickets, the raffles, the drinks and the auction of grand prizes donated by commercial business will benefit the Youth Sailing Program and its scholarships.
The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau supports these activities because of their relevance to the destination; the VYC is not only ground zero for new sailing talent, but it also organizes different events and collaborates with others that greatly benefit the destination.
The activities held by the YVC also help to position the Riviera Nayarit among the top destinations for sailing in Mexico.
