Banderas Bay Regatta XXXI Puerto Vallarta – Riviera Nayarit

Published on

Boat Parade Theme Announced: Mardi Gras – Let the good times … SAIL!

This year, BBR’s overall theme is “Mardi Gras”. We’ll use that theme for the BBR Boat Parade, too!

“Mardi Gras – Let the good times … SAIL!”

The opening day parade of boats heading to the “Start Your Heart Out” practice line is the grand opening and long-standing tradition of the BBR event. At noon on opening day all registered boats will enter the Paradise Village Marina harbor and will be ushered into the proper sequence to parade past the judges stand. They will then proceed to the “Start Your Heart Out” practice area.

While the competitors are out on the race course, spectators can only easily see them with binoculars. The Boat Parade is the best chance for them to see the competing boats up close and to let the skippers and crew hear their cheers of encouragement. All boats registered for the Regatta will start the festivities at this event.

Crews are encouraged to decorate their boats, and themselves, for a sail-past a viewing stand where an MC will call out the name of the boat, give a little information about the boat and crew, and give the crowd on the shore a chance to cheer them on. A team of judges will decide which boat best demonstrates the theme, and a trophy will be presented at the end-of-event awards dinner.

Let the Good Times Roll!

Every year, a group of hard working and under appreciated (they told me to say that) volunteers get together to plan BBR. This year, our boat parade chair suggested that the theme for the parade should be Mardi Gras. Who cares if BBR is a month after the real Mardi Gras? That’s just how we roll.

Then, somebody said, “Heck, why don’t we just theme the entire event for mardi gras?” Heck yeah! Let the good times roll!

So, that’s what we’re going to do. This year, Banderas Bay Regatta will be themed for Mardi Gras. We’re having custom BBR beads printed, and goodness knows how the place is going to get decorated.

For more than three decades, the Banderas Bay Regatta has been a source of exciting competition and enjoyment for sailors of all kinds, taking place in the enchanting tropical paradise of Banderas Bay, Mexico. With its pleasant climate and consistent March winds, the protected Bahía de Banderas provides an ideal setting for sailing activities along the Mexican Pacific coast.

This non-profit event is organized by the Vallarta Yacht Club, renowned for hosting international regattas that cater to dedicated racers, and cruisers alike. Notable past events held by VYC include the 2011 Pan American Games, J24 World Championship & Nationals, Opti Nationals & North Americans, Laser World Championships, and, of course, the Banderas Bay Regatta. The Regata Internacional Bahia de Banderas stands as the Vallarta Yacht Club’s flagship event and holds the distinction of being the largest and most enjoyable cruising regatta on Mexico’s Pacific coast. From its inception, the Banderas Bay Regatta was created by cruisers, for cruisers. Even after thirty years, the contributions of our generous sponsors and the dedicated efforts of our amazing volunteers have ensured that the regatta remains focused on the needs and interests of cruising enthusiasts.

The Regatta and the Vallarta Yacht Club are committed to promoting and supporting the education of young sailors. Skippers participating in each regatta are encouraged to invite young sailors to join as crew members. The VYC Junior Program, the oldest and most extensive program in the region, offers valuable local knowledge and serves as a valuable resource for aspiring sailors.

The vision of the Vallarta Yacht Club is to create a non-profit private membership organization that enjoys a prestigious reputation as a globally recognized world-class yacht club known for its service to members and contributions to yachting and the Banderas Bay region. The Club has three objectives to attain that enviable status:

First is to provide an attractive, comfortable, and active private social environment for members. Second is to promote, sponsor, manage, and provide facilities for local and international yachting events. And third, is to sponsor charitable events and activities that benefit the Banderas Bay region and its residents.

The Vallarta Yacht Club offers reciprocal privileges and is actively seeking new members. There are five classes of membership to fit nearly every situation and budget. Please see Membership Information for details and membership application.
