Racing on the Bay03/07/2010
It's regatta season on Banderas Bay, and David's been racing for Cirque, a Beneteau 42s7. We just wrapped up the Copa de Mexico, an extraordinary 8 days of racing and events that included a visit from the President of Mexico. David got to shake the president's hand during the closing ceremonies. Wow! It's pretty sweet watching whales, dolphins and diving booby birds from the rail of the race boat. Next up, the Banderas Bay Regatta. We're on Dock E at Paradise Village Marina, with a local crocodile that surfaces from time to time.

This regatta was a huge deal in Mexico; here Navy boats help run the race.
