Mexico may have stepped in some major public relations poo this winter thanks to some not-uncommon bureaucratic stupidity and arrogance, and it will never be as safe as your local suburb, but we maintain that the Pacific Coast of Mexico still has some of the most beautiful sailing grounds in the world and is worth the hassle. This excellent spot in La Cruz was a tiny fishing village a decade ago, and now it’s a fully developed community with a big marina that will serve as HQ for next week’s Copa Del Mexico, the biggest regatta in the country. Supported with some great parties thanks to Mexican tourism sponsorship cash, this year will feature J24 North American Championships as well as an oceanic class, Wesmex (Optis), boards, and kites.
