Sail fest

This is the weekend of lots of sailing activities here in Banderas Bay.  The cruiser fleet has races today off of La Cruz then tomorrow they race down to Punta de Mita with a party on the beach there.  Tuesday they return up the bay with the Pirates for People race back to this end of the bay.  Funds raised are used to purchase school supplies for students at the lower income schools in the Puerto Vallarta area.

The kick-off of the long weekend was a party put on by Latitude 38, the marina and the State’s office of tourism here.  It was a very nice  welcome to the new cruisers and a thank you to all for the benefits that they provide to the town.  This party was at the beach palapa with a very good one-man band providing the music.  There was a fire juggler and some children let off hot air balloons with a small fire inside to light them and raise them up.
