In commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the foundation of the Mexican Navy, there was a gala yachting event held in Acapulco, Mexico for this milestone. The Mexican Navy personnel helped transport many of the J/24s from the lake at Valle de Bravo to Acapulco’s harbor at no cost. The Acapulco Yacht Club hosted the event in which a fleet of 96 boats participated from different Classes. Sixteen J/24s took advantage of this opportunity to sail the calm waters of Acapulco Bay from April 20-22. The teams enjoyed amazing sailing conditions all three days. “We had so much fun that we are seriously considering making this an annual event where all our friends from around the world will be welcome. We hope to see you soon in warm sunny Acapulco Bay,” said J/24 owner Leopoldo Farias.
