January 2010 Acapulco Regatta

Acapulco, Mexico

Acapulco racers hoped that the January Regatta would be a good practice for the upcoming MEXORC race in Puerto Vallarta, but not much practice got accomplished with only 2 races finished due to light winds. Each race was challenging with a big wind shift each race(about 200-240 degrees change each race) which made boat speed being the only tactic some boats could count on. The R/P 42 "Quintessence" sailed with a new U/S carbon GPL L/M#1 genoa that was really fast and finished across the line with speed to burn!
The new ORR ratings from US Sailing have not been issued, so all the results are provisional until??
Best of luck to skippers and crew who are going to MEXORC / Copa de Mexico. Ullman Sails will be reporting from Puerto Vallarta during the MEXORC, please stay tuned and check the Ullman Sails website for more racing and sailing action and updates!
