As I sit and reflect on the midway point in the 2016 MEXORC regatta only one thought remains constant, fun. The atmosphere only Puerto Vallarta lends to the flavor of this event. City front views are the backdrop for a group or racers who came from all over to compete in this bi-annual event. Team Timeshaver, Viggo Torbemsen's J-125, traveled from Laguna Beach California and again am fortunate to be part of the team. For this event we have been sailing with ten people and really could do with one more. Our competition comes in the form of four Farr 40's and two Santa Cruz 50's. It's a great fleet and the pedigree of sailors is large. Our racing started on Sunday and we came off rusty. After sailing 1000 miles in the PV race I was a bit off my game during the first start of a buoy event. We ended up a bit late and found it hard to fight our way back through all the bad air and lack of passing lanes. One race on Sunday meant we had to wait a day to recover. And recover we did. The crew work on day two was amazing and we had a great start in the first race that helped us lead the race around every mark. The SC-50 Horizon was nipping at our heels and the Farr 40's we making us nervous with their upwind presence. We sailed clean and won the race outright.
