Mexican Ocean Racing Circuit
, the international that began in the '60s with the San Diego-Acapulco regattas, will return to Puerto Vallarta on March 23 to 29, 2014.

Known as one of the most important sailing events in the Pacific Coast, MEXORC, will put sailors from the Pacific coast of United States and Mexico in a race across Mexican waters in six days of races with daily regattas, one long or two short ones.

For its 2014 edition, it is expected to welcome approximately 50 sailboats from 34' to 80' representing more than 500 visitors and competitors with races taking place in the Bay of Banderas' Bahia Las Caletas, Marietas Islands and Puerto Vallarta's Marina.

Set on Bandera's Bay, member of the World's most beautiful Bays club, Puerto Vallarta's rich history is reflected through its diverse culture, gastronomy and inhabitants. Its horseshoe shaped bay shelters tropical lagoons, rainforests, mangroves, pristine beaches, waterfalls, and spectacular mountains, making it a prime ecotourism destination ideal for a variety of water sports.

In January of 2013, a newly renovated Los Muertos Pier, with a $2.4 million makeover, was re-opened. The pier, which at one point was the entry way into what is now the Romantic Zone, has a surface of 2,182 sq. ft. with a pedestrian friendly zone, a waterfront promenade, scenic lighting and a landing dock that can hold up to 6 different medium size boats.

Puerto Vallarta's world class tourism offer with luxury accommodations, vibrant arts scene and renown gastronomy will sure provide the ideal setting for a successful MEXORC 2014.
