Every last weekend of the month, el Club de Yates de Acapulco hosts two days of racing. They bring together a decent fleet of big boats for some competitive and fast racing. Saturday is usually a couple of windward/leeward races, and Sunday is typically one long race around the bay.

For this trip, I borrowed a camera and lenses from some friends, and resolved to come back with some decent photos. Special thanks to Brett and Courtney for lending me gear, knowing full well it would be used in a somewhat precarious environment. I also have some video, which will take me a while to edit, as I’m trying to learn Premiere as I go. But in the meantime, hope you enjoy the photos!

And here’s a quick time lapse of putting the boat in the water.

As always, many thanks to Lorenzo and family for inviting us onboard Peligroso!
