Peligroso Sailing in Acapulco, Mexico

IMG_1424

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!

Glimpses of Acapulco, Mexico

It often happens that when you travel for work, you forget about the place you are actually visiting — the location is a grey backdrop to days of work and nights of exhaustion. Then you add the sailing component, and you have an entire population that shuns going anywhere but the boat and the yacht club.
