On behalf of the entire BBR Team, we want to thank everyone who participated in this this year's event. Twenty-five years ago when Terry O'Rourke and his pals decided to have a little run around Banderas Bay together, we're sure they had no idea it would become one of the most famous cruisers' regattas in the world. 

Our most sincere thanks to our sponsors for supporting us all these years:

Lloyds Insurance
O'Rourke and Associates
Los Arroyos Verdes
Ullman Sails
Casa Anita
Novamar Insurance
Paradise Village
Vallarta Yacht Club
Riviera Nayarit Tourist Association
Opequimar
Vallarta Yachts

Our event would not be possible without the support of our volunteers, who work for months to make the execution of this event look seamless and easy. Trust us, it's not easy!

 Of course, the reason we do it is for YOU, the wonderful cruising community in Banderas Bay. Every year we see old friends and make new ones, we tell stories of years past and look ahead to new cruising grounds just over the horizon. But for 4 days in March, we get together, lift a drink, raise our sails, and enjoy this wonderful Banderas Bay.

See you all next year!
