March Madness, sailing style

Published on March 29th, 2018

There are some people that have got it all figured out, and we are guessing that Mark Surber is one of those people. For starters, he owns the J/125 Derivative, a 41-footer from J/Boats which was injected with bit more ‘go’ than its siblings. Then he orchestrates his own form of March Madness, sailing style.

The schedule begins with the 1000 nm San Diego to Vallarta International Yacht Race, a coastal slide where every days gets warmer, the spinnaker is your friend, and the finish line is in Puerto Vallarta, a resort town on Mexico’s Pacific coast.

That was March 2 to 7, and now his group had their sights on MEXORC 2018, another five day adventure on March 10 to 14 that involves buoy and short distance races on the blue waters of Banderas Bay, a horseshoe shaped venue that has hosted the Laser Worlds, J/24 and Optimist North Americans.
