Countdown to Vallarta Race 2024

Published on January 25th, 2024

The 37th edition of the San Diego to Puerto Vallarta International Yacht Race, a biennial international offshore yacht race between the USA and Mexico, begins with staggered starts that get underway on February 22 for the 1000 nm course. Twenty-six boats have confirmed their participation.

In 2022, Roy P. Disney and the crew of Pyewacket 70 set a new monohull record for the course of 3:04:38:02. Disney’s team bested the Bakewell White 100 Rio100’s 2016 mark by one hour and 4 minutes. Less than an hour later, Rio100 also beat their 2016 time by about 25 minutes.

Disney returns with his Andrews 68 Pyewacket, as does John Raymont on his Ker 52 Fast Exit II who will seek to defend his 2022 title in which his team won ORR-2 Class and Overall Honors. As he gears up for his fourth Puerto Vallarta Race, he looks forward to fast reaching into warmer waters. “Offshore racing is a complex, healthy, competitive, high skill sport with addressable risks,” said Raymont.
