Twelve countries have confirmed their participation in the 2021 Optimist North American Championship (OPTINAM), event scheduled for May 29th to June 5th in the Riviera Nayarit.

Linda Green, co-president of the event, confirmed that 113 competitors had registered so far, plus their coaches and team leaders, for a total of almost 150 participants.

The Vallarta Yacht Club and the Paradise Village Nuevo Vallarta hotel, the competition venues, are preparing to receive representatives from Argentina, Bahamas, Bermuda, Brazil, Cayman Islands, Chile, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, United States, Uruguay, Virgin Islands and Mexico.

“We are pleased to welcome such a large number of countries considering the current COVID environment we live in,” said Linda Green. She emphasized that the entire organization is working hard to ensure protocols are in place to keep participants, volunteers, and staff members safe.

The 2021 Optimist North American Championship is one of the most important world regattas for the Optimist Boat class and one of only seven continental championships sanctioned by the International Optimist Dinghy Association (IODA). It is also backed by the Mexican Sailing Federation (FMV) and the World Sailing Federation.

Participants in the championship are the best, fastest, and most talented young sailors globally; many of them are likely to be the next Olympic champions.

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”

“Without doubt, Vallarta Lifestyles is the best positioned Magazine in the region. Its solid presence keeps a strong and always fresh vision about the destination, as well as activities. Besides, I consider it a great intellectual contribution for the well written articles that are in each issue.”
