We decided to take a closer look at this amazing training program, intended to expose youngsters of all nationalities in the area, along with their families, to the enjoyment of sailing.

Founded in the early 90s, the Vallarta Yacht Club in Nuevo Vallarta is a non-profit, private membership organization known for its service to members and contributions to yachting in the Banderas Bay region. They provide an active social environment for residents and visitors interested in yachting and other nautical activities, such as sport fishing, sport diving and paddle boarding. In addition, the Vallarta Yacht Club is host to world-class international competitions and sponsors charitable events and activities to benefit their educational goals, including the Junior Sailing Program.

We visited the Vallarta Yacht Club early this week to see some of the young students in action. The program has three levels of instruction for kids and young adults 7 – 24 years of age. Through the Junior Sailing Program, children have the opportunity to learn, in a safe and protected environment, skills and knowledge that can allow them to enter a sport that can provide a lifetime of great joy and friendships.

“Vallarta Lifestyles has helped us a lot to position our business, the fact that people see us in the magazine has contributed their coming back to Faith Colectiva. Actually, we have measured the reach of our advertising by offering a free gift and it is unbelievable to see them coming with the issue.”

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles was the first reliable magazine that emerged in our destination. In fact, up to date is the only publication that we have in Puerto Vallarta that you can be proud of, because if you give it to someone, you know that person will enjoy watching the photos and reading the articles in each of its pages. I consider, that it is the only magazine that prevails in Vallarta · Nayarit as an icon of this genre”.
