El Presidente de Mexico LOVES Sailing!

19 Mar

J/24 sailor - Mexico's President Felipe de Calderon at J/24 Copa Mexico RegattaYes, it’s true.  President Felipe Calderon is a big supporter of sailing in Mexico.  Felipe sailed J/24s for years in Valle de Bravo just west of Mexico City– an absolutely spectacular lake high up in the mountains.  Through El Presidente, Mexican sailing has blossomed and Felipe has supported the Mexican Navy sail-training programs- mostly on existing J/24s around Mexico, including Opti’s and Laser’s for local, public kids and adults.  They’re all public access sailing programs!  More on other such public/ private sailing program partnerships in Mexico next week!
