Pensacola – Isla Mujeres
By Enrique Lima Zuno, Dr. Ed Boos & Guy Brierre
In 2022 Gulf Coast sailors will celebrate the 31st sailing of Regata al Sol from Pensacola, Florida to Isla Mujeres, Mexico. This biennial premier offshore race is organized by Southern Yacht Club, Pensacola Yacht Club, and the Club de Yates Isla de Mujeres.
The starts of the race will be May 9th, 2022. The course will take racers from Pensacola Bay across the Gulf of Mexico to Isla Mujeres, Mexico just off the Yucatan coast from Cancun.
This race offers all the excitement of any offshore race as well as the challenge of navigating the Gulf loop current.
Isla Mujeres is a beautiful tropical island with pristine sand beaches, palm trees, and crystal clear water. Don’t look for high-rise developments, as this is a very laid back, quaint island.
The Lima family has been hosting our sailors for many years and provides an elegant atmosphere in this tropical paradise.
There will be daily parties and events including beach parties, a basketball game, a Mardi Gras parade and banquets.
The events culminate Thursday night May 12th with an island soiree and awards banquet. Accommodations are provided in lovely unpretentious hotels located on the beautiful white beaches which make this island a wonderful “off the beaten path” jewel.
