347--Mexcio: Banderas Bay Regatta 2006 on Profligate
@ CherieSpotting     Apr 07 2006 - 07:39 PST
cherie writes: The crew of Profligate headed out to Banderas Bay for 3-days of racing and 4-days of parties. "Gentlemen, start your livers," joked Rennie who trimmed the 63-ft catamaran's jib sheet. In Mexico, the racing crews learn how to drink beer fast and tequila right: no salt, no lime and no faces.

But, the Banderas Bay Regatta is more than a bunch of sailors gulping grog. In 3-days of racing, Profligate sailed to a 1st place finish overall in her division and a 2nd place finish in the costume contest. Click here to see the official results We actually won $600 in the costume contest! Here are our crew's photos from the Banderas Bay Regatta 2006:
