Graphics of the Day
November 21 - La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Mexico
Today's Graphic of the Day is of something very important for sailors in Mexico, the plans for a new 350-berth marina at La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, which is about 10 miles northwest of Puerto Vallarta proper, and seven miles northwest of Marina Paradise. This marina, expected to be completed in about two years, will not so much provide competition for Marina Paradise and Marina Vallarta, which in any event are completely full during the high season, but provide enough additional berthing to catapult Banderas Bay into becoming one of the premiere sailing areas of the world. The bay has always had some of the greatest flatwater tropical sailing conditions in the world, but in two years, and particularly with the ultimate redevelopment of the delapidated Nuevo Vallarta Marina, there will be enough boats to support a host of top notch racing and cruising activities. The marina at La Cruz is going to be big in more ways than one.
Because of a short deadline for the December issue and the Thanksgiving holiday, there will not be another 'Lectronic until next Monday, November 28. Happy turkey everyone!
