March Is Mexico Time in the April Edition of Latitude 38

Learn more about why “March is Mexico time” in Paul Martson’s feature on the 34th running of the San Diego to Puerto Vallarta Race along the west coast of Baja, and the legendary MexORC grand-prix race week on Banderas Bay.

“Every two years, the opportunity to race a pair of extraordinary events in Mexico comes along. This is the San Diego to Puerto Vallarta Race (aka SD2PV) followed by MexORC, or Mexican Ocean Racing Circuit,” Paul wrote. “Together they are similar to doing half of a Transpac followed by a Kenwood Cup (remember those?). But at the finish you will find margaritas instead of mai tais.”
