If you are interested in sailing to Mexico, next Friday, April 23rd, marks the beginning of the 63rd Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race, the word’s largest international yacht race. So far there are 210 yachts registered for this year’s event.

The race takes sailors 125 miles from Newport, California to Ensenada, Mexico on the Baja California peninsula. This year’s winner will be awarded a $6,000 watch from Lamborghini.

Non-racers can enjoy the event as well by taking the three day cruise with Carnival Cruise. Passengers pass the sailboats and end up with the ultimate view for the finish of the race. More information can be found at the race’s website, and below is a video about the race.
