Have you made your plans for accommodations in Cabo yet? If not, might be time to start thinking about this. The Accommodations Page on the NHYC Cabo Website shows some local places to stay, as well as the event venues.
The Temporary Import Permit (TIP) is now an enforced requirement for bringing a boat to Mexico. It is strongly suggested that all boats participating in the NHYC Cabo Race have a current TIP. Instructions for obtaining a TIP is on the NHYC Cabo website here. It’s not difficult to do and can be obtained relatively quickly, but best to get this handled early. The TIP lasts for 10 years.
