Guadalupe “Lupe” Dipp is one of the loft owners of Ullman Sails Puerto Vallarta. Lupe, introduced to sailing as a child by her older brother, prolifically sailed dinghies growing up and fell in love with the sport.
A founding member of Vallarta Yacht Club, Lupe cruised extensively aboard her Catana 47 over a period of 10 years. Her cruising travels have taken her all over the world – including through the Panama Canal, to Europe and Hawaii – making her an expert in offshore sailing.
Lupe started racing the more she immersed herself in sailing. Her brother owned a large Swan and she joined his team to sail in two Transpacific Yacht Races. Recently Lupe became the owner of the Varianta 44 “Nueva Luna” where you can often find her either on a relaxing cruise on Bahia de Banderas or racing in local regattas. Lupe won first in class on “Nueva Luna” with her son Rodrigo at the 2016 MEXORC regatta.
