It is about time that U.S. should change its policy towards Cuba. I heard lot of good things from those who have visited there. I want to sail over there. Last year, I was just less than 1.5 nm from Cabo San Antonio, very quiet and desolate.
Yes, Cuba is a marvelous place, well worth seeing... However, while there are numerous compelling reasons why our long-standing policy deserves to be consigned to the trash bin, I'm not sure that better enabling the USCG to rescue yachties to the south of the island deserves to be anywhere near the top of the list... (grin)

Little reason you can't sail to Cuba today, just find yourself some Canadian crew, or anyone holding a non-US passport, to 'host' your trip...

Or, barring that, you could always ask Beyonce & Jay-Z if they'd like to go back... (grin)
