I have Sailed to Cuba six times

One of the best places I have been in the world, people are fantastic, city is like said on this forum breathtaking.

It will be a sad day when star bucks sells trash garbage coffee on the streets of Havana but it will happen,

Go to Cuba if you can as fast as you can, period end of story. Last trip sailed a Pearson Triton alone to Cuba. it was to ruff to go into Marina Hemingway, the Cubans let me sail past Morrow Castle into the Havana Harbor, along came a ancient diesel sub in the Harbor. Like in the movies,.

My Cuban friends are great, it is said at least one person is lost at sea every day in an attempt to get to America, I think its is true so sad.

On my return to Key West, a Cuban Gun boat with defector military men tied up to the wharf, they threw their guns on shore and asked for directions to the police, classic just classic.

God Speed go just go

Popeye






Good luck
