visit Cuba

thinking of sailing my Morgan 33 Marathon to Cuba for up to a week of sightseeing. need 1 to split watches. extensive experience not necessary. no money but a chance to visit Cuba with no travel expenses. flexible date, am thinking mid to late July.

Re: visit Cuba

Are you a US citizen on a US documented/registered boat ? If so do you have the requisite permit ?

Re: visit Cuba

I'm an American. I need no permission. In case you missed it Bush lost and the USGC has more important things to do. the ill considered blockade (such as it was) is history.

He's going to Cuba, not China, Vietnam, Russia, Japan, Italy, Germany, England, etc., all who have shed American blood.
