Passing Cuba

Suppose I leave from Florida to Cancun, passing Cuba on the way. If I don''t plan to stop in Cuba, is there a certain distance from shore I should maintain so I do not need to check in with los officiales? I''m not so much concerned with them, as I am with the feds fining me when I get back.

Its the feds problem, its there ******* embargo. Cubans are people, cant go there, just bring a machine gun, shoot the feds, coastguard, ect.

I would stay a good 20nm out. If you are not going to Cuba why worry about the feds. I would worry more about the Cubanos. A few years back I went as crew on a friends boat to Isla Mujeres. The "green boats" came and advised us we were within the 12 mile limit. Nothing happened but they had MACHINE GUNS and no cigars.

He did.

This is the young man who wants to drop out of school and go to work to save enough money to buy a sailboat on which to live his life at sea if only he can find a way to cover the expense.

I sailed to Cuba. It is not illegal to go there. It is illegal to spend money there. It was one of the best times of my life. They do not stamp your passport, so you can come back to the States via the Bahamas or Mexico and never have a problem. As for the moron Jeffamc, why don''t you go back to your mother''s breast,little boy. I just came from there. You can have it back. Stop crying !
