Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Lets get this straight.

Spanish speaking, Caribbean, Capital city thereof ....

There are only three possibilities ... Puerta Rica, Dominican Republic and Cuba.

Crikey!

You should, have read the hint from Faster!

Marina Hemmingway is 9nm west of Havana and is the only marina where foreigners are allowed to dock.
The 650 meter cut through coral is, to put it mildly, treacherous. Maybe Fidel is hoping for more USA boats to come in?

The marina has 400 berths but almost all are non functioning. There is a handful of international cruisers there are any one time... Surprisingly few from the USA! Canadians make up the bulk, and Europeans. But generally the tourist population is German.

It costs cruisers ten times what it costs locals... For anything, food, resturanst , anything.
So with that channel, those costs and the Embargo no one much goes to. Cuba.

OK TDW congratulations! it's your go!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yeah , well I go hopelessly muddled with definition of the Americas and then thinking capital city was starring at Havana harbor and thinking now way does that match.

Anywho ... anyone in the general visit of Sea Life fee free to take Mark out the back and give him a severe talking to.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I couldn't make it too easy for you
But I was a bit surprised it took so long. But then again, very few people go there. I haven't been yet, but I have researched it so its familiar. Gotta remember, as Faster intimated, none of our USA fiends would recognize it. But also the charts are mold, wrong, or just don't have it marked!

By the way, you were missing clues... The clue wasnt the America's, the clue was IALA B

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I thought I got Faster's clue, and went looking at Havana and didn't find it. Maybe I should be working rather than scouring Google Maps for marinas in Central American capitals. I'm learning a lot, though. Thank you!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'll leave this for someone who hasn't stared at that photo for hours having imaginings. :-)

...and I'll go do some work, honest.
