Re: Pensacola a la Habana Rally - Underway

They have a really bad website. Another thread was started about this a few weeks ago by a guy that had entered.

I'm sorta surprised they are running the race during hurricane season. It's sorta amazing how partisan going to Cuba was just a few years ago, but now it seems like everyone wants to go. Unless you are running for election and looking for votes in S Florida, you're fine with all this. A few years ago, any republican would "not want or give Castro the satisfaction" of visiting Cuba.

One can only hope many other formally taboo realities will be "normalized"

Re: Pensacola a la Habana Rally - Underway

I've got a friend aboard a 46' Leopard doing the race. It's Hurricane season that's true, but plenty of bail out spots along the way. I know during the heat of Summer it seems there is very little breeze on that route

The leopard 46 is a nice sailing condo cat. I tried to find an entry list on that website with no luck. Maybe it works better with a windows product.

Re: Pensacola a la Habana Rally - Underway

That's why I saw all the sailboats on Pensacola Bay Saturday morning! I live here and did not know about this.

Looks like an awesome trip. Weather was somewhat nasty here late Saturday into the night. Looking at the tracking page, it looks like some of them got/getting a taste of the gusty conditions.

Good luck to the fleet!
