Re: Cuba - Warning non-American boats

Funny thing if you are Cuban/American you can fly to Cuba from Ft. Lauderdale bringing goods and money to family members, but if you are just American you can't go to Cuba at all without a spcial permit.

Re: Cuba - Warning non-American boats

Being a US citizen (a quite obvious one) I have traveled to Canada, UK and Spain within the last few years.

Not once was I treated with disrespect and just about everyone went out of their way to help me. I felt very welcome in all these places. Of course everywhere has a bad spot, but there are plenty here too.

I do not understand why several people on this forum feel the need to remind what one country did for/to the other in the past.

So I'm with Nemo55 enough with the country bashing.

Re: Cuba - Warning non-American Boats

did we ever determine if it was Ok for a non-US boat to stop in Cuba and then sail to the USA?

just a YES/NO answer is needed

We have a winner!!

That is the general rule today. There are complications, and if a US official wanted to hassle the boat even after 180 days there are (legal) ways they could.

Re: Cuba - Warning non-American Boats

It's a little late I suppose but I've cleaned up this thread and turned on the hot topic warning in case some of you aren't finished with the politics. Based on the topic and disrespect being shown I'll presume you forgot where you are or what the rules are so now you know again and there is no excuse.

I am expecting either a cookie or a gold star in the mail

Re: Cuba - Warning non-American Boats

Okay both me and the other half are British, the boat is British registered. We have been to Cuba, 2009 and 2011.

Obtained our B1/2 visas in Cuba, Havana. sailed on to Florida in 2011. Immigration a little hostile but no problems.

We produced zarpe from Cayman Islands, no passport stamps in Cuba.Nobody questioned the difference in dates.

We saw a number of US registered boats on the south side of Cuba. We met US citizens who were working in colleges and hotels in Cuba.

The dive resort at Maria La Gorda, in 2009, was full of US holidaymakers, they flew to Mexico first and then on to Havana.

Cuba is a gem, the waters on the south coast are pristine, the fishing is unbelievable and the people are delightful.

Go now before it opens up to the USA and changes forever :-)
