Re: Norwegian sailboat - Cuba to Miami - with US citizen

I would suggest you not test US Law or the various interpretations of it in this thread. It is simply not worth the hassle. I've met some US customs people who were quite nice and reasonable but I've crossed paths with some genuine morons. If you end up dealing with an idiot who knows less about his own laws than some of the posters here ..... you will lose regardless of how right you are.

Check in and out at Bimini or West End and be done with it.

Re: Norwegian sailboat - Cuba to Miami - with US citizen

Jay-Z and Beyonce had special State Department clearance to travel to Cuba. A fact that the State Department made very clear several times over. Just because it hasn't been prosecuted lately doesn't mean it won't be. In many cases, those laws are specifically left on the books to allow the authorities to hold a person suspected of more serious crimes before they have enough evidence to file those charges.
