Any bets on how well this boat can point?

This was listed today on 'lectronic latitude:

Latitude 38 - The West's Premier Sailing & Marine Magazine

It appears to have a mast and a boom, although they may only have been used as hand grips.

After comparing this "boat" with mine (Dragonfly 1000 at my own dock) and my life where I have a house and a good part time job, I'm speechless...

Yes sad, but as perhaps very few of the American members/readers have been to Cuba, for reasons I wont go into, you would more than understand especially if you had visited Havana why you would want to get out anyway you could.
They appear happy enough, have free medical care, good education but still live in poor conditions with very limited choice.
What a great place it could be when Castro and his brother go and the communism ceases - yet that's another story.
My visit was certainly very interesting and educational.

Yep!

Some people are still willing to risk their life for freedom!

I'm fully aware of why they escape, and I have empathy for them.
Remember Ellian Gonzalez and that pathetic President and Secretary of State we had at the time? Oh, yeah, this board isn't supposed to be political.
Never mind...
