I talk to Addison Chan who was in Hemingway Marina in Havana, Cuba. Addison Chan sails with his wife of 38 years Patricia on their 1999 Catalina 42 MK II, Threepenny Opera. He has circumnavigated Cuba and has traveled by land and sea through each of Cuba’s fifteen provinces. His pictures have been featured in the Cruising Guide to Cuba,Volume 1 by Captain Cheryl Barr and many other cruising publications. In this first part of my interview, Addison talks about communications in Cuba and his early cruising in 2008 and why he first visited Cuba in 2011. It was for the food!
I talk about the recent changes to the emergency declaration with respect to Cuba and conclude that it probably does not reduce the hoops that American boaters must go through to sail legally to Cuba. I also update the listeners on some of my recent boat projects.
