The Slow Boat Sailing Podcast is in Cuba! We talk about our trip to Nueva Gerona, Cuba to Cayo Largo on the Caribbean coast of Cuba. In April before the Slow Boat set sail for Cuba, I talked to Captain Cheryl Barr who wrote the recent Cruising Guide to Cuba: Volume 1 which covers Varadero, Havana, Cabo San Antonio, Cienfuegos, and Trinidad and all the places the Slow Boat visited. Cheryl Barr has been coming to Cuba since 1996 on her parents’ schooner.
