This trip consisted of chartering a catamaran for a 6 day trip out 70 miles off the coast to the Canarreos Archipelago, plus numerous land based adventures. This Zoom meeting has been delayed a week to accomodate the election.

In April 2019 six friends with a shared sailing problem traveled together on a two week vacation to Cuba. They chartered a catamaran for a 6 day trip out 70 miles off the coast to the Canarreos Archipelago, and also visited Old Havana, the old colonial city of Trinidad, New Havana and the beautiful Vinales Valley for a horseback trip to a tobacco co-operativo. This turned out to be one of the most interesting vacations ever, because in Cuba everything is "Complicated".  

Rob and Teresa Sicade took their first sailing class with the University of Washington Yacht Club in 1992. Following graduation and a brief life in suburban Redmond, they bought a 1984 Baba40 sailboat and moved aboard at Shilshole Marina. Eight years later, after lots of international chartering, local racing, and many sailing classes, they set sail for a 4.5 year 32,000 mile loop around the Pacific. Now back home 10 years later, they're closing in on retirement and ready to head out offshore again soon on an encore voyage, once again aboard their beloved Baba40. Where the winds will take them next time is yet to be discovered!

Hope to see you there!
