PAPERS FROM THE 2017 RALLY TO CUBA

CUBA TODAY – Twenty Three Boats and One Hundred Twenty Four Sailors Participated in the 2017 Salty Dawg Rally to Cuba.  These sailors conducted research in numerous topics of interest to future visitors to Cuba, and those interested about Cuba today.  The results of their research are documented in these summary papers.  These sailors were able to roam and interview Cubans directly, visit their shops and farms, and were not spoon fed the propaganda other US visitors receive in their Cuban Government run educational sessions, or guided by Cuban Government “tour guides.” The papers provide a wealth of original material from these Salty Dawg sailors.  Enjoy and let your friends know of this resource.
