Dear Friend of CHARIAD:

My talk, with a slide show, on our Sail of Discovery from Key West to Havana is this Thursday evening.

Sail of Discovery – Key West to Havana


Thursday, October 10, 2019


7:00 PM


Boston Yacht Club: One Front Street, Marblehead, MA

Probably can park in the BYC parking lot.

BYC’s Rick Williams and crew from his sailboat CHARIAD sailed from Key West to Havana earlier this year. Rick will tell the story of their Sail of Discovery and share pictures from Key West, the sail across the Gulf Stream, and Havana. Join other BYC members and their guests Thurs. Oct. 10 for a fascinating description of Havana today. Cigars, 1950’s Chevies, beautiful beaches, crumbling buildings, 500 years of history, and music are Cuba today. Rick’s adventure was one of the last private American sailing visits permitted to Cuba before the recent travel ban.

The BYC has opened the program to non-members.

I hope you will come to hear our story.

The crew included Chris Hardy, Steve Perry, Peter Crawley, and Mike Chester from the CHARIAD team.

The BYC has not set up a non-member registration. Just come and join the fun. Cash bar.

Hope to see you there.
