Sailing To Cuba

Sailing To Cuba - Photo Gallery

A photo gallery of the amazing moments aboard Anastasia while sailing to Cuba, a voyage full of adventures.

The voyage to Cuba was to me as at that time a very big disappointment. Not because I didn’t like it, but because I was seeing everything as a big fail in my sailing adventures. I knew I will not be able to continue sailing around the world as I wanted to… and that hurt a lot.

Sailing To Cuba – The Short Story

The plan was to sail to the Bahamas and spend more time there to recover from the financial problems I was having at that time, prepare the boat a little more, then sail to Guatemala. Then I would spend even more time there preparing the boat for the voyage around the world. Unfortunately I made a wrong decision to sail to Cuba instead, then continue South all the way to St. Maarten.

The more I was sailing, the more I started to realize that my adventure will have to end soon. This made me appreciate everything a lot more. So at the end I discovered that there was no fail at all. It’s all part of the adventure and it’s important to realize when and where you have to stop before things become dangerous. I’ve met the most amazing people in Cuba, I made great friends from Canada and they will all be part of my family in my heart for a lifetime.

I could continue the story here, but I will let you enjoy the photos for now, and have you try to imagine the entire adventure. You will get to hear it all and see it all soon in the Traveling With The Wind documentary.
