The other side of Cuba – Cayman Brac – 4th May

by | May 10, 2016 | Voyage Logs

Getting my clearance to leave and talking with the immigration officer on Cayman Brac. He mentioned the Cubans that had arrived a few days ago, they have no visas so will get deported back to Cuba. Apparently 2 or 3 boats arrive in the Caymans a month, crossing over a 100 miles of open sea in what a basically just lash ups, Some he said were so bad you could see the water bubbling in through the planks. He pointed out the latest, drawn up on the rocks near the dock and said that was one of the better ones. So there are still Cubans desperate enough to leave Cuba to risk all in barely seaworthy boats.
