"I'll probably move my boat back to Fla. or down to Texas coast once Cuba is opened back up. You could spend many, many months just sailing around that island going bay to bay, fishing or diving spot, etc. All in our backyard. You betcha!"
"Lake sailor" for well over 20 years, but have charter and offshore experience. Moved from 23.5 to 28.5 to 35.5 sailboats during those years.

Lake Travis, Austin,TX
Catalina Island, San Diego Bay, Pensacola, Panama City Beach, St. Andrew Bay, Port St. Joe, Charlotte Harbor, BVI., most all the Windward and Leeward Islands down to Grenada...Bequia is a favorite.
