Havana regatta to race again

ADVERTISEMENT

The St. Petersburg Yacht Club plans to revive its regatta to Havana in late February.

The regatta ran annually from 1930 to 1959 but ceased when tensions with Cuba tightened. The revived regatta will follow the same 284nm trip from the yacht club to the 18th century Morro Castle at the mouth of Havana Bay.

The field is limited to 70 boats, which must be at least 30 feet long. Boaters can sign up at spyc.org. The regatta falls into one of the 12 categories that makes visitation to Cuba by Americans.
