Flags are set!

Most of the boats in our rally group participated in a “Parade of Vessels” along the Malecon and El Morro Castle led by none other than Commodore Escrich of the famed Hemingway Yacht Club!

Havana!

We traveled east toward Havana Harbor.

Everyone line up nicely, now. Maintain tight intervals.

We entered the harbor and traveled a short distance before turning around. As we turned around, El Morro, came into view.

Pork, anyone?

After the parade, we were treated to a party of music, food and cocktails. This was a great way to meet many of the other sailors taking part.

The music was pretty good – an all female band!

We just couldn’t get enough of the sunsets.

Below is some video taken during the day.

All in all, it was a good day!

Adios.
