In SLOW BOAT TO CUBA, the author wants to start his round the world trip by sailing to the Panama Canal before hurricane season. Unfortunately, a 50-year old embargo, wild currents, and adverse winds and waves stand in this American sailor’s way. This is the story of how he overcame government road blocks and sailed offshore to the forbidden paradise of Cuba. He stops at the remote west coast and southern barrier islands fighting human and nautical obstacles to get a clear path to Panama.

Head to the remote and forgotten west coast of Cuba aboard a 31ft sailboat. Great sailing story!

Not particularly well written or conceived!
22 April 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
I thought this book was more the author's crazy mistakes than anything else, like his construction of a support for his solar panels without having it welded together. He clearly doesn't know a lot about yachting. I also thought that his stop at Cuba on his way to Panama from New Orleans was unnecessary and iladvised (even though I love Cuba). I didn't think the book was well written at all--the author should stick to mathematics.
The Slow Boat visits Cuba: Check it Out!

After reading and enjoying Slow Boat to the Bahamas (Bahamas), I was eager to read Slow Boat to Cuba (Cuba) the next installment in Linus' journeys. As with Bahamas, Cuba provides Linus' distinctive experiences. As with Bahamas, Cuba is a diary-like travelogue; progressing linearly, Linus dwells here and there on joys or challenges encountered along the way. The serial dunking and near dunkings of his beloved iPhone being a case in point. If, like me, you contemplate the possibility of possibly sailing to Cuba, this book will be of interest. That I own an Island Packet 31, similar to Linus' slow boat, affords me an additional layer of interest in Linus' exploits. I appreciate the insights he provides regarding how to configure and manage our boat. That said, it is important to be clear on what this book is not. Slow Boat is Linus sharing his experiences; the good, the bad and the occasionally humorous. This book is not a how to sail to Cuba, it is not a how to cruise guide, nor is it a how to manual for navigating the myriad legal hurdles that must be cleared to sail to or visit Cuba. It is a fun read. I look forward to Linus' next installment. Will it be Slow boat to Panama? NOTE: This review is based on a pre-publication review copy kindly provided by Linus.
