Please note: Strict rules and entry requirements still exist, and tight controls by the Cuban government of all economic activity, particularly international visitation, place uncommon guidelines on all matters of entry, commerce, and daily activities of visiting groups. Even the acquisition of high octane fuel and adequate marine services remain a large void in our boating agenda, therefore all participants must be prepared, and come prepared, to deal with any mechanical issues or fuel octane needs, so that they can return to Florida safely.

For these reasons, FPC had to adopt a new event model entirely, with a registration cap of under twenty boats, a limited agenda of just two nights, and a fixed room inventory of only 50 hotel rooms. Additionally, all activities of our attendees, from arrival at Marina Hemingway, to dining plans, tours & activities, and hotel accommodations, are under the close scrutiny of the Cuban government, and the designated tour company that is managing our agenda.
