On Tuesday, three windsurfers left the north coast of Cuba with the intent of escaping to the USA. One landed in Key West, "dry foot" and so won't be repatriated to Cuba. Another was picked up by a recreational fisherman off Big Pine and may be returned. The third windsurfer is still missing and the subject of an ongoing USCG search. More details, photos, etc. at:

The third windsurfer was recovered in bad shape but alive by the USCG yesterday. More about this crossing and several others by windsurfers in the 1990's at:

Think we've got another difference to add in the 'Windsurfing vs. Kiting' post!

Happy to hear all three are safe!

Very Happy
