LA Times reported 2 days ago about another group that just made the Florida Straits crossing from Cuba. The writer made the mistake of stating that it had been 20 years since this has been done, but we know that our beloved Raydel Armas did it just 10 years ago! (We'll see if writing to the author and the Times can get their article corrected. Raydel, a great guy, cannot ever be forgotten!)

Lester Moreno Perez made the same sailboard escape from Cuba, in 1990 at the age of 17.

And here's an interesting blog about Raydel Armas with some fantastic pictures from Cuba. It looks like he was serving in the U.S. Army, in Afghanistan, in 2012. http://hitthewave.wordpress.com/2012/04/22/1984/#comment-1743
