Racing to Cuba on C&C 30 One Design
The inaugural Conch Republic Cup race from Key West to Cuba onboard Bobsled, a new C&C 30 One Design, was truly a cultural exchange through sport. History is being made everyday with relations normalizing between the two countries and sailing is the perfect way to reconnect these two lands.
This will not be the first time the CRC has raced to Cuba but it will be the first time with government approval. Our goal is to provide a world class format for racers to have a challenging race across the Gulf Stream to Cuba.
Key West and Havana have shared a long maritime connection. It has been a unique relationship not shared with the the rest of the US. We are positioning this race on the Jan 2016 calendar hoping to attract racers who have just completed Key West Race Week (KWRW) and racers on their way to the Caribbean racing season. It is an opportunity not to be missed!
