From a far away island…

We grew up in Havana, Cuba. We lived through the 70′s, survive the 80′s and finally in 1990 immigrated to Canada. Dreams come true!

Looking back we now can honestly say that living in Cuba was an unforgettable experience.

We were in our teens when had the opportunity to go sailing from Varadero, Cuba, around the beautiful and untouched cays in the area. We were hooked! We felt in love with the fresh air, the fresh food, the freedom of exploring and the virgin beaches. Our dream of owning a sailboat and sailing freely was on hold for the obvious reason that in Cuba that’s impossible.

In 1990 we immigrated to Canada….and the dream was revived! Hector took all the navigation courses available through the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron. He went all the way to celestial navigation. I (Lenka) did take some courses too, but being a hand on person I am learning by doing.

In 2010 and after a lot of research and searches for a sailboat that can takes us to blue waters and across oceans we finally found our dream sailboat, our floating home and we started sailing in Lake Ontario in preparation for our journey.
