Cuba video to benefit Florida charity

The Sailing Channel released a video, "Cuba: Forbidding … Forbidden," from which some sale proceeds will go to programs sponsored by the Sarasota (Fla.) Yacht Club Charitable Foundation. The foundation is a sponsor of the Sarasota-Havana Regatta, which is set for May 16.

The money will help fund the Sarasota Youth Sailing Program and the Youth Sailing Program of the Hemingway International Yacht Club of Cuba.

The video features noted Canadian sailing writer and professional charter skipper Wally Moran and is an expanded version of a seminar he gave at the 2009 U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis.

The Sarasota-Havana Regatta is the first to be held between U.S. and Cuban yacht clubs in many years. More than 100 sailboats are expected to race.
