Wow, visit Cuba. That is pretty cool.
Great to hear Sequoia! I also think the Meetup group in the area is a great idea!
I initially joined when I lived in Texas, lost touch with Ray about doing some fundraising/presentations at yacht clubs there, but never got materials to use in presentations - at the time, he was still working on them. Meanwhile, I've relocated to SW FL (Cape Coral) and am still getting settled in and job hunting, but wanted to get back in touch with the group.
While I may not be able to do any sailings for now (WAH!), I have started networking with several yacht clubs in the area and joined some local sailing organizations. I would love to get back on track to spread the word about the wonderful work IRG does and hopefully crew in the next few years.
