Our Anchorages in Cuba:

  • Santiago de Cuba
  • Chivirico
  • Marea de Portillo
  • Cabo Cruz
  • Cayo Medio Luna
  • Cayo Granada
  • Cayo Algodón Grande
  • Cayos Manuel Gomez
  • Cayo Breton, Cayos Cinco Balas
  • Estero Ingles, Cayos Cinco Balas. Again, Calders Cruising guide was obsolete. The stake that we were supposed to round at the eastern approach, is not there anymore. Instead there is a stick that proved to act as a starboard mark, which we found out the hard way by going aground trying to round it! However, we managed to get off without assistance (there was non anyway) and found our way in, going first with the dinghy. Our depth sounder showed 1,8 meters, which is the same as the depth of our keel, at what we think was about mid tide. We later also checked the southern entrance by dinghy, but did not find anything deeper than about 1,5 meters. The place is well sheltered, but as with all previous places it was a disappointment for the juniors: no real beaches, murky water, just bugs and mangroves. And to get out to the reefs for snorkeling, you need a big planing dinghy.
  • Estero las Auras, Cayos de las doce Leguas.
  • Pasa Cachiboca, Cayos de las doce Leguas.
  • Cayo Cuervo. We anchored in the northern bay off the narrow beach, sailing in on a northerly course between the "sticks and wreck" to the west and the wreck to the east. This was the first relatively decent beach we had came upon since arriving in Cuba. The beach is on the south side of a narrow spit that separates the bay from the sea to the north, which allows the breeze to blow away most of the bugs. Good holding and almost all around shelter, this anchorage is open only to the south, and even in that direction only for a mile or so. And in a southerly blow one can always re-anchor in the bay.
