Small flotilla leaves Miami to show support for Cuban people

Alain Dennes waits in his boat with an American Flag and a Cuban flag flying from fishing poles as other boats arrive at Miami’s Bayside marina on Friday, July 23, 2021 and prepare for a voyage to the closest point they can get to off of the coast of Cuba. The small group of 5 boats left early Friday, first stopping in Key West where they were hoping to meet up with other boaters in an effort to show support to the Cuban people on the island facing hardships.
