More than 130 fishermen on 24 teams took to the sea this week to participate in the 65th Ernest Hemingway International Billfishing Tournament, being held May 25-30, from Baracoa’s beach in the eastern province of Guántanamo, to the west of Havana and Guanabo, east of the capital. The Capitan of the Hemingway Nautical Club, José Miguel Díaz Escrich, expressed his satisfaction given the presence of U.S. sports fishers – authorized by the U.S. Treasury Department to participate in the competition for the first time in 35 years – including John and Patrick Hemingway, grandsons of the famous U.S. author.
