• Blind American attempts Cuba-to-US kayak crossing


    HAVANA: A 56-year-old blind American set off in a kayak Friday in an attempt to cross the treacherous Florida Straits that separate Cuba and the United States. Peter Crowley left Havana at 12:35 pm (1635 GMT) in his red boat, accompanied by his son who is guiding him from a separate blue kayak. As he forges the 90-mile (150-kilometer) stretch of shark-infested waters in a push to reach Key West, Florida within 24 hours, a catamaran sailboat will also be following along.
