There is an annual Tampa/Naples - Key West race in april... some mentioned using Key West as a stage stop-over and continue 90 miles or so to the south...

According to this hackfest of an article from Outside magazine (typical of them when it comes to sailing.CLUELESS!)
it's already been done. Crappy Outside article

There was a plan for a race called The Cuba Run, but it didn't happen. I've not heard if they are trying to set something up again or not. That race was from Key West to Havana and was for beach cats only.

They had the h16 race this spring.., sounded like it turned out nicely. Someone was going to write a story for the magazine, but Haven't seen it yet.
