A conversation with Msc. José L Cuza Téllez de Girón

In Havana, Race for Water is still a source of curiosity and great conversations.

The crew was recently treated to a surprise: a historic visit from Rear Admiral Msc. José L Cuza Téllez de Girón, who fought alongside Raúl Castro in the Cuban revolution. He took advantage of Race for Water’s stopover in Havana to tour the ship and learn about our mission to promote renewable energy and fight plastics pollution.

In talking with the crew, Msc. José L Cuza Téllez de Girón showed great interest in the state of the world’s oceans, and the need to take action to protect them. We were able to capture the conversation on video.
