Tournament Winning Fishing Captain and Accomplished Marine Artist By Dr. Martin Aróstegui

C

aptain Yuvero was born in the town of Santa Fe, Cuba in 1961. Ever since he was a child, he had a love for the sea, fishing and painting. As a young man he studied to become a fishing captain at the Naval Academy of Havana, where he graduated as Captain of Fishing and Recreational Vessels in 1995. Captain Yuvero participated many times in the historic Hemingway Billfish Tournament in Cuba and guided the French team to three first place finishes. Captain Yuvero tells me that Guy Harvey‘s work was a major inspiration to him. He studied Guy’s techniques and inspired by his

experiences in the ocean decided to work in developing his own style of Marine Art. In 1998 the Hemingway Billfish Tournament honored Captain Yuvero by commissioning him to paint the shirt logos for future tournaments. In 2006 his paintings were selected to promote the upcoming International Tourism Fair held in Havana that year. I met Captain Jorge Yuvero during my first visit to Cuba to represent the International Game Fish Association and along with my good friend Commodore Jose Miguel Diaz Escrich, have become an admirer of his beautiful paintings.
