COJIMAR, Cuba - Ernest Hemingway's grandsons sailed into the fishing village that inspired "The Old Man and the Sea" on Monday in a campaign to save game fish like the giant marlin that dragged the fictitious Santiago out to sea.



More than 100 townspeople, including cheering schoolchildren, greeted the Hemingways' yacht as it sailed into Cojimar from the Hemingway Marina on Havana's western edge.



They laid flowers at a bust of "Papa," who spent years in Cuba, including long stretches in Cojimar, the unnamed hometown of the protagonist in "The Old Man and the Sea." The work won Hemingway the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1953 and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature a year later.
