Salty Dawg Rally

Spring 2016 Salty Dawg Rally To Depart BVI May 15

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS - The Spring 2016 Salty Dawg Rally™ for experienced blue water sailors will depart Tortola in the British Virgin Islands for the Chesapeake and other points north May 15, following a series of social events at the Bitter End Yacht Club and Leverick Bay Resort in Virgin Gorda Sound and at Nanny Cay Marina in Tortola.

Many yachts in the Caribbean choose to head to the East Coast of the US to avoid the hurricane risk in the Caribbean over the summer. Salty Dawg sailors will explore the East Coast this summer and return to the Caribbean this fall. The Fall Rally departs Hampton, Virginia in early November and arrives in Virgin Gorda Sound later in the month.

Over 470 boats and more than 1,880 sailors have participated in the Salty Dawg rallies since the nonprofit organization was founded in 2011. The Spring and Fall Rallies provide an extensive range of support and services at no cost to participants due to the many seasoned blue water sailors who volunteer their time to staff the rally and the generously donated time, products, services and funds from over 40 sponsors. Sailors also have the opportunity to gain access to further benefits in the Spring and Fall Rallies for a nominal fee.
