The Salty Dawg Rally organization announces a name change, to the Salty Dawg Sailing Association (SDSA).
“The Salty Dawg Board of Directors decided to make the change to reflect the broader scope of activities that the organization now undertakes in promoting long-distance sailing and cruising,” said co-founder Bill Knowles.
What began as a single rally to the Caribbean with a small group of sailors in 2011 has grown to now conducting each year several premier rallies, world class sailing seminars and numerous rendezvous of serious sailors, gathering in the US and in the Caribbean at well attended events.
The Fall Rally to the Caribbean is the largest rally on the east coast of the US, with 80 to over 100 boats participating each year. Seminars are attended by large groups. Various rendezvous regularly attract 100 sailors.
The new Salty Dawg Sailing Association now offers memberships to those interested in blue water sailing and adventure cruising. The camaraderie and friendships that are built from Association activities are both infectious and legendary.
“The best way to be a part of these activities, share in the fun, develop your sailing skills and knowledge, participate in sailing adventures, fly the Salty Dawg burgee, serve as crew, learn from our newsletter, or just help fellow serious sailors, is to join our new organization,” Bill Knowles said.
The annual membership fee is $75 per year for a family, couple or single. Members receive significant discounts on all SDSA activities.
