There are lots of reasons to become a member of the Salty Dawg Sailing Association but the best reason right now is that we are expecting a record number of boats in our rally to the Caribbean this fall and everyone is looking for crew.
With more than 100 boats heading south with the rally this year, every day our crew forum (available to members only) has new postings for crew positions, both experienced and those new to blue water sailing. What better way to build valuable experience than to participate in the largest rally to the Caribbean from the US East Coast.
Boats will be heading to both Antigua, our primary destination, as well as The Bahamas.
There will be pre-departure events in Hampton, VA and Newport, RI well as arrival events at both destinations. In particular, arrival events in Antigua begin on November 12th and run daily through Thanksgiving. All are very reasonably priced and many are free to all.
Our many volunteers strive to transfer knowledge and skills from veteran “Salty Dawgs” to less experienced cruisers, enabling independent decision-making and offshore confidence.
If you are planning your first ocean passage and can’t wait to explore new worlds or are an old salt and want to share your knowledge with others, membership in the Salty Dawg Sailing Association is perfect for you.
