The 2016 Spring Rally departs the BVI on May 15 to head to various ports on the East Coast of the US or to Bermuda. Salty Dawg Rallies place an emphasis on fun, safety and building lasting friendships. They are a great way to meet other cruisers, and to sail offshore in company.
You can register for the Rally and participate in all events at no fee. However, joining the Rally as a Member entitles you to many other benefits. Most participants also join as Members to support the Rally and to take advantage of these added benefits.
The Rally includes extensive planning and information prior to departure. Daily briefings by weather router and forecaster Chris Parker are provided to all who register, both before departure and offshore. For 2016 the Rally has expanded the set of activities at both Virgin Gorda North Sound and at Nanny Cay prior to departure. In North Sound, Virgin Gorda the Spring Rally will include a gathering for the Michael Beans pirate show, and on another day enjoy watching the Moko Jumbies perform at the Leverick bay Resort. Then Salty Dawgs can stretch their legs with a scavenger hunt and savor a great departure dinner at the Bitter End Yacht Club. This will be followed at Nanny Cay Marina with a pizza party, a beach BBQ, Chris Parker weather briefings, and final preparations before departure on May 15th. It is a full agenda before departure.
Offshore Dawgs stay in regular communication to assist each other if necessary, receive Chris Parker’s daily weather updates, and celebrate arrival for those whose destination is the Chesapeake Bay. Register now for the 2016 Salty Dawg Spring Rally!
