Salty Dawg Rally Benefits

When you join a SDSA rally, discounts and special promotions from our Corporate Partners abound. In most cases, you can take advantage of the discounts by flying your rally flag or showing your rally card.  Where special promo codes or instructions are required, you will be directed to a password-protected area of our web site.


During each passage, free daily weather forecast & routing advice, via SSB and e-mail are a hallmark of all SDSA rallies. For the Fall Rally to the Caribbean, Chris Parker broadcasts live, interactive daily weather webcasts as part of the Hampton VA pre-departure schedule. Our weather service is sponsored by Bluewater Sailing Magazine.



We are grateful to Bluewater Sailing Magazine for sponsoring our weather services. In addition, each boat owner and all crew members can look forward to a free one year digital subscription to BWS magazine.
