The Salty Dawg Sailing Association is a vibrant organization that helps sailors develop blue water sailing skills. Through our Membership and donations we undertake projects to help the distant communities our member sailors visit.  The SDSA is a qualified* tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit therefore donations are tax deductible. In the past we have taken on a wide range of projects to help sailors and communities.  Here are just some:

  • Repaired docks and moorings in Dominica following Tropical Storm Erika
  • Donated $10,000 to the Bitter End Employee Relief Fund following Hurricane Irma, for housing repairs
  • Painted a school house in Portsmouth, Dominica
  • Renovated a shelter and children’s center in Mahaut, Dominica
  • Carried relief supplies to the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian
  • Conducted the volunteer-run Homeward Bound Flotilla helping over 180 boats get their boats and crew safely to the USA from the Caribbean during the COVID-19 virus pandemic sweeping the world
  • Hosted over 25 low cost seminars and talks to help sailors further develop blue water sailing fundamentals
  • Hosted over 25 major, low cost sailing rallies since founding, with over 5,000 sailors
