The Salty Dawgs made headlines last spring as they mustered a herculean effort to get cruisers home from the Caribbean amidst closed borders. Their expertise in organizing and disseminating information helped nearly 500 sailors get home safely. Now, for the second time in a year sure to be remembered more by the events canceled than the events held, the Salty Dawgs are persevering and have announced that their Fall Rally to the Caribbean is a go.
Weather permitting, departure is scheduled for November 2 from the Chesapeake Bay, and the fleet will head for Falmouth Harbour, Antigua. If the Bahamas are open to travelers, the rally will continue on to Harbour Island, Eleuthera. Of course, some of the schedule had to be updated to reflect Covid-19 concerns, including limiting social activities and swapping webinars and zoom meetings for in-person Q&A sessions. However, many benefits like fleet tracking, daily briefings, and a Government Support Unit to assist with changing restrictions, are still sure to draw plenty of sailors.
