SALTY DAWG RALLY SET FOR NOVEMBER
Wednesday 9th June 2021

The largest rally leaving the US East Coast each fall is the Caribbean Rally hosted by the Salty Dawg Sailing Association, the fleet departs from Hampton VA, at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay to head offshore to points south.  

It is not only the largest organized flotilla of cruisers leaving the US East Coast for the Caribbean—but the most fun.  The Caribbean Rally helps sailors arrive safely in the Caribbean and opens the door to new friends and experiences while cruising.

Events begin on October 28 in Hampton, VA for final boat and crew preparation, seminars, social events and weather briefings.  Departure is scheduled for Nov 2, weather permitting.  Each Captain is expected to make the best decision for his crew and boat when picking a departure date.  Passage time for boats headed to the Bahamas averages 4-6 days, and the boats traveling the 1400 NM to Antigua generally arrive in 10-14 days.

Both VHF radio and offshore communications equipment are required.
