A new rally for experienced cruisers aptly named “The Salty Dog Rally” has been organized by cruiser Bill Knowles, who has more than 50,000 nautical miles under his belt. Bill and his cohorts originally planned to depart from the Bluewater Yachting Center in Hampton, Virginia on November 1st for the fall passage south, but have pushed their departure date to Wednesday, November 9th due to weather. The Salty Dog Rally will follow the NARC Rally’s format of being free. Participants receive discounted dockage in Hampton Roads and at Nanny Cay in Tortola, an offshore rally net, and potluck socials. There are already 31 boats participating with a few having already left yesterday, but if you’d like to join in on the fun or want more information, contact Bill at 401-252-1572 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
