Salty Dawgs

What's a Salty Dawg?  It is a rally for cruising boats.  What's a rally?  A rally is essentially an organization that helps boats get from point A to point B, usually covering a great distance, together as a group.  Sometimes a rally is a race and sometimes it is just for fun.

We have joined the Salty Dawg Rally this year to get from Hampton, VA. to Tortola, BVI.  The Salty Dawg Rally is in it's second year with 50+ boats.  Not too shabby considering they had 33 boats last year.  Bill and Linda Knowles, along with their Jack Russell Terrier, Brie, organize this amazing circus of activity.  I don't know how they do it, but it awe inspiring.  Check out their website to see all that we gained from joining.
