Salty Dawg Fall Rally Underway
Antigua will welcome the fleet with more than a week of "safe arrival" activities commencing November 14th. Even for those not sailing down in the Fall Rally, there is the option to join the fun by signing up for the Antigua Rendezvous Week.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic the SDSA has established some guidelines and protocols to ensure as best as can be done that all are participants are Covid-19 free prior to departure. These guidelines and protocols have been prepared with the assistance of medical professionals who are also long distance sailors and supplied to all entrants.
