The successful arrival of 52 cruising boats and over 200 skippers and crew on the Salty Dawg Sailing Association’s (SDSA) Fall Rally in mid-November marked the unofficial beginning the Antigua & Barbuda’s yachting season. In recognition of this, Antigua Port Officer for the SDSA, Bob Osborn, was honored with the nation’s Faithful and Meritorious Service Medal – Gold award. During a formal ceremony, Antigua & Barbuda’s Governor-General Sir Rodney Williams noted that for the past five years the rally and Osborn’s dedication have made a significant contribution to the local yachting industry and the local economy. Osborn gratefully accepted on behalf of the SDSA’s members, volunteers, sponsors and friends.
