Salty Dawg Sailing Association raises $30,000 for BVI Hurricane relief

The Salty Dawg™ Sailing Association (SDSA) presented a check for $10,000 to the management of the Bitter End Yacht Club to be placed in the qualified 501(c)(3) BEYC Employees’ Relief Fund at the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis. The contribution will help the employees of the Bitter End Yacht Club rebuild their lives.

The remainder of the contributed funds (nearly $20,000), were transferred to the BVI Rotary Clubs to fund repairs to the Ebenezer Thomas Primary School in Sea Cow Bay, Tortola.

“On behalf of the people of the BVI, we thank you and the donors for the efforts that you are making to help with the restoration of lives in BVI following the devastation caused by the hurricanes and floods this year,” said Rotary District 7020 Past District Governor Vance Lewis.

Replying to Mr Lewis, SDSA Vice President & an SDSA founder Linda Knowles, said, “After years of support from the BVI for our events in the islands, we were pleased to be able to give back in their time of need. We sincerely hope that our contributions will make a difference.”
