The nonprofit Salty Dawg Sailing Association (SDSA) will launch a new cruising rally to Cuba this spring.

The Rally to Cuba has been organized to comply with current US government requirements for US vessels and citizens visiting Cuba. Vessels from other countries are also welcome to participate in this unique event.

The rally will depart Virgin Gorda in the BVI in late March and will be in Cuba April 5th –20th 2017. While most vessels will be cruising to Cuba from the BVI, others will cruise from the US East Coast and the Bahamas. The 14 day visit will support an educational-based, people-to-people exchange. The Rally complies with OFAC and US Coast Guard regulations.

The new rally is a natural, downwind passage from the Caribbean back to the US, via Cuba. In order to conduct the proper research in support of this educational activity, and with the time constraint from various regulations and American insurance companies, the rally will make landfall in Havana and conduct its research activities in Northwest Cuba. This is a large area to visit including Havana, villages and countryside on the north and south shores.

With the structured nature of the visit, in order to properly manage the activity, the rally is being limited to 24 boats.

“With the strong interest in this rally, we could have easily registered more than 75 vessels, but we need to keep this inaugural rally manageable to comply with US regulations, said Rally to Cuba director Hank George. For more information, visit: saltydawgsailing.org
