Salty DawgsThe Salty Dawg Sailing Associations, for the first time, plans a rally from Maine to Nova Scotia.

The Salty Dawg Sailing Association (SDSA) invites all sailors to join a cruising rally from the Chesapeake to Maine andthen, for the first time, a second rally from Maine to Nova Scotia.

The Salty Dawg Rally to Maine will leave the Chesapeake Bay on July 8 and the Rally to Nova Scotia will leave Rockland, Maine on August 8. Stops along the way to enjoy quaint villages, local cuisine and maritime lore are part of each rally.

"We are excited about extending the reach of our rallies this summer, returning for the third year to Maine and then adding a new rally to Nova Scotia's Bras d'Or Lakes," said SDSA Director of Rally Management Rick Palm. "With Sailing CBI, Inc. as our host in Canada, the Rockland Yacht Club as our host in Maine, and veteran Salty Dawgs volunteering to help along the way, we are confident that both rallies will provide unforgettable experiences for everyone who joins in the fun."
