Salty Dawgs Arrive in Caribbean

The most challenging aspect of this year’s rally was clearly the ability of COVID 19 and cruisers to congregate and enter foreign lands. Social distancing was the rule of the day as they took a safe approach to managing risk. Pre-rally social activities normally scheduled for Hampton, Virginia, have been put on hold for the year, and usual seminars in the Hampton area have been handled through webinar and Salty Dawg advisory emails. The rally organizers and staff on land worked to ensure that the new and seasoned cruisers knew the protocols for pre-departure quarantine, PCR testing, and entry into Antigua.
