The Salty Dawg Sailing Association (SDSA) mission is to educate sailors, build camaraderie, and facilitate offshore passages. Our goal is to conduct quality rallies with the flexibility that allows each Captain to make informed decisions, and provide all participants the best possible experience at the lowest cost. Our Refund Policy reflects this position.


If you register for a Salty Dawg Rally and must cancel your registration, refunds will be issued as follows:

  • A refund of rally fees, less $25.00 is available if you cancel more than one month before the scheduled rally departure date. 
  • Within one month of the scheduled departure, refunds are not available. You may be able to consider the unrefunded fees as a donation to the SDSA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. (Please check with your tax advisor to confirm your ability to take a tax deduction).
  • If entry into a country is not permitted due to Covid or other reasons, or the rally is cancelled, the rally fee will be refunded in total.

Exceptions due to unusual circumstances will always be considered.
