With Your Help, The BVI Can Look Like This Again

By - 13/09/2017

Our hearts and prayers are with the people of the Virgin Islands as they recover from the devastating blows of Hurricane Irma. We know the resilience of our friends in the Caribbean and have seen them reconstruct their beautiful islands after the tropical devastation in the past.

Since the images of the havoc caused by Hurricane Irma have emerged, Salty Dawgs around the world have united their voices in a single plea....

What Can We Do To Help!

In response, the Salty Dawg Sailing Association, a 501(c)(3) volunteer-run organization, has established the tax-deductible Salty Dawg BVI Relief Fund. We encourage you to contribute. Our volunteers are working with local BVI Rotary and similar groups to channel 100% of your contributions to those suffering most. Rotary operates a very strong network in the islands and is focused on the grass roots needs of the people. The Contributions will be distributed to local groups in cash or with needed emergency material and supplies. Neither SDSA nor local Rotary groups apply any administrative fees to distribution of these funds.
Our focus is on the British Virgin Islands, as the damage there is quite severe and because we have had a long relationship with residents of these islands. Opportunities for Salty Dawg Fall Rally vessels to transport supplies will be evaluated as the situation on the islands becomes clearer.

Please consider donating to the Salty Dawg BVI Relief fund!

And be sure to share this appeal with your sailing friends and other "Friends of the BVI" who may wish to contribute.
