Bristol, Rhode Island, USA – The Salty Dawg Rally (SDR), a free cruising rally that has quickly grown to be the most popular one of its kind on the U.S. East Coast, announces the fall 2013 schedule, and has attracted more than 70 registered boats already, according to Bill and Linda Knowles, co‐founders of the rally.

A day of free seminars will be held at the Mears Pavilion in Annapolis, Maryland, on Wednesday, October 9, 2013, the day before the start of the Annapolis Sailboat Show. The pavilion is a short walk from the show location. The seminar program is sponsored by Sea Hawk Paints.

This is the first annual seminar for the Salty Dawg Rally and although there is no fee to participate, attendance will be by reservation only, and is limited to 100 persons. Preference will be given first to current SDR participants (fall 2013 rally), then members from previous Salty Dawg Rallies, and finally to all other blue water sailors until the 100 person limit is met.

The October 9 time schedule, topics, and instructors are as follows:
