This November, the 16t annual “North American Rally to the Carribean" will depart from Newport Rhode Island. NARC is a free-to-join rally that is intended those sailing to the Caribbean for the winter. This year, those joining the rally will be able to enjoy a free part at the St. Maarten Yacht Club, a first for NARC.
In addition, participants will get a chance to experience something called a “Yachtie Appreciation Week” in Dominica, thanks to the Dominica Portsmouth Association of Yacht Services. The appreciation week offers rally goers a free mooring to celebrate the installation of a new mooring field, as well as discounted tours and nightly gatherings.
