CMC organizers are rolling out the Welcome Mat for Salty Dawg members as they arrive in St Maarten / St Martin to sail with us whether it be to race or to rally!
For the fifth CMC, the organizers have added a fun three-day Cruising Rally to the traditional three-day challenging Racing Format of this successful event.
The Rally will see yachts that prefer to cruise having a Pursuit Start in Simpson Bay on Friday, the 3rd and a short sail to fashionable Anse Marcel on the French side for a stop-over and an evening in the new upmarket Acasias Gallery; and a French-style BBQ at the Blue Sail.
On Saturday, vessels will then head to Sandy Ground on Anguilla for afternoon beach games, evening dinner, and entertainment at the fabulous Lit Lit on the beach; then to after-party at Elvis Beach Bar. Sunday will see a sail back to Simpson Bay to arrive in time for prize giving and a closing Gala at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club in the Lagoon.
During the same time frame multihulls that prefer to race, will enjoy three days of hot and competitive sailing on varied courses mostly on the south side of Sint Maarten; or for bigger boats on a 60 Mile Sprint around St. Barth and back; and a 52 Mile Power Reach to and around Saba and back. All racing yachts will also enjoy the challenge of the traditional around SXM race on another day.

Special CMC Benefits for Salty Dawg Multihull Entries
CMC organizers are rolling out the Welcome Mat for Salty Dawg members as they arrive in St Maarten / St Martin to sail with us whether it be to race or to rally:
Salty Dawg members who register for either the CMC to rally or to race; and who enter before December 1, 2022 will receive a 10% discount on the registration fee of only $8.00 per foot ($7.20 net).
Members who are registered for the CMC Race or Rally will receive discounted dockage at our Gold Sponsor Marina at Port De Plaisance in Cole Bay.
Rally entries who enter and pay their fee by December 1, 2022 will receive a package of benefits at the Anse Marcel Marina for a discounted price of $100.00 US regardless of size. The package includes free showers, one bag of ice per vessel, as well as free clearance in and out. Space in the marina is limited, so only the first ten boats to enter will be able to enjoy this benefit. (If marina space is already booked, the bay outside is sheltered and has good holding.)
Owners or Captains of Salty Dawg entered boats will be invited to and recognized at the exclusive ‘Owners Plus One’ party in the Asian-style Garden at the Port De Plaisance Marina; to be held on Wednesday February 1, 2023 at 5:30 pm.
CMC organizers will prepare special prizes for SDSA members who race or rally with us. Prizes will be awarded at the Sunday evening CMC Prize Giving at the SMYC beginning at 6:00pm.
SDSA members racing or rallying with the CMC will receive a complimentary membership in the CMC Sailor’s Rewards program offering special pricing on participating brands available at chandleries on St. Maarten / St. Martin.
