The Salty Dawg Rally announced the schedule for the annual Fourth of July Rendezvous in Bristol, R.I., and said registration for the fall rally is now open.

The Salty Dawg Rally is a cruising rally, and online registration is available at the SDR website.

“This year will be our fourth annual Fourth of July Rendezvous in Bristol, R.I., which hosts the longest continuous running Fourth of July celebration in the nation,” Salty Dawg Rally co-founder Linda Knowles said in a statement.

“The rendezvous is opened not only to the Salty Dawgs, but to all bluewater sailors interested in learning more about the rally,” Knowles said. “We are excited to have Ocean Cruising Club join us this year to watch the parade. We encourage anyone to join who has an interest in meeting members of the SDR and OCC.”

Knowles encourages cruisers to arrive in Bristol prior to the Fourth of July week events.
