Three well-known names in the recreational boating world signed on as sponsors of the Salty Dawg Rally, according to rally co-founder Bill Knowles.

West Marine, the nation's largest boating supply retailer, yacht builder Beneteau America and Florida’s Earle Yachts, a major brokerage firm, have joined in support of the Salty Dawg, the East Coast’s annual cruising rally for sailing yachts heading south to the Caribbean in the winter.

“We’re delighted to have our new sponsors aboard,” Knowles said in a statement. “Our valued sponsors bring a great deal of benefit and support to our cruising members who make the passage south, and then back north again every year. Now there’s no reason not to be a Dawg!”

West Marine is based in Watsonville, Calif. Beneteau America, based in Annapolis, Md., was founded in Croix-de-Vie in Vendée in France more than a century ago and has launched more than 42,000 yachts. Earle Yachts, based in Fort Lauderdale, is a family-owned company.

These companies join a list of rally sponsors that includes Nv-charts, Blue Water Sailing magazine, the Bitter End Yacht Club, Jeanneau North America and Hylas Yachts.
