Rallies are held across the UK and overseas. They range from day sails and short camp cruises in sheltered waters, to coastal expeditions over a couple of weeks. They are always an occasion for socialising, making new friends, comparing notes and boats and lots of picnics! You can sail in company or you can sail alone - the DCA does not over organise; join in as much or as little as you wish. At some rallies people all launch from the same place; at others they launch at different locations and meet up at a designated spot.
Coronavirus caused the cancellation of all rallies in 2020 but fortunately did not curtail the programme in 2021. So provided there are no lockdown or travel restrictions, rallies will go ahead as planned in 2022. It is important, however, that members remain mindful of their own safety in terms of social distancing.
