2017 Blessing Videos and Pix

I did the best I could but had some phone issues and missed Rob Wyatts flag raising and Bill’s speech about Nautical terms, my apologies.

Thanks to all involved who planned this event, gave talks, readied the yard, blessed the boats, and ordered and fixed the food. We have a good start to the 2017 season.
