Stardate 64536.8 - Blessing of the Fleet

We participated in the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club blessing of the fleet last year on Jeff and Emily Smith's boat. They sold Incandescent this year, and Tony and Teresa invited us out on their Pearson 303, Saga. Loren and Kate participated, too.

The sailing vessels looked impressive.

Once Kate feel asleep Cheryl and Loren sat on the bow to watch the boats jockey for position in the procession.

Tony and Teresa were our hosts.

We managed to rig up the starboard aft quarter-berth for Kate to nap in.

The boat below, Christmas, won the "Best Dressed Crew" award.

After the blessing we enjoyed some food in the cockpit.

Kate was awake for the trip in the launch back to shore.

Kate and Loren hung out on the bench near the club as we organized our stuff to go home.
