Blessing of the Fleet


Blessing of the Fleet 2018 – RSVP BY TUESDAY, APRIL 17

This year’s Blessing of the Fleet will begin promptly at 9:30 A.M Saturday, April 21 with Pastor Becky, from the Church of the Good Shepherd officiating.

Following the blessing of the boats, there will be a blessing of the clubhouse and DBC members as well as a memorial tribute to members that passed away in 2017.

All members are invited to participate in the blessing and fellowship.

We will have a brunch afterward with the club providing sandwich fixings and beverages.

Everyone is asked to bring a side dish or dessert to share.

If your boat is docked elsewhere, it is your responsibility to make arrangements with the harbor master for temporary mooring.

Last year Pastor Becky performed virtual blessings for those out at sea or moored elsewhere. To receive a virtual blessing come to the club with a picture of your boat or if you cannot attend send me a picture.

If you would like to have your boat blessed, please send me your name, the name of your boat, and your slip number.

If you’re moored in the Dunedin Marina and are unable to attend please send me the information listed above and we will make sure your boat is blessed.

Volunteers are needed to pick up and escort Pastor Becky, help set up and clean up.  Let me know if you are interested.  This would be a great opportunity for potential and new members.

Please RSVP to or text me at 727-204-6357 no later than Tuesday, April 17 for the blessing and/or the brunch.

Hope to see you there!

This event will take place rain or shine!
