Blessing The Boats.

Monday 1st April saw a great event which signified the official beginning of the Blakeney rowing season: the blessing of “Bluejacket”, “Hoi Larntan”, “Petrel” as well as Victoria’s sculling craft. Members and supporters gathered on the Carnser to witness Tom H offering three toasts associated with Blakeney before organising a ceremony in which everyone could participate. Many thanks to the contributors of bubbly and glasses.
There was ample opportunity to sample cake and drink before and after the blessing. This made the whole event pass really pleasantly and brought Crabbers together. Thanks also to the providers of some excellent chocolate and fruit cake.
Both skiffs were taken for an outing after the ceremony and this finished the event in style.
