The Cape Fear Sail and Power Squadron will host the 2016 Blessing of the Fleet on Saturday, 16 April. The event is open to all USPS members and local boaters and watermen. The Blessing will be conducted from the Gazebo at Sea Path Yacht Club, Wrightsville Beach, at 1200. Participating boats should assemble in Banks Channel in front of the Blockade Runner Hotel between 1115 and 1130. At 1150 there will be a call to order the line and boats will proceed west through Motts Channel towards the ICW. We will provide a tentative boat order and rafting lineup the week prior to the event based upon which vessels have signed up. The Chaplain will confer a blessing on each individual boat by name as your boat approaches the Chaplain’s position. A photographer will be taking pictures from the Gazebo. After receiving your blessing, boats will continue towards the MarineMax facility and then on to your respective destinations.  Low tide in Wrightsville Beach will be at 0954. If you have questions, please contact Buck Latapie at (703) 819-1360 or email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
