Windjammer Days 2022

Blessing of the Fleet

Mon, 06/27/2022 - 11:45am

    Thirty-five commercial boats passed by the Boothbay Harbor fish pier on Atlantic Avenue to be blessed during the Blessing of the Fleet ceremony on Sunday afternoon, June 26. The event was one of three events scheduled on the opening day of the 60th Windjammer Days festival. 

    Deacon Tom Blatz of All Saints Parish provided the blessings as he sprinkled holy water using an aspergillum upon each each boat as it passed by the pier.
