New Boat Christening

aLast week we celebrated the Christening of New Boats, conducted by a representative of King Neptune himself aka our esteemed Wexford Yacht Club Commodore, Bill Haverland.

We recognized Blue Moon V, Sea to Tee, Good Vibrations, Dancing Queen, Miss Rutie and Sea Cruise, and “asked the sailors of old and the mood of God that is the sea to accept the names of these seven vessels, to help them through their passages, and allow them to return, safely with their crews.”  Following the announcements made by the Commodore, the seven families broke a bottle of champagne over the bow to appease King Neptune, and laid a branch of green leaves on the deck to ensure safe returns.

Immediately after the ceremony, we continued the celebrations with our monthly Docktails Party!
