Stay Tuned – The 2017 Blessing of the Fleet and Brunch with the Bridge is April 2nd, 2017
Cypress Landing Yacht Club News — Blessing of Fleet and Brunch with Bridge, April 3, 2016
What a great Day!
More than 90 Cypress Landing Yacht Club (CLYC) members came together on a beautiful North Carolina day for the annual “Blessing of the Fleet”— a worldwide rite held for a millennium to protect those going to and at sea. Clear blue skies and a crisp breeze were the order of the day for our ceremony this year, which took place outdoors on the lawn overlooking Chocowinity Bay and the Marina. One of our own Cypress Landing residents, Reverend D., officiated and gave the blessing. This event was organized by the Fleet Committee to start the 2016 boating season.
Immediately following the Blessing was the Cypress Landing Yacht Club’s annual “Brunch with the Bridge. This year it was hosted by two couples who are new (< I year) residents of our community. These two couples stepped up, talked to some “old timers,” and organized a great affair. On behalf of all who attended, many thanks to our host couples for a well organized event and many thanks to the many volunteers (cooks, decorators, cleanup crew, photographers, etc.) for a very enjoyable and tasty get together.
