The boat, hopefully with the new sails, will be blessed on Sunday. Last year I was taken by surprise by the latin chants droning out of the USCG Cutter Tern's loudspeaker and more astonished when I could barely make out a Catholic Priest on the bridge. But, I've come to peace with that since it obviously worked and I made it through an entire sailing season without incident despite my lack of sailing skill.
The blessing announcement:
We're going to try to get out there early to have time to sail a bit and still make Camille's soccer game. Have I mentioned how happy I am that I got to sail this weekend?
