THE BRIBIE ISLAND SAILING CLUB, TOGETHER WITH AN OUTRIGGER CANOE FROM BIMOCC, WEATHER PERMITTING, WILL BE HOLDING A BLESSING OF THE FLEET CEREMONY FOR THE BOATS IN THEIR CLUB.

This will take place between 9 and 10am on Saturday, 30th January 2021, with the boats motoring northwards from Sylvan Beach, past the VMR Pontoon. A Minister from St Peter’s Church, Bribie Island, will bless the boats as they pass the pontoon. Members of the public may be interested in observing the proceedings from the waterfront. The ceremony has taken place in the past on Bribie and the BISC is trying to revive this annual event. After the ceremony, the BISC will be sailing off to Mission Point for one of their regular events.
