Water Music will then lead a procession of pleasure craft and commercial vessels out to the gulf where the boat will be anchored in front of the pier. At this time, a wreath honoring those lost at sea will be tossed into the gulf
and all boats will receive a blessing from the Bishop. The Blessing will begin on the bay side at 2:00pm and will end on the gulf side when the last boat has been blessed.
