Sailboats Blessed

More than a dozen sailboats from York River Yacht Club rolled out of York River Yacht Haven as a bagpiper in kilts heralded the morning with a plaintiff tune. The day concluded with the traditional “burning of the socks” to welcome the warm weather of spring. During the solemn prayer of the blessing, a friend of mine roared up in his large Blessingmotorboat and insinuated himself in the mix. He was welcomed nonetheless. I asked later why he crashed the blessing, and he replied, “I need all the help I can get!”
