Steve Brown returns to Bless The Fleet

Steve Brown, now a student Presperterian Minister and former QS student and staff member returned July 9th to conduct a Blessing of the Fleet. While such a ceremony is an ancient tradition, Steve customized it to suit the occasion.  Steve did considerable research to prepare a short but excellent ceremony that related to the audience—students, volunteers, family and friends of Quinte SailAbility. The ritual was first performed in the ancient times to protect fishing fleets at the start of each season. It is now an annual event at navy’s, yacht clubs and fishing fleets through out the world. The Blessing will also become an annual event at QS
