Feeling blue about the gray weather raining out the Blessing of the Fleet parade? Don't let the clouds stop you! Join the Pirates of POWYC in a renegade takeover of the BotF tradition.

Completely unsanctioned, and lacking in sanctity, this is a send-up of the normal Blessing of the Fleet tradition.

Bring your dinghies, SUPs, kayaks, and canoes to the end of Z Dock for a blessing like you've never had before. Led by Pirate Admiral Rose, and supported by Minister of Piracy Jane the Songful and Pirate Captain Kimberly Redfire, the Pirates of POWYC will give out waterhose-based blessings for 2024.

Come get splashed! Or come watch from Z Beach. Pirate costumes not required, but strongly encouraged. No registration required.
