MIYC Presentation & Blessing of the Fleet

By Roy Hershberger February 17, 2018 was another beautiful day for the Marco Island Yacht Club’s annual Blessing of the Fleet. The sky was a perfectly clear blue sky and the winds less than 5 knots, although the boats did have to contend with a tidal current, which was at maximum flood, and the shallow water by the Clubhouse and Jolley Bridge. Prior to the ceremony getting underway, the Marco Island Fire Boat, the “J.W. Adams”, directed everyone’s attention to the water with

a barrage of water from their fire hoses. Commodore Bob Winterhalter then got the proceedings underway by introducing Past Commodores M.A. Harlacker, Frank Rinker, Jim Marr and Dick Irwin on shore plus Lois Dixon on board “Tri-Power” and Bob DeFeo on board “Sea Esta”. He also introduced the 2018 Bridge Members Chip Pittman, Kathy Hershberger, Geoff Walker, Ray Rosenberg, and Alan Sandlin on shore plus Jeff Comeaux on “Lady B” and Pete Frazier on “Grand Pelican”.
