Blessing The Fleet
26th January 2008

Whisked away by Vice Commodore Neil C. and his sturdy craft, the Quest were the small but no less intrepid maritime wing of the Order, Sister Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation II, Novice Sister Helena, Cardinal Titi Chartay Immaculata Deceptionata, and Sister Salomé of the 9th Mystic Rhinestone.

Departing from the North Harbour / Balkgowlah Sailing Club Wharf. the liquor cabinet was promptly unlocked and flung opern. Plunging through the waves of Sydney harbour, buffeted by salty winds the Order “sipped” gin and tonics and other libations to ward of mal-de-mer.

Arriving at Store beach, style and seamanship were displayed by the Order who had to exit the craft onto a damp “rubber duckie”. No one overboard even thought the choppy waters conspired against the graceful maintenance of proper habit and decorum.

More food, more booze, then a blessing well received. Lots of swarthy sailors – male, female, whatever…

Just another tremendous day on our picturesque harbour.

The gathered faithful assemble and rejoice in the subtle witt embedded in the blessing!
Cardinal Titi Chartay Immaculata Deceptionata...
"And now I call on the great holly dingo ....."
Man overboard! In a life preserver!
Holding a glass of what?
always been partial to a man in a captain's uniform!
A veneer of innocence can cover many a sin Sister!
Sister, my lips are sealed!
Sound them aboard Sister! Time to weigh anchor!
