Blessing Of The Boats 2017 - Lyme Regis Gig Club
Sunday 21st May 2017
Lyme Regis Gig Club were honoured on Sunday 21st May to take part in the RNLI's Blessing of the Boats ceremony, which was hosted outside the Life Boat Boat House and slipway at The Cobb.
The Blessing of the Boats is a wonderful and very poignant ceremony that celebrates Lyme Regis links to the sea and seafaring both in the past and now, comemorates those who have lost their lives at sea and the wonderful work of the RNLI and the town's lifeboat crews.
Lyme Regis Gig Club took part in the ceremony both as part of the wreath laying and provided four Cornish Pilot Gigs to escourt the Lyme Regis lifeboat 'Lock Fyne' out to sea to lay them at sea.
