THE Frankston Coast Guard will host their annual blessing of the fleet on 10 November.

VF1 are inviting the local community to come along to the event, which sees rescue vessels blessed by a celebrant.

Representatives from Marine Search and Rescue and Emergency Services, the Water Police, Volunteer Marine Rescue Mornington and Hastings, Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad, State Emergency Service, Live Saving Victoria, and other Coast Guard flotillas attended the event last year.

The day begins at 10am with a service for representatives of marine organisations and the general congregation at St Paul’s Anglican Church, Frankston. At 11.15, vessels will be moored and a celebrant will bless each one individually. The vessels then break away and head past Oliver’s Hill.

Refreshments at the Frankston Yacht Club from 12.30pm.
