Smmer Breeze Boat Christening – All members welcome
There will be a short ceremony on wet slip #10 followed by appetizers and Champaign. Rain date will be May 7. Please RSVP to: email@example.com What is a christening? The tradition of christening a ship goes back centuries, and is believed to bring good luck and safe travel to the vessel. At the christening ceremony, the sponsor is given the honor of breaking a bottle of champagne against the bow just before the ship enters the water for the first time(or multiple times :). Champagne, often viewed as the most elegant of wines, was brought into use during the late 19th century to christen a boat. The christening and the launch give a ship her identity.
