The blessing of Jacqueline

Friends, family, supporters and donors gathered today on a perfect sunny morning for the blessing of Station 4 Mykonos new 4.2m RIB (rigid inflatable boat) Jacqueline.  The RIB is one of three new vessels sponsored by Western Cape Disaster Management.

Below are some highlights.

Jacqueline does the honours: pouring champagne over her pontoons and naming her the “Jacqueline”-  “May God bless her and all who sail in her.”
