Following Governor Newsom’s directive yesterday asking citizens to stop all non-essential activities, the Yacht Club announced the cancellation of its inaugural Opening Day of Boating Season and Blessing of the Boats scheduled for Saturday, April 18.
“We are hopeful that this event can be rescheduled for later in the year,” said Vice Commodore Ron Wilbur. “However, the health and safety of everyone will naturally remain the most important consideration.”
The Blessing of the Boats is a century-old tradition. Originating in fishing villages in the Mediterranean, this annual festival was an important part of boating life as captains, crews, and families sought divine favor for bountiful catches and safety for working boats and the men that served on them. Today, annual blessing events are held by most yacht clubs and boating fleets around the world.
Established in 1990 by Canyon Lake residents who enjoyed time on the lake, the Yacht Club operates as a social and philanthropic club within the Canyon Lake constellation of sanctioned clubs and organizations. Boat ownership is not required to participate in the club.
With a membership of more than 110 members, the Yacht club maintains a fun and busy social calendar, bringing members together for dinners, cruises, and other recreation. The club also produces several annual community events, including the Parade of Lights, Lake Clean-Up days, and the awards dinner where scholarships are awarded to local college students.
