The annual Blessing of The Boats was held at the pontoon on Friday 2nd June 2017 at 8pm organized by the Rathmullan sailing and watersports Club. There was a large turnout of both people and boats for the blessing which was officiated by Father Martin Collum and Rev Amanda Best. Proceeding began with Kevin Shields welcome members of the Lough Swilly RNLI by playing a tune on his trumpet followed by singing from members of the Colmcille Choir.

In addition to the nautical themed singing and music provided by The Choir, a solo was given by Martin T Sheridan.

Refreshments for Crews and Guests were served afterwards in a marquee set up by The Sailing Club where the singing continued in spite of the deteriorating weather.
