Blessing of the Fleet at the Ross Barnett Reservoir


Power, sail and paddle boats of all sorts participated in the Jackson Yacht Club's "Blessing of the Fleet" at the Ross Barnett Reservoir in Ridgeland, Mississippi. The annual event signals the unofficial start of boating season in central Mississippi. The Rev. Kyle Dice Seage of St. Philip's Episcopal Church in Jackson bestowed the blessing from aboard Lisa and Will Manuel's sailboat anchored near the Jackson yacht Club. Celebrities, including Melanie Christopher, Malcolm White and Bobby Cleveland, judged decorated boats.
