Blessing of the fleet


Once again, Coast Guard Frankston is proud to host the annual Blessing of the Fleet and extends an invitation for you to join it in celebrating the work of our marine emergency services. These include but are not limited to the SES, Surf Life Saving Victoria, Australian Volunteer Coast Guard, Volunteer Marine Rescue and Water Police.

This year the blessing will be held on Frankston Pier at 11.15am on Sunday, November 12, and the public is welcome to come along to what is sure to be an amazing event that brings together our hard-working marine emergency services in the one location and gives you the chance to step into their world.

Coast Guard Frankston will have light refreshments available at its headquarters next to the playground to the south of the pier after the event.

Before the blessing, however, the community is also invited to attend a service at St Paul’s Church, Bay Street South, Frankston, at 10am.

Here’s a great opportunity for you to bring the kids for a close-up look at the boats that patrol our waters and meet the men and women who help to protect our community.

You can’t miss seeing the biggest gathering of emergency service vessels in one location.
