This year, the Blessing of the Fleet is celebrating its 25th year.

The special event commemorates the naming of the 'Whitsunday' region and the significance of the seventh Sunday after Easter.

Father Chris Yule has invited the Anglican Bishop of North Queensland as a special guest who will bless the fleet on the day.

The event will occur at the Whitsunday Sailing Club once again, and people with boats of all types and sizes are welcome to join in the fleet which will be blessed by the Bishop.

The Whitsunday Navy Cadets will also be involved in the event.
