Meet the USCG Auxiliary patrol boat in the Mamaroneck outer harbor between green buoy #5 and Hen Island at noon. We will then parade into the west basin, pass the reviewing stand, go around the inner horseshoe to exit. Listen for updates on VHF channel 68. Winners will be announced on channel 68 at 2:00 p.m.
Spectators should gather at the west basin of the harbor to watch the boats pass in review as they receive their blessing.
