Sailor’s Home Opens Its Doors To Tall Ships

June 1, 2017

The Bermuda Sailor’s Home [BSH] will host a special service of celebration in honour of the Bermuda Tall Ships Regatta on Sunday, June 4th.

In making the announcement, BSH Ships Liaison Officer John Dale said, “As a member of the Bermuda Maritime Convention, it is the Bermuda Sailor’s Home’s responsibility to provide and promote a safe haven for all seafarers.

“So it was an obvious fit for the Home to put its support behind the Tall Ships Bermuda Regatta. Therefore, at the request of the organizing committee we have agreed to host a special seafarer’s service on Sunday, June 4th, the eve of the ships’ departure from Bermuda.

“In addition to hosting the service on Sunday the Home has extended its days and hours of operation while the ships are in port. The Home’s social venue, The Mariner’s Club, is also open daily, and in cooperation with Mad Hatters, we are offering an affordable lunch and evening pub menu for the crew and anyone interested in stopping by to meet our guests and extend a little Bermuda hospitality.”

The Home’s Honorary Chaplin, The Very Right Reverend Cannon Norman Lynas said, “It was important for the Home to open its doors for this special occasion, ahead of its annual seafarer’s celebration.

“The Bermuda Sailor’s Home has a very unique ecumenical relationship with both the Missions to Seafarers, and the Sailor’s Society, the two largest international organisations offering assistance and practical support to seafarers around the world.

“We are extremely proud of our association with both entities, and we take our role as the local branch of both very seriously. On Monday June 5th, 626 souls will go back out to sea and we want to offer each one of them the opportunity to give thanks and prepare for their onward journey.”

Cannon Lynas said, “Sunday is the Feast of Pentecost and we are delighted to welcome the Right Reverend Nicholas Dill, Lord Bishop of Bermuda as our guest preacher for the service; which has been specifically prepared for the day and the congregation.”

The Service begins at 12:45pm and is open to all. For more information, contact the BSH General Manager on 295-5598 or email bermudasailorshome@logic.bm.
