The Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club gala supports the Bahia Sail Racing Association


On September 10, the Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club (BCYC) in Corona del Mar celebrated its seventh annual gala. The gala benefits from the Bahia Sail Racing Association’s continued support of the Southern California amateur sailing community, including all BCYC sailing and racing programs.

This year’s gala was a huge success with over $60,000 raised from generous BCYC members who provided cash donations, live and silent auction items and raffle items.

It was a fabulous evening with an ice sculpting martini bar sled, flowing champagne, delicious gourmet food and decadent desserts. Live music was provided by Chandra Reese and Tim Whelan of BCYC. The live auction was led by BCYC Staff Commodore Mary Bacon, who always brings comic relief to this annual event.
