On Sept. 10, Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club (BCYC) in Corona del Mar celebrated its seventh annual Gala. The Gala benefits Bahia Sail Racing Association’s ongoing 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 complete with an ice sculpture martini bar luge, free flowing champagne, delicious gourmet food, and decadent desserts. Live music was provided by Chandra Reese and BCYC’s own Tim Whelan. The live auction was conducted by BCYC’s Staff Commodore Mary Bacon, who always brings comedic relief to this annual event.
