The Gala in 2020 was very successful despite COVID-19 restrictions and challenges. 

THANK YOU, BCYC MEMBERS,for your support! The Gala provides tremendous support for the club’s sailing foundation, Bahia Sail Racing Association (BSRA), which provides BCYC and the yachting community with funds to offset the costs associated with our junior sailing program, as well as assisting with expenses for others to attend national and international regattas. All prestigious yacht clubs have a sailing program with assets to maintain and high costs to cover. By attending and donating to The Gala, you are contributing to and supporting our club financially to offset these costs. 

Members play a vital role in moving BCYC forward with all of our water-related activities. We run a junior mariners program three time per year and have been renting a boat because we do not have one on which four to five juniors can learn to sail as a team. Through your contributions, a Quest boat for this purpose will soon be added to our BCYC fleet. It will be also be available for use by our members and families after undergoing a similar orientation as that required to use Ruthless, the club’s Harbor 20. You can be glad to know your contributions to The Gala made this acquisition possible.

I am looking forward to 2021 and our club being back on the water, cruising and sailing. 

Commodore, Rhonda Tolar
