I don’t come from a sailing family. To be honest, I don’t think my parents knew the difference between starboard and port, mainsail and jib. MY love for sailing truly comes from no one but myself.

When I was five years old, my mom signed me up for summer camp at BCYC. Little did she know that this program would turn into one of my lifelong passions. During those days as a Starfish, I fell in love with both the sailing component and the community at Bahia Corinthian Yacht Club. The supportive coaches, friends and staff I found at BCYC is what kept me coming back year after year. Now, after 12 years at the yacht club, I really do consider BCYC my second home. 

As the junior commodore this year, I want to give back to BCYC. I hope to encourage more junior board participation at the club and with community service projects. It is important to not only appreciate your community, but to also help make it a better place.

Junior Commodore, Darcy Chung
