'Under the Sea' Theme Decor

The Commodore's Ball is the social event of the year for members of the Semiahmoo Yacht Club. For this year's event, over one hundred SYC members joined Commodore Lynette at the Silver Reef Resort in Ferndale to help celebrate an outstanding year with an evening of food, fun and dancing.

Donning their finest evening attire, many members began the evening with a pre-event gathering in our hospitality suite. Then it was down to the hotel Ballroom, elegantly decorated to reflect the Commodore's 'Under the Sea' theme.

During the opening cocktail hour, members and guests enjoyed music from The Atlantics and a photo recap of our year, while checking out silent auction items, having a formal portrait taken and sampling tasty hors d'oeuvres.

Following a delicious meal of steak, salmon or pasta from the resort's renowned kitchen, the evenings program turned to a live auction and the annual awards presentation.
