2018 Commodore's Ball - A Cruise to Paris!

February 8, 2018 at Gulf Harbour Golf & Country Club
Fort Myers, Florida 

The Eiffel Tower from the Seine River

The Fort Myers Beach Yacht Club was formed in 1953 for the purpose of promoting safe, enjoyable boating and great fellowship. This community-oriented club, with more than 130 members and 70 boats, maintains a very active schedule of year-round activities both on the water and on land. The Commodore’s Ball is an annual gala  that is one of the most anticipated of the season. Participants and their guests enjoy cocktails, fine dining, dancing to live music and spectacular views. During the evening, recognition is given to outgoing officers of the club, and the installation of new officers takes place.
