The Board of the Seaside Park Yacht Club has voted to become a Founding Member of the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame in Annapolis, Maryland. SPYC joins an expanding list of yacht clubs and sailing organizations in the United States in supporting the National Sailing Center & Hall of Fame as it preserves America's sailing legacy and engages the next generation of American sailors.
“The Seaside Park Yacht Club is pleased to continue its commitment to our sailing tradition by becoming a Founding Member of the National Sailing Center and Hall of Fame," said Commodore Marilyn Lemmon. "The promotion of the spirit of sailing as a sport dates back to the Seaside Park Yacht Club's founding in 1899, which was home to some of the earliest formal yacht racing contests in the United States. Our members have continued to honor and expand the tradition of the earliest races, and are delighted to join the NSHOF in the furtherance of sailing through recognition of its history and its future.”
Located on Barnegat Bay on the barrier island town of Seaside Park, New Jersey, SPYC was founded in 1899, beginning with a series of Sneak Box races for large cash prizes that evolved into first a Sneak Box owners club and soon afterward the Seaside Park Yacht Club.
Seaside Park Yacht Club joins these other Founding Members in supporting NSHOF.
