BRIEF HISTORY: Seaside Park Yacht Club (SPYC) was incorporated in 1899. SPYC was one of the founding members of the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association, which formed in 1914. The first E Scow fleet on Barnegat Bay was formed in 1925, comprised of 8 boats. Five of the eight were from SPYC. The first ECESA championship was held 75 years ago, in 1939. It was won by Sam Merrick from Bay Head.
