Bayside Historical Society – “From the Archives: Bayside Yacht Club”

President Paul DiBenedetto

Entering Fourth of July Weekend here at Bayside Live TV, we want to show you a very special event that took place at the Bayside Historical Society. The Bayside Yacht Club was one of the cornerstones of Bayside culture throughout the 20th century. It was home to a large pool, numerous tournaments and events, but most importantly comoradory. Bayside Historic Society President Paul "Paulie Coconuts" DiBenedetto takes us on a tour of the new "From the Archives: Bayside Yacht Club" exhibit, and gives us a little more information on the club's history.
