Staniel Cay Yacht Club is based on the island of Staniel Cay.
This island is nestled in the magnificent chain of Bahamian
Islands called The Exuma Cays (a.k.a. "Exumas").
Staniel Cay lies approximately 75 miles south of Nassau and 250
miles of southeast of Florida. The island itself is less than 2
square miles in area. A small Bahamian village lies on the
western shore, just a short walk south from the Staniel Cay Yacht
Club. The burgee of SCYC is white with a blue border all around,
a red >
shaped figure inside and the letters SC in blue inside the red >.
