Club Cruceros History

Club Cruceros was started in March of 1988 by 162 cruisers. Click to read a fascinating story of the beginning of the Club as remembered by one of our founders, Marta Sutton.

Without them Club Cruceros would not be here. Their gracious giving of their time, the Clubhouse, the Vista Room, Club WIFI and the list goes on. Thanks to our honorary life members Mac, Mary and Neil Schroyer. Click here to read their history and see some fabulous old photos

The Early Years

We ran across some newspaper clippings and photos from the first events of Club Cruceros. From parties to meetings to regattas...some of these articles are a riot. What a great group of fun people our members are!

Community Involvement and Charities

It's not all fun and games. Our Club Charter obliges members to "...5. Establish and maintain good relations with the local officials and community leaders. 6. Be involved in charitable programs and spearhead special events..."
With a passion for the local community club members were as involved then as they are today.

From our very beginnings Subasta has been a big part of Club Cruceros history. We all miss the opportunity to help the charity FANLAP through Subasta. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. Read all about it here and don't miss the links to the many, many photos in our photo gallery.


Participating in Carnaval has historically been a fun and rewarding way for the Club and its members to become more involved in the local community. Some years the club members walked the parade route with a banner and some years elaborate floats were created.
