This is the one we will go with (double sided).

Attachment 727

Looks like really good quality (see pic of a sample above).

Quote:
My burgees are hand made by applique method from 200 denier Solarmax flag nylon. This means I hand cut the lettering with a thermal cutter which completely seals the nylon and prevents freying, then sew the lettering to the burgee with embroidery stitching all around the edges of the letters.

Triple stitched hem-lines, finished with solid brass grommets.

I am sewing with 200 denier solarmax flag and banner nylon, (uv treated) and I line double sided flags with tyvec to block the light coming thru.

You can order individually or in small groups.

I would like $35 each.


As it is handled through an Ebay Store, payment is easily handled via PayPal, credit card, etc., - directly on the Ebay Store's webpage. This lady has been making burgees for 8 years.

So, do we still go with these quality burgees at $35.00 ? Will we have orders?

I say - do it, and do it properly!

Great John. I want to see the first photo of the first one on a boat.

She is busy making the first one today and will have them on her Ebay store over the weekend. I will post the URL here as soon as it is ready.

Hi Guys,

I'm confused. Thought the final version was YC not VYC as seen on ebay.

Got mine only today but hope to have it flying this weekend and carry it with pride on the Round the Island Race on the 20 th June.

Here's my quandry - we fly a RYA and an OCC member burgee - and now the CLVYC.

So what goes on top?

Cheers

JOHN

Hi John,

The usual protocol :- place higher in order of rank and higher in order of most to least represented.

So RYA on starboard hoist above OCC member burgee

and CLVYC burgee on Port hoist

My question was tongue in cheeek but protocal actually dictates country courtesy flag to starboard so all our club flags are run up port side.

Cheers

JOHN

Hello John,

The Original Question :-

"Got mine only today but hope to have it flying this weekend and carry it with pride on the Round the Island Race on the 20 th June.

Here's my quandry - we fly a RYA and an OCC member burgee - and now the CLVYC.

So what goes on top?"

In the original question there is no mention of "Country Courtesy Flag" Only 3 burgee type flags associating the skipper with an organisation, were part of the question.

However, if Swagman's port of registry is a British Port - and if the Round the Island race is to be in British waters - which I understand it shall be. Then, what flag will be hoisted starboard above all others?? Probably in the same order as given before. Because Swagman will fly the Red Duster off his aft flag pole. HOWEVER, in many races such as 'Round the Island Race 20 June 2009' in British waters - the very second that a British boat flying the Ensign, Red or Blue crosses the start line, it shall then be deemed to have have retired.

In this specific race the relevant authorities have ruled as per :-

4.5 Boats shall, while racing, wear from the backstay (or stern

if no backstay is fitted) the fleet flag and, below this, any

class identification flag assigned by the Island Sailing

Club. Fleet and class identification flag assignments are

shown in Table 1 on Page 8. Fleet flags are provided with

these instructions, except for the Sunsail Fleet who shall

provide and wear only their own class identification flag.

11. RETIREMENT

11.2 On retirement from the Race, boats are requested to

wear an ensign and to keep clear of boats that are still

racing.

I'm still waiting to see the burgee flying too! hehe

Is the virtual yacht club recognized as a real YC?

We're looking for an inexpensive yacht club to join for cruisers.

We'd like to have the benefits of reduced rates and not have to

support a clubhouse with monthly dues since we're planning on

being away from our home port for at least 10 years.

Any suggestions?

Thank you and please post photos. : )

Kristin

Hi Kristen. No not a registered club but, fly it anyway while away from home base and when visiting other clubs express surprise that they do not have reciprocity with CL. You can then say that you will suggest it to CL if they let you use their facilities.

He-He!
