Here is member Graeme Tait exchanging burgees with the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia in Darling Point, just outside Sydney. Graeme exchanged burgees with three clubs on his trip including the Royal Clubs of Tasmania and the Sydney Yacht Squadron.
We have had a bumper number of burgee exchanges in the past few weeks and, thanks to member John Sanders’ woodworking skills, we now have a place to display them. Next time you’re in the clubhouse, look up.
Inside “The Nook”, the room overlooking the marina with the round table, above your head is the display of burgees we have collected in our first year.
At each end is our own burgee: one end has the original prototype and the other one the first production flag.
In between, there are the burgees of:
- Alamitos Bay YC
- Bahia Corinthian YC
- Cabrillo Beach YC
- Cruising Yacht Club of Australia
- Loch Lomond YC
- Master Mariner’s Benevolent Association
- Pacific Inter-Club Yacht Association
- Portland (OR) YC
- Royal Club Náutico de Palma
- Royal Cork YC
- Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron
- San Leandro YC
- San Rafael YC
- Sequoia YC
- The Royal YC of Tasmania
- Treasure Island
Look for a gazetteer on the table for the guide to the burgees.
