The Best Way to Display Burgees in a Yacht Club: A Comprehensive Guide

Table of Contents

Introduction

Burgees are an essential part of the identity and tradition of yacht clubs worldwide. They represent the club’s history, achievements, and values, and are often displayed with pride by members and guests alike. However, displaying burgees improperly or haphazardly can detract from the club’s image and tradition. In this article, we will explore the best way to display burgees in a yacht club, taking into account different types of burgees, suitable locations for display, mounting methods, and maintenance. Whether you are a new member or an experienced yachtsman, following the proper etiquette for burgee display can enhance the beauty and elegance of your yacht club, while preserving its heritage and prestige. So, let’s dive in and discover the secrets of the best way to display burgees in your yacht club!

Understand the different types of burgees

Before we dive into the best way to display burgees in a yacht club, it’s essential to understand the different types of burgees that exist. The three main types of burgees are Club Burgees, Officer Burgees, and Special Event Burgees.

Club Burgees

A Club Burgee is a distinctive flag or pennant that represents the yacht club as a whole. It usually features the club’s emblem or logo and is the most commonly displayed burgee. The Club Burgee is often flown at the club’s main flagpole, clubhouse or displayed in a prominent location.

Officer Burgees

Officer Burgees are smaller flags that represent a specific club officer or position, such as the Commodore, Vice-Commodore, Rear Commodore, or Fleet Captain. These burgees are often flown on the officer’s boat or displayed in their office or workspace.

Special Event Burgees

Special Event Burgees are temporary flags that represent a specific event, such as a regatta, race, or social gathering. They are typically flown for the duration of the event and then retired or kept as a memento.

Understanding the different types of burgees is crucial for displaying them properly and with respect. By knowing the different types, you can ensure that each burgee is given the appropriate display location and treatment. In the next section, we will discuss the best location for displaying burgees in a yacht club.

Mounting methods for burgee display

There are several mounting methods available for displaying burgees, depending on the location and type of burgee being displayed. The most common methods include:

Halyard Mounting

The halyard mounting method involves attaching the burgee to a halyard, which is then hoisted up a flagpole. This method is commonly used for Club Burgees and Officer Burgees.

Wall Mounting

Wall mounting involves attaching the burgee to a wall using screws, hooks, or clips. This method is often used for displaying burgees in a designated Burgee Display Area.

Horizontal Mounting

Horizontal mounting involves attaching the burgee to a horizontal pole, which is then attached to a vertical surface such as a wall or post. This method is commonly used for displaying burgees in a designated Burgee Display Area.

Pennant String

A pennant string involves attaching several burgees to a single string and hanging it in a designated location. This method is often used for displaying special event burgees.

Here is a video related to this post:

When choosing a mounting method, it’s important to consider the location and the type of burgee being displayed. The method chosen should be secure, safe, and not cause any damage to the burgee or the location. In the next section, we will discuss how to maintain burgees for long-lasting display.

Maintaining burgees for long-lasting display

To ensure that burgees are displayed in their best condition and last for a long time, proper maintenance is crucial. The following tips can help you maintain your burgees:

Regularly clean your burgees to remove any dirt, dust, or debris. Use a mild detergent and warm water, and gently scrub the burgee with a soft brush or sponge. Rinse thoroughly and allow it to air dry before storing or displaying it again.

When not in use, store your burgees in a cool, dry, and dark location to avoid exposure to sunlight or moisture. You can roll them up or fold them neatly and store them in a dry, airtight container or bag.

Regularly inspect your burgees for any signs of damage, wear and tear, or discoloration. Repair any damages immediately to prevent further deterioration.

Replacement

Over time, burgees may become faded, torn, or damaged beyond repair. When this happens, it’s best to replace them with new ones to ensure a fresh and elegant display.

By following these tips, you can maintain your burgees in their best condition and display them with pride for years to come. In the next section, we will summarize the key points and provide some final thoughts on the best way to display burgees in a yacht club.

The Best Way to Display Burgees in a Yacht Club: A Comprehensive Guide

Displaying burgees is an important tradition in yacht clubs, and it’s essential to do it right. By understanding the different types of burgees, choosing the right location, selecting the appropriate mounting method, and maintaining the burgees correctly, you can display them with elegance and pride.

Remember, a well-displayed burgee represents the history, tradition, and achievements of the club and its members. It can enhance the club’s image and promote a sense of belonging and pride among members.

So, whether you are displaying the Club Burgee, Officer Burgees, or special event burgees, always take the time to do it right. Follow the guidelines we’ve outlined in this article, and you’ll be well on your way to displaying burgees in the best way possible.

We hope you found this article helpful, and we wish you all the best in your burgee display endeavors!

BURGEES, ENSIGNS, FLAGS and PENNANTS

yacht club burgess

By Judy Hills, ACBS roving reporter, member of RDC Triangle Chapter

Have you ever given thought to the burgees, ensigns, flags and pennants that we fly on our boats?  Did you consciously select yours or did you just copy what you saw someone else doing?  What do you know about nautical flag etiquette and usage?  This article addresses this topic.

yacht club burgess

According to the US Power Squadron, “Flags are often too small…The national ensign flown at a flag staff on the stern of your boat should be one inch on the fly (long end) for each foot of overall length.”

Flag —One class of flags is called the “international maritime signal flags.”  According to Wikipedia, there is a signal flag “for each letter of the alphabet, and pennant for numerals.  Each flag (except the R flag) has an additional meaning when flown individually, and they take on other meanings in certain combinations.”  For more information on the meanings of international maritime signal flags click on this link:  http://www.marinewaypoints.com/learn/flags/flags.shtml   It is more common to see the international maritime signal flags displayed on sailboats than pleasure power boats.

Did you know?

  • The word for the scientific study of the history, symbolism and usage of flags is vexillology.
  • The position of honor on a ship is the quarterdeck at the stern of a ship, and thus ensigns are traditionally flown either from the ensign staff at the ship’s stern, or from a gaff rigged over the stern.
  • The general rule that no flag is flown higher than the national flag does not apply onboard a ship.  A flag flown at the stern is always in a superior position to a flag flown elsewhere on the ship, even if the latter is higher up. (Wikipedia—maritime flag). 
  • If you take your boat to international or foreign waters, the traditional United States ensign should be flown.
  • You should avoid flying more than one ensign from a single halyard or antenna.
  • Massachusetts and Maine are the only two states with their own maritime flags (special versions of the state flags for use afloat).
  • There is an international burgee registry. http://www.burgees.com/burgeeframe.htm
  • To learn more about maritime flag etiquette: http://www.usps.org/f_stuff/etiquett.html
  • If you are into vexillology and want to see some really weird flag designs, check out https://www.reddit.com/r/vexillology/ or click here to see vexillology Youtube videos. Click here to check out the National Maritime Museum’s historical collection of flags.

So, having a little fun with our vexillology topic, if you or your ACBS Chapter were to design a flag, what would it look like? 

Send  your pictures, reports, announcements, and boat biographies to  [email protected]

Nice informative piece, thx. One concern: I recently ordered and attempted to fly the ACBS burgee on my ’55 Chris-Craft Continental 22′ and discoverd that the height measurement (~13″) is way too long for my canted mast (pins are about 9″ apart). Has ACBS considered a more “runabout” size for a burgee?

I contacted the company that we purchase the burgees from. The company offers a 10″ size which should place the grommet holes about 9″ apart. If you would like me to order one for you, let me know if you prefer cotton or nylon and slanted or straight. The cost is $39.

This added information came from Gene Porter: “Your yacht ensign info is inaccurate or remiss in that it fails to note that the yacht ensign must never be flown in international or foreign waters since it has no standing as a national ensign. [from the Power Squadron web site]

This is particularly applicable in such areas as the Thousand Islands where US boats frequent Canadian waters, too often flying illegal flags.

Thank you, Gene. One of the advantages of being in this organization is that information is shared from many sources. The website committee invites comments and discussions. It helps us all be more informed.

I fly the flag and ensign that was actually shipped from Century in June of 1959 when my Gray V8 powered 16 ‘ Resorter was delivered to Ithaca NY, she has only had two owners and moved 15 miles North still on Cayuga l and is now used mostly for sunset rides, she saw many hours as a competition ski boat as her original owner was a skier for many years she has also made the trip from Sodus Bay NY across Lake Ontario to the St. Lawrence seaway twice a year for many years to his cottage on the St Lawrence.

Great article but I believe you left out an important fact about the U S ensign. Congress in 1914 or 1916, please don’t hold me to the dates, pasted a law that made the United States Power Squadrons flag an official flag for U S yachts. Bob Korts Member USPS since 1960.

Did you know original ensign flags had sewn stars not embroidered stars like we see today. The stars were cut out of fabric and sewn around the edges.

Discover the best yacht clubs in the world

Published 15 November 2023

Renowned for their historic sailing traditions, stunning locations and exclusive membership, the most prestigious yacht clubs in the world offer a unique social hub for like-minded yachting enthusiasts to enjoy. As social venues go, the worlds these clubs inhabit have the upper hand, particularly during some of their regattas. Burgess takes a look behind the scenes at some of the best yacht clubs in the world. 

What is a yacht club: history.

Founded in 1720, the Royal Cork Yacht Club was a forerunner and became the first formally established yacht club in the world. Before this time, yachts were typically owned by royalty, but as non-royals began to purchase or build their own yachts to sail and race, clubs began to form to aid in the organisation of such races and regattas.  

Be a part of something exclusive and prestigious

Then, and now, few institutions compete with the exclusivity and prestige of a yacht club. Whether founded by a prince, boasting a rich history and tradition, or as a recent addition to the most highly ranked yacht clubs in the world, being an esteemed member of any of these yacht clubs is the pinnacle of yachting for many. The majority of the clubhouses are located in iconic seaside settings (or in major cities, as is the case for the New York Yacht Club) and have world-class amenities. Upholding sailing traditions to this day, every yacht club will organise regattas and racing, and a few have also become training centres for young sailors.  

Enjoy the members-only facilities and host social events

Members can also benefit from club facilities which can include anything from grand and stately rooms for entertaining and socialising in, to swimming pools, concierge services, high-end restaurants, and, most importantly, a yachting community to socialise and network with. With all this typically comes a high joining and membership fee and a rigorous application process, including recommendations and meticulous screening, meaning that the resulting membership pool are a close-knit community of generally like-minded people.  

What to wear to a yacht club?

Remaining traditional, most yacht clubs have specific guidelines for dress code inside their clubs. Depending on the time of day or event, the dress code for men is usually collared shirts or polos rather than t-shirts, with trousers rather than shorts and closed-toe shoes. Ties are not usually required for lunch, and, given the locations of most of the clubs, light colours and light fabrics are also advisable.  

Be comfortable and look elegant at the same time

For ladies, tops should not be strappy or too casual, while skirts or dresses should be a suitable length. Trousers for ladies are also acceptable at most clubs, while footwear of any style, other than trainers or flip flops, are allowed. Hats of any sort are usually also forbidden inside.  

The best yacht clubs in the world

There are thousands of yacht clubs in the world but only a handful are considered to be elite . Whether famed for their historic sailing traditions, their sumptuous settings or their excellent facilities, one thing all of our selected yacht clubs have in common is their exclusive and respected membership.  

The Royal Yacht Squadron  

Not quite the world’s oldest club, but one of the most famous of the historic ones, the Royal Yacht Squadron (RYS) was established in 1815. Originally set up as a local club by 42 original members with an interest in yachting, its royal association began just two years after its founding when the Prince Regent, later King George IV, became a member. Later on, when he acceded to become King, it was then renamed the Royal Yacht Squadron and its clubhouse is Cowes Castle on the Isle of Wight, UK.

The Royal Yacht Squadron holds a lot history

The club has always attracted famous and illustrious members. As well as George IV, Nelson’s Captain at Trafalgar Admiral Sir Thomas Hardy was a founder member, and later the explorer Robert Falcon Scott (Scott of the Antarctic). These famous members and royal associations secured its reputation as one of the most influential yachting establishments. It was RYS’s commodore who originally challenged the New York Yacht Club and their racing yacht America to a round-the-island race in 1851 – a contest now known as the America’s Cup (see NYYC below). The RYS also initiated the regatta racing rule which mandates racing yachts to give way to the vessel on the starboard tack (a rule which must have saved countless accidents since its inception).  

Watch all the reading action from the shore

Today the club hosts several regattas, the most famous of which is Cowes Week. There are just over 500 members of the Royal Yacht Squadron, 75 of whom are Naval members and 60 of whom are Honorary members.  Only British yacht club members are permitted to fly the White Ensign on their yachts – a unique privilege for Squadron members only those dates back to 1829 when it was gifted to them by King William, who was himself a member. Membership to the club is by recommendation from existing members and subject to a secret ballot.  

New York Yacht Club

The New York Yacht Club (NYYC) was established in 1844 by John Cox Stevens. He was the owner of the schooner America, with which he triumphed against a fleet of British yachts in 1851 in what became the prequel to the America’s Cup race named after his vessel. Between 1857 and 1983 the NYYC then successfully defended the cup a further 25 times, before eventually losing it to the Royal Perth Yacht Club’s yacht AUSTRALIA II. This was and still is the longest winning streak (in terms of years) in any sport.  

The club held it's first Annual Regatta on 17 July 1845

From transatlantic victories to its famous ‘cruises’, the club has been a founder of many of yachting’s great firsts. Since losing the cup to Australia in 1983, the club has welcomed younger sailors to its two clubhouses: one in a stunning Beaux-Arts building in Manhattan and the other in a grander waterfront location in Newport, Rhode Island.  The former is a jacket and tie establishment, and the latter provides members with access to the ideal sailing conditions promised by the deep waters around Rhode Island. Today, the club’s burgee, which only club members are permitted to fly, is recognised the yachting world over. 

Yacht Club de Monaco

Founded in 1953 by Prince Rainier III of Monaco, the Yacht Club de Monaco is a relatively new entrant to the scene which nevertheless holds a unique position in international yachting. Created from the old Société des Regates, its aim was to promote yachting within the Principality, and judging by the number of yachts which populate Monaco’s Port Hercule it has certainly succeeded. The Club is twinned with several clubs, including two of the world’s leading yacht clubs – the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda and the Real Club Nautico de Barcelona. Members are therefore able to participate in sporting activities held between clubs and access each other’s clubhouse and facilities.  

Soak in the beautiful view of Port Hercules

The Yacht Club de Monaco’s major focus is racing, but the social scene is not far behind. This is a club with such an exclusive members’ list that although it is the place to be seen, the members remain discreet. His Royal Highness, Prince Sovereign Albert II, has been Club President since 1984 and is also responsible for the clubhouse that opened in 2014.

Located at the heart of the Principality overlooking Port Hercules, the futuristic-styled Norman Foster designed building resembles a yacht with a series of deck-like terraces, all offering spectacular views over the Mediterranean. A fantastic venue for socialising and entertaining with all manner of events for the yachting community, including exclusive parties and events throughout the Monaco Yacht Show , the clubhouse is also home to the 1909 Restaurant, the Sunrise Restaurant, the Aquarama Riva Bar, Observatory Deck, and the Ballroom. Members also have access to a large outdoor swimming pool and lounge deck area.  

Explore the surroundings and experience the Monaco nightlife

Membership is extremely limited and prospective candidates are rigorously vetted. Applications must be supported by two existing members and if successful, they are welcomed with a party and dinner in their honour. Given its exclusive nature, a formal dress code for day and evening wear is mandatory for all.  

Yacht Club Costa Smeralda

Founded in 1967 by HH the Aga Khan, the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS) is one of the leading yacht clubs in the Mediterranean. Amongst the world’s most eminent yachting destinations, Sardinia’s Porto Cervo and the surrounding waters are the club’s main draw. This coastline provides ideal conditions for sailing and as a result the club hosts some of the world’s most prestigious regattas, including the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup, the Rolex Swan Cup, and the Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta.  

Yacht Club Costa Smeralda has so much to offer its members from dining to amenities

Aside from its impressive racing calendar, the YCCS has become one of the most luxurious locations for superyachts throughout the summer season. With an impressive social scene, the clubhouse literally buzzes with high-profile members stepping ashore from their yachts to enjoy its many amenities. The clubhouse itself also offers a panoramic pool terrace, al fresco dining, a wellness centre and spa, and a member’s lounge and bar, while also located within walking distance is the Pevero Golf Club and Cala Granu Beach.  

Indulge in Smeralda's al fresco dining at a range of restaurants on club grounds

Membership is strict, with a new member having to be proposed by two current members. A Club Uniform is available for YCCS members and must be worn if participating in certain events when members are officially representing the Club. Evening attire also requires the typical clubhouse attire, with long trousers and a shirt (no t-shirts) and closed shoes for men, while ladies must wear a suitable length skirt or trousers.  Along with the Yacht Club de Monaco, the YCCS is twinned with the prestigious New York Yacht Club and the Royal Yacht Squadron.  

St Francis Yacht Club 

The St Francis Yacht Club (StFYC) is one of the world’s most prestigious sailing clubs. It is also one of the oldest American yacht clubs, having been founded in 1927 when a few members from the San Francisco Yacht Club decided to move their clubhouse from Sausalito to Belvedere.  

Today, the Mediterranean Revival-style clubhouse affords dazzling views over the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the infamous Alcatraz. More importantly, it provides access to some of the most spectacular sailing waters in the world, with berthing on the shores of San Francisco Bay and access to the private Tinsley Island in the Sacramento Delta.  

St Francis Yacht Club is located along the San Francisco Bay offering picturesque views

St Francis Yacht Club members enjoy a busy schedule of racing events, including the Rolex Big Boat Series. The Club also hosts a series of social events within its clubhouse dining and multiple event spaces. The dress code for social engagements is formal, with clubhouse attire post 6pm requiring jackets for men and the equivalent evening dress for ladies. Membership to the club is by invitation only, with nominations sponsored by between one and three existing members based on the level of membership required.  

Dubai Marina Yacht Club

It may not hold the historic prestige of the other yacht clubs featured here, but what the Dubai Marina Yacht Club lacks in history it certainly makes up for in facilities and luxury. Located in the heart of New Dubai, the Club is one of the largest yacht clubs in the world, encompassing five marinas located along the Persian Gulf coastline. Enveloped by soaring skyscrapers on either side, the Club House Marina lies at the heart of the Dubai Marina Yacht Club, while the West Bay Marina is perfectly located for ease of access to the sea. 

Great weather and a skyscraper backdrop, what more do you need?

East Marina and the Marina Promenade offer an array of restaurants and shopping arcades, and the Marina Mall is the entertainment and retail hub. Member lounges are spread across the facility, including the Aquara Lounge and the Yots Sports lounge.  Amenities across all marinas include several member lounges and a 24/7 concierge service. Being a Dubai Marina Yacht Club member allows for berthing perks, a 24/7 concierge service, access to water taxis, pools, and gyms, and invites to yachting events dedicated to showcasing the region’s geography and culture.  

Grand Bahama Yacht Club

With its easily navigated deep-water marina on the island of Grand Bahama, the Grand Bahama Yacht Club in Freeport is one of the most prominent marinas in the Caribbean. Welcoming large yachts to its convenient location just to the north of The Bahamas archipelago, the Club is a designated Bahamas Port of Entry and often the first port-of-call in The Bahamas for yachts coming from Florida.

Grand Bahama Yacht Club offers members a range of activities from tennis to big game fishing

Membership of the Grand Bahama Yacht Club includes access to the turn-of-the-century modern clubhouse with its European architecture and lush tropical landscaping. It also has an Olympic-sized swimming pool, and 24/7 security.  

Cruising Yacht Club of Australia

Founded in 1944, The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia (CYCA) has become Australia’s most prestigious yacht club. Host to the famous Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, the club has world-class facilities for both the sailing elite and its members, who also enjoy access to the club’s comprehensive sailing programme.

Nothing like sailing under the Sydeny Harbour Bridge on a sunny day

Nestled along the Rushcutters Bay foreshore, the modern clubhouse enjoys stunning harbour views, a large 213-berth marina, function rooms, and other clubhouse amenities including a bar and lounge. Membership to the CYCA is on a referral basis.  

Barbados Yacht Club

The Barbados Yacht Club is located on Carlisle Bay and as such it provides access to stunning beaches and ideal sailing conditions that the Caribbean is known for. From the beach bar to tennis to a host of sailing programmes, members benefit from a wide array of both sailing and social activities.  

Attend regattas hosted by the club or explore further into Barbados

Like many of the other clubs in this list, the Barbados Yacht Club hosts a variety of regattas, including the Mount Gay Rum Barbados Regatta along with recreational activities like tennis and sailing programmes, while the clubhouse also has a restaurant and bar for socialising. Membership to the Barbados Yacht Club is through a monthly ballot and is based on sailing performance.

Burgee Sizes

Here are some suggestions for you to consider when trying to determine the appropriate burgee size for your boat.  Much of this information is provided by the U.S. Power Squadron.   There is no one-size-fits-all policy for nautical flags. Flag size on boats is determined by the size of the boat - either overall vessel length, or the height above the waterline of the tallest mast. This practice is based on longstanding nautical tradition.

 
up to 30' 10x15" burgee
31' to 36' 12x18" burgee
37' to 42' 14x21" burgee
43' to 48' 16x24" burgee
49' to 54' 18x27" flag

A national ensign flown at the flagstaff should be one inch on the fly for each foot of overall length of the vessel. So a 30 foot vessel should fly a national ensign that has at least a 30 inch fly.

All other flags on power boats should be 5/8 inch on the fly for each foot of overall length. On sailboats, however, they should be 1/2 inch on the fly for each foot above the waterline of the tallest mast on the boat. (That is, if the top of the mast is 30 feet above the waterline, these other flags should be 15 inches on the fly.)

When purchasing a flag, the size of the flag is usually rounded up to the next larger commercially available size because more often than not the flags worn by a boat are too small.   While a large number of boaters operate a boat that requires a 12 x 18 inch burgee, that burgee would be way too small for a 50' boat. Since proper flag display is one measure of a good seaman, boaters should obtain and fly properly sized flags on their boat.

74m CRN superyacht Andrea sold in off-market deal

The 74-metre CRN superyacht Andrea has been sold in an off-market deal with Burgess representing the buyer and both Y.CO and Burgess representing the seller.

Delivered from Ancona, in Italy in 2017, the steel and aluminium yacht was commissioned for an experienced owner and designed in a collaboration between Winch Design and Zuccon International Project. She has had a string of names over the years, including Lady Jorgia , Odyssey and Cloud 9 and has proved herself to be a hugely popular yacht for charter .

The brokers said that Winch Design was appointed to create the exterior guest areas, livery, interior decoration and owner's supply, "resulting in excess of over 1,000 square metres of design elements being created across all decks".

Accommodation is provided for a party of 12 guests in eight cabins, comprising six doubles and two convertible double/twin cabins, all accessible by the elevator. There is a private deck forward of the master suite and the VIP cabin has opening doors for fresh air. Quarters for a crew of 25 are provided.

Andrea's beauty salon and spa area, with full gym facilities, features a fold-out terrace, perfect for a relaxing massage when at anchor.

A huge swim platform and beach club aft is large enough for sea-level dining and acts as an alternative open-air option to the sundeck's dining table. Here, there is also a Teppanyaki bar for the chef to cook at the table. 

The yacht also plays host to a formal dining room with a circular table and retractable glass doors allowing for a semi-enclosed al fresco experience. A space in the bow can be converted into a dance floor with disco lighting and sound systems.

A rectangular 10,000-litre main deck pool, with spa jets, has a glass bottom letting light filter through to the beach club below. Guests can also opt for the circular Jacuzzi, which is positioned up top.

Powered by twin 2,682hp Caterpillar diesels, Andrea's top speed is 16 knots and cruising speed is 13 knots. Range of the 2,218GT yacht is some 6,000 nautical miles.

Having recently arrived in the Mediterranean from the USA, Andrea was P.O.A.
