What's Wrong with the CF Burgee ...

... is that it is too darn small. It's not recognizable beyond a few yards distance. It should be twice, no, three times as large or it's just like flying a hanky.

Re: What's wrong with the CF burgee ...

To be fair, it's larger than most other burgees I have seen.

But perhaps you could have one printed up on your sail?

CF Burgee and anchoring...

I gave our CF burgee a fair workout over Christmas.

At the busiest and most crowded time of year the only result was that no one came near us.

Maybe we should promote it as an anchoring aid!

Fly the cf burgee and never be crowded on the hook!

Re: What's wrong with the CF burgee ...

Mine looks big hanging on the wall. lol Haven't put it in the weather yet. Saving it as an original collector's item. In a hundred years this burgee will be worth a lot of money.

It only becomes a collectors item if you get it autographed by Sarafina.
