Cost of burgees. Pennants from Prestige Flag out of San Diego cost our club members $20. Are stitched and can fly for a long time. I'm certain there must be other companies that can do it.

I have no connection with the company but they certainly don't need to cost $100.

The less colors and a simple design keeps the cost down.

Our club gets them from Prestige too. We charge $20 but we keep a few dollars. We've shopped around and it's hard to find good a good crusing burgee that is well made and hold up for a price.

It's a basic burgeee. Navy field and a white cut out emblem sewn both sides. The edges are rolled and sewn and then bound on heavy cloth with brass gromets like you see on a national flag. They have a newer process now that I think holds up better.

An embrioidered burgee might do well depending on the thread. It just wouldn't be double sided. After they flap silly in a few gales with some UC they can start to come unsewn, the tip frays from cracking like a whip, then it starts to really degrade.

If you only flew it when you cruised and wear one out you know you had some great sailing in between.

The Charlie Foxtrot codes are symmetrical, so can be sewn through.

I hate to break this to you, but the Normans were not "pre-France", but they were French themselves. They spoke French, which is why France was the language of the ruling classes of England for a few centuries after 1066. Sorry.

The name "Normans" derives from "Norsemen", after the Vikings (ie: Rollo or Rollon in 911) who founded Normandy (in the N. of France).

The Norman language is a patois, based upon French & Norse dialects.

Pray tell, how did a thread about the CF burgee turn into a history lesson? Man, you guys are too funny! Wish I knew about CF while writing my college papers.

Some of us ole' salts get caught in the tide, drag anchor and drift off into narrow channels.

CF is not only an info site but a social group as well, otherwise it would be called cruisipedia. One can just give way to the BS if not interested.

Not even an accurate technicality.

The founding "Norman" was Robert (?) Rollo, a VIKING of either Nowegian or Danish (in any case, Norse) background. The only thing French about the Normans is their location.
