Flying the American flag off the the leach of the sail while under sail or off the stern of the boat under power is correct. When entering a foreign country and before clearing immigration and customs you must fly the "Q" (For Quarantine) on the starboard spreader. Upon clearing immigration and customs, you lower the "Q" flag and raise the flag of the host country. DO NOT FLY THE HOST COUNTRY FLAG BEFORE CLEARING THEIR IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS.
