YC burgee etiguette

Reading the various publications available it's pretty clear that the "rules" say you should only fly one club burgee at any given time, and that you should (duh) fly the burgee of the club whose event/facility you are attending. Makes sense for such occasions to be sure.

When cruising alone ourselves, however, a benefit of flying your club burgees is to inform others that you're a member, and can lead to meeting fellow members or interested parties that you may not yet have met. This can enhance the cruising experience, and lead to new friends, etc.

My question today is this:
We are active members of two clubs, and of course have a Sailnet burgee as well.. Is it "gauche" of us to fly all three burgees on the flag halyard for the reasons stated above? I'd qualify also that these are rather casual clubs, not of the vaunted "Royal" labels....

What say you experts??

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You can check the etiquette in Chapman's, they have a pretty good chapter on flag etiquette

Lets see here, CYCE, EYC, AS, SN, Cascadia, maybe NWSHS? eee gads............

Not that I have burgees for all, only two actually, but still. When alone and you want to meet others etc.......what does one do? I believe most of us do not want to be politically incorrect on purpose.

JOhn,

Fly away on all of them. Its a great way to meet old friends and make new ones. Miss Manners doesnt patrol our corner of the Chesapeake anway or all the "go fast" boats would suddenly vanish.

I have 5 Figawi burgees that I fly in the Chesapeake now that we're down here. That really confuses everyone. (Won my class in 1987, but didn't get the Rolex. (Wish the Governor's Cup was a 3 day event (took 2nd place and beat Navy 3 years ago in the same boat)...S&S designed Chris Craft Apache 37.

If you belong to more than one YC, as I do, the senior YC goes on top, etc. on down. However, if you are visiting one of the other clubs, then that one should go on top. Senior doesn't necessarily mean just oldest. Check with the BC Yachting Assn if necessary.
