Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

In response to the no top tier racer displaying the jolly roger, I submit the following; Paul Cayard and the Black Pearl in the 2006 Volvo. They had the jolly roger plastered all over their boat including their battle flag as shown below.



Paulo, did I read correctly that you are a retired art teacher? Primary or secondary schools? Have you posted samples of your artwork on-line?

heck! i just noticed the little blue type, in the quote. Titus beat me to it!

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

George,

AGAIN, as I tried to state earlier, the flag that you refer to, is "THAT" boats own flag. I would imagine that some of the other V70 boats have a sponsor per say, and they fly a flag/burgee etc that represents the sponsor per say.....

ANyway, not sure whom is cuter, the cartoon WInston in the avitar flag, or him himself.....


Marty

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!

i beg to differ with you. that flag looks like the image from 'pirates of the caribbean' to me. the boat's name is certainly from it. that would mean it's not a flag specifically designed for that boat.

If it makes my 6 year old grandson happy and want to go sailing, It's not too lame. Al Frakes, Port Kent on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain.
