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!

speaking of cartoon characters, did anyone else notice that the cartoon Kim Basinger, in cool world, was hotter than the real woman? how wrong is that? lol

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.....

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.
