Burgee of Clube Naval, Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)by Joseph McMillan

The club statute describes the flag and burgee (corneta) of the club but does not illustrate them. I used the anchor depicted on the club badge as the model. The club, founded in 1884, has its in-town clubhouse at Botafogo Beach, its yachting facility at Charitas in Niterói, across Guanabara Bay, and its social and rowing facility at Piraquê in Rio's Zona Sul.

Rio Yacht Club, Niterói

Rio Yacht Club, Niterói (Brazil)by Joseph McMillan

Founded in 1914 by Englishmen who were dissatisfied with the Yacht Club Brasileiro's emphasis on social activities over sailing. The English connection will be obvious--it's a pennant of St. George.
