Association Nautique de l'Ile aux Moines

[AN Ile-aux-Moines]by Ivan Sache

Ile aux Moines (Monks' Island) is a small island and municipality located in the Gulf of Morbihan.
Gulf of Morbihan (in Breton 'small sea') is a small gulf of ca. 20 km width, separated from Atlantic Ocean by a narrow strait of 1 km width.
In the first century before J.C., Julius Caesar defeated the Venetes during a naval fight in what is now the Gulf of Morbihan (but geologists do not all agree that the Gulf was already constituted at that time.)

The Association Nautique de l'Ile aux Moines has a yellow burgee with a black border and the black letters ANIM.

Société des Régates de Lorient

[Flag of SRL]by Ivan Sache

The Société des Régates de Lorient has a nearly square white flag with a canton made of a horizontally divided blue-red-blue, swallow-tailed flag.
The flag in canton is the arrondissement flag, which was hoisted by civil ships registered in Lorient. Since those flags were abandoned long time ago, that flag of SRL of might be outdated, too.

[SN La trinité]by Ivan Sache

La Trinité-sur-Mer is a sea resort of c. 1,500 inhabitats located on the Atlantic Ocean, at the mouth of the river Crach. The city is named after a chapel consecrated to the Holy Trinity.

After the building of a modern marina in 1970, La Trinité rapidly became the Mecca of French offshore yachting. Several "Formula-One" sailboats are moored there.

The Société Nautique de la Trinité-sur-Mer was founded in 1879 and is currently the French yacht club with the largest membership. Its burgee is a 1:2 triangular flag, horizontally divided blue-red with two white triangles placed along the hoist.

Yacht Club de Carnac

[YC Carnac]by Ivan Sache

Carnac is a city of 4,444 inhabitants. The city is famous for its megalithic alignments (more than 2,000 menhirs and a few dolmens, erected between 5000 and 2000 B.P.). Menhirs are erected stones. Dolmens are the stone frameworks of underground funerary rooms whose earth backfill has disappeared, so that they look like a stone table. Several legends have been associated with menhirs and dolmens, not to mention the most famous menhir cutter and thrower, Obélix.

The Yacht Club de Carnac has a light blue burgee with a white sail over two white waves at hoist and a yellow dolmen at fly.
