Yacht Club "Italiano"

by Jose C. Alegria, 5 Febuary 2000

Only one Club in Italy, AFAIK, the "Yacht Club Italiano", Genoa, is granted the use of a special national ensign. The Club, established in 1879, as "Regio Yacht Club Italiano", was presided in 1935 by His Royal Highness Amedeo di Savoia, and in 1942 "e conferito līonore ed il diritto di battere la Bandiera della Marina Militare. Diritto revocato dal Capo di Stato Maggiore del Ministero Difesa-Marina nel 1967." Which means they were granted the right and the honor of flying the Italian Naval Military flag, but I have a doubt about the Italian word "revocato". If it means revoked, then the privilege is over since 1967, but later editions of "Lloydīs Register of Shipping" still published the military flag as the Clubīs ensign. If the privilege was revoked, they can still use the Civil Ensign, that is, with the lion of Venice holding a book, not a sword, and without the naval crown.

Yacht Club "Punta Ala"

by Jose C. Alegria, 12 Febuary 2000

Well, the Louis Vuitton Cup is over. This competition is done to decide who will challenge the world most important sailing trophy: the Americaīs Cup, and, for the first time since 1851, the Americaīs cup race will have no boat from the U.S.A. competing on it. Thatīs because New Zealandīs boat won the trophy in 1995 and, now, the winners of the Louis Vuitton Cup, and , therefore, the challengers againts N.Z. will be Italians. Every boat must be presented by a yacht club, and New Zealandīs defending Club is the  "Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron", Auckland, New Zealand. The challengers, the Louis Vuitton Cup winners are from the "Yacht Club Punta Ala", Punta Ala, Grosseto, Italy. The Club was established in 1976, and has no special Ensign privileges, therefore will be using the Italian civil ensign. Their burgee is blue+, with a yellow border 1/15 the height wide, and a yellow bird .
