As a former racing man I have always regarded any flag on the back of a boat as unnecessary windage and a waste of a good laminar air flow.
However, a flagstaff would make a great place to put a camera attached to a gorillapod of some sort
It also occurred to me that the right flag against the right background might give me a few more shots.
So…. I have come to the conclusion that Katie L should have a flag of some sort. Maybe she should have a few which has got me looking around for candidates
I live in Buckinghamshire
but our county flag has an element of the Fascist about it in some way
I did my first sailing in Essex and spent much of my youth there
Far topo warlike and Sinbad for my liking
then there is Suffolk where I went to School
I am a Londoner by birth
but people would assume I am a football fan
then of course there is the only flag that I should fly – which is the Red Ensign
it can look like a tatty duster – aesthetically it does not cut the mustard – especially when the wind is blowing in the wrong direction
I quite like the Royal Standard
but that would really upset a few people
the one I really like the look of is this one – it tells the story of my mongrel race
I am jealous of the Yanks, canadians and most of our European neighbours who can just go ahead and fly their national Flag.
I am open to suggestions chaps
and – how big should it be
