Iate Clube Brasileiro, Niterói, Rio de Janeiro

Yacht Club Brasileiro

Founded 1906, the first yacht club in Brazil. The burgee, with three white stars on a red field, is similar to that of the more prominent IC Rio de Janeiro, which has three gold stars on blue, but I don't know if there's a connection.

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.

Clube de Regatas Guanabara, Rio de Janeiro

Founded 1899, apparently the first rowing club in Rio. The burgee as shown on the club badge is light blue with the club initials CRG in the hoist. It now includes sailing as well as rowing among its activities.

Rio Yacht Club, Niterói

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.
