The Club

In the message about the Carrickfergus Sailing Club the foundation, in 1866, of the Carrickfergus Rowing Club was mentioned. In fact the merger in 1922 brought the ‘Carrickfergus Rowing Club incorporating Carrickfergus Sailing Club’ into being; at a later date (the history section of CSC takes us up to 1984) there may have occurred an administrative split. In any case CARC flags are shown on the CSC website but first see the little emblem at top right: http://archive.carrickfergussc.org/1999/Racing/RyaYouthChampionships/Results.htm. This photo shows a white flag bearing a red cross throughout (St George) and red initials “CARC” placed in the resulting fields (this item seems to be double-sided): http://gallery.carrickfergussc.org/p43923231.html whereas here (two pictures) we see basically the same flag with vertical edges, also red, added to the hoist and the fly, and the red-and-white CSC burgee, fimbriated white, placed in the centre: http://gallery.carrickfergussc.org/p18724750.html and http://gallery.carrickfergussc.org/p43923177.htm. Judging by the emblem of first link, this must be the CARC flag proper.

This photo detail evokes the continued(?) or historic(?) merger of CARC and CSC.
