The East Belfast Yacht Club (N. Ireland, UK) maintains a modest website: http://eastbelfastyachtclub.yolasite.com. We learn right away that in 1904 Belfast shipyard workers founded the club which is now situated near the local airport, its activities not limited to sailing but also including refurbishing and actually building boats. “We have become established as the main non professional producer and knowledge base for boats built from Ferro-cement in Ireland, and have had visitors from many countries in Europe who wished to avail of our knowledge on the subject.”

Shown as a drawing at the end of above page, the club burgee is dark blue with a white shield near the hoist bearing a red seahorse facing the fly.
