The Royal Naval Sailing Association have their web site at
http://www.rnsa.net. Their pages show their
burgee as a logo.
We don't cover this burgee directly, but for the Royal Australian Naval Sailing Association, we include the remark: "The RANSA burgee is exactly the same as its British counterpart: white, red St. George's Cross, blue naval crown in the middle."
And we have David Prothero reporting on 22 January 2008:
"1936. First ensign for an Association as opposed to a Club: Royal Naval Sailing Association, Blue Ensign."
The logo on the website is indeed close to that shown at Royal Australian Naval Sailing Association. The crown may be slightly larger, and the edges of its white background may run slightly differently, but that's about it.
Photographs showing several, not quite equal, burgees can be found at:
At http://www.rnsa.net/Sections/news.aspx?SectionID=40&ItemID=1306 is an image of what appears to be the Rear Commodore flag:
It has a smaller crown, maybe 1/3rd of the hoist in height, and has a red ball centred on each of the hoist quarters. This suggests that the Vice-Commodore will have the same with just the one ball in the top hoist quarter. I wonder whether the Commodore too will have the smaller crown. I also wonder, since the club lists an Admiral as their first flag officer, whether there's an Admiral's flag.
