Register of Yachts, 1930.
Est: 15 July 1893.
Location: Santa Lucia Quay, Naples.
Burgee: Pennant 1:2. Blue field, superimposed by the shield and crown of Savoy fimbriated blue and centred on a white St. George's cross.
Note: The club was established in 1893, as the Circolo
Canottieri Sebezia, by eleven former members of the Circolo del Roma and della
Vela Italia. The new club inherited a four-man rowing boat named Nautilus which
they entered in the Naples-Capri-Naples race, but sadly three of the crew
drowned. In August 1894, with a declining membership due to this loss, the club
turned to King Umberto I for help and, in 1895, changed its name to the Yacht
Club Canottieri Savoia. In remembrance of the three lost members the blue field
of the burgee was changed to black. In 1900 King Vittorio Emanuele III granted
the club the "Royal Circle licence" and the burgee’s black field reverted to

Well, the Louis Vuitton Cup is over. This competition is done
to decide who will challenge the world most important sailing
trophy: the America's Cup, and, for the first time since 1851,
the America's cup race will have no boat from the U.S.A.
competing on it. That's because New Zealand's boat won the
trophy in 1995 and, now, the winners of the Louis Vuitton Cup,
and , therefore, the challengers against N.Z. will be Italians.
Every boat must be presented by a yacht club, and New Zealand's
defending Club is the "Royal New Zealand Yacht
Squadron", Auckland, New Zealand. The challengers, the Louis
Vuitton Cup winners are from the "Yacht Club Punta
Ala", Punta Ala, Grosseto, Italy. The Club was established
in 1976, and has no special Ensign privileges, therefore will be
using the Italian civil ensign. Their burgee is blue+, with a
yellow border 1/15 the height wide, and a yellow bird .

Seen in a 2001 issue of the Slovene newspaper Delo, a graphic of a prepaid
phone card depicting (for some reason) the burgees of two sailing clubs
organized by and catering to the Slovene minority around Trieste. The clubs are
Triestine Maritime Club "Siren," Barkovlje - blue, logo near hoist: angular
white anchor over the Trieste halberd in red and inclined ~50 deg. In the fly,
the word "SIRENA" in white caps. and Sailing Club "Čupa," Sesljan -
blue/white/blue, 1:2:2, in the center a red rhomboid 1/4 hoist height and
touching the edges.
Eugene Ipavec, 5 October 2012
The full name of the club is in Slovenian and Italian: Tržaški pomorski klub
"Sirena" Amatersko športno društvo / Club nautico triestino "Sirena"
Associazione sportiva dilettantistica. See
http://www.slosport.org/drustva/sirena.html. Established in 1924 and renewed
in 1976. This site shows the burgee - with a slight difference from Eugene's
drawing - the red fleur-de-lis is in front of the white anchor. The club web
site is at http://www.tpkcntsirena.it/
Here: http://www.slosport.org/novice/2011/1103obcnizbor25TPKSirena.html one may see the actual burgee (used as a table flag) as well as the flag of the club, which seems to be rectangular blue flag ca. 3:5, with the same elements, but the emblem is in the centre and the inscription below it. A quick images search on Google with the club name reveals other photos of the flag in use. The club is member of both Italian and Slovenian national sporting associations.

I am the House Chair at the South Coast Corinthian Yacht Club.
Our ceiling of our Yacht Club displays all of the burgees of our
guests and sailing trips since 1932. We were founded in 1932 by
Humourist Will Rogers and Wiley Post in Santa Monica, California
We are trying to identify a Yacht Club Burgee from Italy. It appears to have the inscription of Societa Canottier Ansonia Grado Italy with the logo in the center display of ASC and green stripes on a white background. The ASC are in a design so It may be SAC or CAS - we are not sure.

It is the burgee of the Societá Canottieri
Ausonia, located in Grado (Gorizia), Italy. They also have a sailing team.
Burgee can be seen at www.grado-online.net.

The flagoid in the logo is a long white triangular flag with a
very wide green cross throughout (width ~1/3 of the flag's
height) but not touching the edge at the fly); on its center a
white round disc (diameter ~1/2 of the flag's height) with an
orange "SCA" on it: large "S" with small
"CA" on its middle horizontal stroke.
