"The meeting was held at the Castle Hotel in Wind Street, Swansea on 24th February 1875 to promote a new yacht club. . . . to be called the Bristol Channel Yacht Club and the station to be at The Mumbles; that the new yacht club be amalgamated with the Mumbles Billiard Club . . . "

The (German) Flaggenbuch 1905 states that the red ensign is used without
badge (i.e. undefaced) by different yacht clubs based on a warrant and lists
this yacht club as using the red ensign.
