Looking about their website I came across this rather interesting text of a Royal Warrant:

Royal Warrant


Dated 9th. April, 1924, His Majesty King George V has been graciously pleased to bestow the title "Royal" upon the Royal Brighton Yacht Club.


Dated 27th. March, 1924, under the Seal of the Office of the Lord High Admiral of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Members of the Royal Brighton Yacht Club are permitted to wear on board their respective vessels the Blue Ensign of His Majesty’s Fleet on certain conditions and laid down in said Warrant.

[Royal Brighton Yacht Club burgee] image by Clay Moss, 29 May 2007

The Dumpy Pocket Book of Sailing Dinghies and Yachts, of 1960, has the Royal Brighton Yacht Club (Middle Brighton, Australia) with almost the same Burgee as that of the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club in Perth and the Royal Thames Yacht Club in the United Kingdom. The only difference it that the arms of the cross might be marginally wider, allowing the (Tudor) crown to come free from the upper two corners of the intersection.

I've looked up their website, and I see that they indeed use this burgee, with an Edwardian crown, so you can judge for yourselves from the image there.
