Coleraine Yacht Club is located on the N. coast of N. Ireland (UK), to the E.
of Lough Foyle. Founded in 1962 as the River Bann Boat Club, the club received
its present name after the move to Coleraine a few years later. A RYA Training
Centre is established there. As they put it: “We are based on an ideal site
overlooking the River Bann convenient to the Marina and the three towns of
Coleraine, Portstewart & Portrush”, quoted from
Already a small drawing when first seen on the site, the burgee is now definitely petite: http://colerainyachtclub.ning.com. It is a blue pennant bearing a white tower with a red and blue something inside it. However this photo shows a rectangular flag with the same design, apparently: http://colerainyachtclub.ning.com/photo/christmas-dinner-2009-19?context=latest - dark blue field bearing a white tower, outlined yellow; on said tower are placed a red hand – representing Ulster, surely - and in front of it, two stylized dark blue waves. More in this vein here: http://colerainyachtclub.ning.com/photo/christmas-dinner-2009-9/next?context=user where we see what must be a club officer’s flag, framed on the wall: previous design transferred to a swallowtail, red cross throughout behind the tower and a ball, possibly white, in the upper hoist.
Others may be more lucky in pinpointing the burgee, in the meantime have a look at the logo-like picture on burgees.com: http://www.burgees.com/BGroupCo-Cz.htm.
