A flag bearing the colors or emblem of a sailing club. Yacht club burgees may be found in many shapes, but are most commonly either triangular or swallow tail. Most clubs have unique burgees that immediately identify their member’s boats and are used as a brand or logo.

Reciprocity is a wonderful benefit of yacht club membership with opportunities to visit most yacht clubs around the world.  When visiting another club, there is a known tradition to exchange burgees to demonstrate our gratitude for the club’s hospitality. Those burgees exchanged are displayed throughout DWYC. Additionally, the burgee gifted to the visiting yacht club is most often displayed in that yacht club. Visiting yachtsmen near and far enjoy “the hunt” for their yacht club’s “colors” when enjoying a reciprocal club’s hospitality.

Below are alphabetical and numeric logs of the domestic (bar area) and international (Marlin room) burgees displayed in the clubhouse. You are able to download the list for your convenience while traveling, and the text is optimized for searching by keywords.
