Thanks for the suggestion!

That would make sense, except that AFAIK Fauth has never sailed there (other than a bit of ice boating). Could be wrong but I believe all of his sailing has been in LIS.

Bella Mente's red-and-white mystery burgee features the initial "F". While that could be just a coincidence, I suspect it is a made-up 'personal' flag (with the initial symbolizing "Fauth"), rather than a YC burgee. :unsure:

An initial, a diamond, a stag's head: it's all rather a dog's breakfast. :wacko:

If you look in old Lloyd's Register of American Yachts you will see that there is a long tradition of private signals. Out of curiosity I've looked up people I know or their parents and found some of them. The neat thing is they are arranged by pattern for fairly rapid identification.
