Three in a row

Or a hat trick of Burgees.
The certainly seem to be getting scattered around on the wind, pardon the pun.

Very dangerous, Eammon.
No doubt the Chentlemen will rise to the bait and will be posting pics of multiple burgee assemblies to outdo the plebs.
What is the collective noun for burgees?
Flight?

In fact there is 4 burgeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees but one is on the craft from which the pic was taken.
Asked one of my crew to take down the Saltire and Burgee on the last way to my mooring, five minutes later he came in and handed them both to me :shock: "Urrrggghhh", after the bloody effort I spent securing them on, I had only meant him to unhoist them and store them inside sail cover. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
