Orginally sold by a company called Bell Woodworking

Nope - it originates from the burgee of the founding club (Dovey Sailing club) and represents the legendary bells of Aberdovey.

the hurricane 5.9 is so plain and simple thats why i love it!

the new spitfire one is the same with text i suppose it helps people to know instantly what the boat is!

lifes to short to sail slow boats!

the official bosun symbol and the kestrel one are almost identical.

does anyone know why newer boats seem to have abondoned class insignia in favour of names in fancy fonts?

The osprey and hornet ones confussed me the first time i saw them. The hornet symbol looks like it could be an osprey coming in to grab a fish. And the osprey symbol looks like a head on view of a hornet

What about some pics?

Contender's insignia is quite bland, but someone in Germany raised a question: he's having a new sexy black mainsail and wonders if the insignia on the sail is still class-legal; instead of being blue/white/red/white/blue, he's got blue/black/red/black/blue... Maybe he should get a length of white cloth to patch it up, or a bit of paint...
