Orginally sold by a company called Bell Woodworking

The Fireball insignia is pretty neat.

I think the Cherub scores top marks for inappropriateness

The Laser 4000 etc bit of putting the insognia on the jib really sucks.

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...

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

 

 

 

(or a moose)

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