Segelsportclub Kahl e.V.

[Segelsportclub Kahl e.V. (German YC)] image by Ivan Sache, 7 June 2002

Yellow pennant with a shield and SSC (big) KAHL (small) in blue letters beside the shield. The shield is diagonally divided by a white wave and shows in its left part a white [hare] on blue and in its right part a white half-wheel on red. The chief is blue with KAHL AM MAIN in white. Curiously enough, a rabbit is considered as a malediction on board, probably because it was able in the past to cause serious damage to food reserves. The arms seems to show a hare rather than a rabbit. Hares are perfectly able to swim, so the hare on the arms is not off-topic. Kahl is located on the confluency on the rivers Kahl and Main, east of Frankfurt.

The burgee image in the yacht club website appears to show the SSC-KAHL lettering as black rather than blue.

Kieler Yacht-Club e.V.

[Kieler Yacht-Club e.V.  (German YC)] image by Ivan Sache, 9 May 2002

According to this website, this yacht club was founded as Marine-Regattaverein in 1887, became the Kaiserlicher Yacht-Club (KYC) in 1891, merged with other Kiel sail clubs into the Yacht-Club von Deutschland by the nationalsocialists in 1937 and refounded as Kieler Yacht-Club in 1946. More information (and current burgee) at the Kieler Yacht-Club website and its club history webpage.

White field with a black Scandinavian cross fimbriated red. The municipal flag of Kiel uses red, white and black but the relationship between the municipal flag and the yacht club burgee is less than evident.

[Kaiserlicher Yacht Club (German YC)] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 18 Feb 2009

Kaiserlicher Yacht Club

Brief history:
The club was located in Kiel. It was established in 1887 as a naval racing/regatta association, changed into a yacht club in 1891(?). The club was pushed after the opening of the Kaiser-Wilhelm Kanal (today: internationalized Nord-Ostsee-Kanal), which ended near Kiel. The club had ca. 1400 members in 1900 and more than 3100 in 1910. The club suffered heavily under WW1, when many members died in service at the armed forces.
Afterwards the club was under pressure of national socialist rule to merge with the other Kiel yacht clubs in order to form the Yacht Club von Deutschland. To avoid merging the club decided its self-dissolution in 1936. Only a few of its members joined the YCvD.
In WW2 there was a repetition of the situation after WW1. The boat house was used since 1945 by the British Kiel Yacht Club. The Kaiserlicher Yacht Club re-established itself in 1945 as Kieler Yacht club, regained its boat house and the former enemies became friends.

Description of burgee:
The burgee was the same like that one of Kieler Yacht Club, but a golden imperial crown, which was abolished in 1937, was superimposing the centre of cross.
