quote translated from Swedish image by Ivan Sache, 3 February 2002


Gamlakarleby (I guess Old Karleby) is known in Finnish as Kokkola. It is located on the Gulf of Bothnia.
Ivan Sache, 3 February 2002


Gamlakarleby does mean Old Karleby (or really "Oldkarleby"), but the town readopted its original name Karleby in 1979. I suppose this does not necessarily mean that the sailing society changed its name accordingly. "New Karleby" is a smaller town further south on the coast, which in Swedish is called Nykarleby and in Finnish Uusikarlepyy.

Pargas Båtklubb/Paraisten Venekerho

An example of a Finnish ensign for private boats is the one for the members of Pargas Boat Club.

The letters PBK are for the Swedish name of the club, and the letters PVK for the Finnish name of the club. A better image of the club badge can be seen at http://at8.abo.fi/pvk/ or http://at8.abo.fi/pbk/.
