For both of my readers (if you're still out there), an oyster

Assorted flags. Each week, pennants go to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd
place boats, with the host club's initials. The BBYRA insignia,
the Barnegat Lighthouse, adorns the qualifying banner. Dad's first
full season appears to be 1953, sailing the family Lightning at 18.
