Pennants, or streamers, have an ancient history in sailing vessels. 600-year-old paintings of sailing ships show them. They were indispensable to warships during the Age of Sail, as they identified the vessel and the captain aboard. These days, a pennant is a grace note, an elegant streamer flown from the highest point on traditional smallcraft like the Eastport Pram, Skerry, Northeaster Dory, PocketShip, or any other small sailing boat of classic good looks.
Handmade at our Annapolis shop, these pennants are cut from premium dark red spinnaker fabric from the sailmaker's. The head is reinforced with sail tape and a hand-punched brass grommet. The trailing edge is swallow-tailed, per tradition. A length of 3mm line is included, so your pennant is ready to install at once.
Pennants measure 42 inches long and 2 inches wide.
