Cercle Nautique de Sainte-Marguerite

Sainte-Marguerite is one of the beaches of Pornichet, located not far from Saint-Marc, world-famous as Mr. Hulot's summer vacation place.
Guide Bleu Bains de mer de Bretagne (1925) presents Sainte-Marguerite as "a small aristocratic resort, with beautiful mansions surrounded by gardens and a good hotel; golf course".
The beach and the mansions are still there, but the old Hôtel de la plage de Sainte-Marguerite seems to have been replaced by bigger, modern buildings.

The burgee of Club Nautique de Sainte-Marguerite (CNSM) (website), a yacht club which seems to have disappeared, is white with a light blue cross voided through, the vertical arm filled in red and the horizontal arm charged with the black letters "CNSM" flanked by two black ermine spots.

The burgee of the CNP (CNP website) is horizontally divided light blue-light green with big "C" and "N" letters placed vertically along the hoist and the word "Pornic" placed horizontally in the middle, all in white.

In 1872, the three yacht clubs Cercle Nautique de La Baule, Société des Régates du Pouliguen and Centre de Voile et de Plaisance du Pouliguen were founded under the patronage of the municipal administrations of the neighbour sea resorts of La Baule and Le Pouliguen. They merged in 1970 to form the Cercle Nautique La Baule - Le Pouliguen (CNBP), renamed in 1979 Cercle Nautique La Baule - Le Pouliguen - Pornichet (CNBPP), following the involvement of the municipality of Pornichet in the yacht club.

The burgee of the SRP was a triangular red flag with a blue border on the free edges, and a blue diamond with a white fimbriation, charged with a white star.
