A Pennant for Suva

Here are the comments about the designs for a Suva pennant. Send an email to to comment.


Current standings:   A – 2    B – 5   C – 8   D – 2   Total votes : 17 (updated 9/11)

A. It will show the best at a distance and in the breeze. JH

Like the simplicity of A.  JN

My first choice is B. The color red stands out and will be visible from a long distance. My 2nd choice is C. No doubt what SUVA is and it would look great up close & on a mug. (AH)

B is my overall favorite-it is bold and could probably be a companion design to our current logo -please change my first choice to B LK
I like the red  white and blue one…Capt. Mark (B)
I like” B”. It is more traditional in style for a burgee and the pendant will show well at the masthead. KS

C. It is consistent with our other logo’s (GM)

I vote for “C”.  Reason: “C” is the only one with character of our sailboat, Coupeville, & Penn Cove.  PB

Version C, for the purpose of maintaining brand consistency, building brand recognition, etc. Also, I don’t think it’s necessary to incorporate Whidbey Island into the banner. It’s cleaner, less cluttered, without the Whidbey Island text. RS

C. In me head I had a design with SUVA sailing, framing Mt Baker in the background. This one will do JUST FINE. WV

C , it is existing logo ; shows what SUVA is. Whidbey Island should be on pennant for location. MH

C is it! Our logo is the truest visual image unique to the Suva. Let’s use it and build on it.  LW

I vote for C , it is existing logo ; shows what SUVA is…MH

C is he only one with the character of our sailboat, Coupeville, & Penn Cove.  PB

“D” It is more colorful and easier to discern at a great distance / masthead height. “C” is nice but I don’t think it will be discernible at masthead height and long distance. CB

D. I have no good reasoning beyond the fact that D is the first letter of my first name, and I came up with the idea at Tobys, using wisely spent tip money. I would like to see the U and A in blue, not black. DY

Book a Private Sail

Now that Suva has completed the USCG inspection, we are certified to carry larger groups and parties. Accordingly, we have updated our rates for private sails.


The first change was to increase the number of passengers for our base amount. Now, instead of 10 passengers, the base amount of $300 per hour includes 12 passengers. (There is still a two hour minimum).


For more than 12 passengers, each additional passenger will be $20 per hour per passenger. For example, the table below shows the rates for even number of passengers up to 20:

Passengers Total, for first two hours (2 hr min) Additional Hours  
Up to 12 $600.00 $250.00  
14 $680.00 $290.00  
16 $760.00 $330.00  
18 $840.00 $370.00  
20 $920.00 $410.00  


For the remainder of this season, we will be limiting groups to 20 passengers, as we gain experience with larger groups. If you have a need for more than 20 passengers, please contact to discuss options.
