The ensign of the Naval Reserve Cadets is 'national flag' blue, with the Australian white ensign at the canton, and with a badge at the fly. The badge has a yellow trident penetrating a yellow naval crown, surrounded by a yellow-outlined 'national flag' blue circular scrool bearing the words 'Naval Reserve Cadets' in yellow.

Today I went to see the aircraft carrier USS Constellation which is visiting
Sydney. Near the aircraft carrier was a two-masted sailing ship, flying an
ensign similar to the one (Naval Reserve Cadets) I described on January 26.
It is navy blue, with the Australian white ensign in the canton, and with a
royal crown in full colours in the middle of the fly. Perhaps this is an
ensign for training vessels affiliated with the navy but do not belong to
Naval Reserve Cadets.

I wonder if the Blue Ensign with a crown in the fly and
an Australian White Ensign canton could be the ensign of the Royal Australian Navy Sailing
Association? If not, I would be interested to know, what is their ensign?

Most unlikely - the RANSA burgee is exactly the same as its British
counterpart: white, red St. George's Cross, blue naval crown in the middle.
