The Société Nautique de Sète was founded in 1863 as the Société des Régates de Sète. The SNS website claims it is one of the oldest yeacht clubs in France and for sure the oldest one in the Mediterranean area. I am afraid that this last claim is not supported by historical evidence, since the Société des Régates de Cannes was founded in 1860.
The burgee of the SNS is white with a blue triangle placed along the hoist and a red triangle making the point of the burgee. The white letters R and S, placed in the blue and red triangles, respectively, recall the ancient name of the SNS.
