"Burin" is the Croatian name of the north-eastern wind blowing from the coast towards sea in wintertime, but milder than bura.
The burgee of the club (website) is a triangular pennant colored red-white-blue in chevron pointing to the fly and with the white initials "YCB", presumably for "Yacht Club Burin", at hoist.
