My first Sea Bag has a number 5 on it. The bag was a gift that I immediately loved. I paid no attention to the fact that the number had little relevance for me. It was just unique and cool. Now Sea Bags come with a variety of graphics. The red star is popular followed by the blue anchor.
The numbers still catch my attention. And, you might remember our earlier post:
According to the US Sailing website, offshore racing yachts are required to carry US Sailing numbers on mainsails, spinnakers and each overlapping headsail. These numbers are assigned based geographic area. Each number assigned is unique to the racing vessel, which is why our bags are so special. No two sails are going to be the same. The numbers assigned to the Northeast are in the range of 3000-3499 and some from 3500 to 3999. That’s why 3’s are going to be more popular with sails coming from the Northeast. As we branch out and collect more sails from around the world, we’ll see more numbers and of course, more designs.
For entertainment purposes only and not as a student of numerology (the study of the purported mystical relationship between a count or measurement and life), here are some suggestions of what your single digit Sea Bag could represent. Note the omission of number one is purposeful because it is commonly held that it represents individuality or victory ranking.
Number 2 seeks balance and union. It is a gentle, considerate, and sensitive vibration. Keywords: diplomatic, warm, peaceful, sensitive.
Number 3 causes communications and interaction. . Kind, positive, and optimistic, Three's enjoy life and have a good sense of humor. Keywords: jovial, friendly, positive, adventurous, self-expressive.
Number 4 doesn’t appear often on a Sea Bag but represents creation. This is the worker. Practical, with a love of detail, Fours are trustworthy, hard-working, and helpful. Keywords: trustworthy, helpful, steady, logical, self-disciplined. Number 5 is the freedom lover.
Number 5 is an intellectual vibration. These are "idea" people with a love of variety and the ability to adapt to most situations. Keywords: adaptable, freedom-loving, romantic, resourceful, witty, fun-loving, curious, flexible, accommodating.
Number 6 is nurturing. These people are the first to offer a shoulder to cry on. Keywords: compassionate, responsible, sacrificing and unselfish, harmonious and balanced, generous, kind, humble, charismatic and charming.
Also note that 7 and 9 are more rare to see than number 4 on a Sea Bag unless, of course, custom ordered.
Lucky Number 8 is power. This is the manager. Number Eight is a strong, successful, and material vibration. Keywords: ambitious, business-minded, practical, leading, authoritative, successful, courageous, accomplished, organized.
Just as every Sea Bag has a story, our classic digit bags now have a backstory too. Numbers no longer have to be mysterious – unless of course you prefer the mystique!
