At the Commodores Cup and other international events, when GB is divided into four Nations.
What ensigns or flags do they fly to differentiate the teams?

When you finish racing, you re-hoist your ensign till preparing for the next event.

Not in the real world you don't.

Also, GBR compete at the commodore's cup, not the nations. I can't actually think of an international sailing event that is competed in by the nations.

Much as I hate to contradict, the 2014 Comedy Cup had teams from Ireland and Scotland as well as coloured GBR (as in red/white/blue not skin colour) teams which were presumably Englanders. Ireland won it by the way.

Huh, you're right about Scotland, hadn't clocked that, I thought the Scots normally just took one of the Red/White/Blue teams if there was enough interest. Ireland of course is not part of GBR...

I very much doubt there was any ensign wearing though.
