Creative Brief

Contest title: logo for Sailing Dinghy Names .com.au
Sub title: SailingDinghyNames.com.au
Category: Logo Design
Brand Name: Sailing Dinghy names
Summary: we need a logo design for a website that enables sailing dinghy owners ( normally 8 to 21 year olds) to design and order their boat name and personalise them with graphics.
Description:  It needs to be able to work on T-shirts and merchandise as well, needs to look cool so that they want to wear the logo and place the logo on their boats as well as their boat name. prefered colours that seem popular in sailing dinghy gear are dark grey, red and white, I think i would like a very firey red (a bit orange) and the use of carbon fibre texture in the dark grey background.  
What I want:

i have attached a very quick mock up of the sort of style we are after.   it needs to convery speed and extreme sailing, needs to have a young person realy leaning out and going fast. look at images of sailing dinghies to see the shape and the possition when they graphic cool design a bit grunge style i thnk. something that works as a stand alone logo with three colours and as a black and white logo or  with three or more colours on a t-shirt are going fast, needs to have a spinaker sail, (very round sail at the front) see photo attached

What I don't Want: don't want the wrong style of boat. don't want anything that does not look cool to kids

Do you want to keep the current logo? or you want something different? 'cause I saw rated one just another improvement of the existing logo.

#19 that uses our design is so far still our favorite but the boat has been changed to one that is not the right shape, can everyone please use our boat and add highlights shines and shadows
also maybe play with different wording
also on a white oval with a carbon fibre background version would be good

# 7 #8 #6 all too basic not enough intrest or detail, but the colour red is really good.
#3 #4 #5 are all to young kid like, for younger then 8 years old i think, if we target 16 year olds then kids younger and older will still like the design
#1 #2 too corporate

This is a nice logo, but I thnk it is not trendy, cool, graphic enough for kids to want to put on their boats or wear a shirt with it on, It looks too corporate. If i was marketing to adults i would realy like it.
Some things you have missed in the brief:
1. The logo has to have a person in it leaning out and the sails need to be leaning back at an angle to give the impression of speed.
2. The orange is much to orange, should really be red with a bit of orange in it. needs carbon fibre somewhere
3. Would like a Spinaker sail at the front of the boat
Also i think the font should be more modern, (sans serif) maybe something like Handel gothic
thank you for your efforts
