Flying Scot Fleet 103
FBYC is the home of Flying Scot Fleet 103 - the 2007 Flying Scot fleet of the year and host of the 2007 Flying Scot North American Championship Regatta. Races are held on Fishing Bay, within sight of and easy sailing distance from our club house. Races are generally 20 to 40 minute long windward-leeward courses. Three to five races are held each race day, with twelve or more Scots frequently competing. Racing occurs on weekends from April through October each year. We have approximately 30 Flying Scots dry sailed at FBYC.
The Flying Scot is a 19ft day sailer designed in 1957 by Gordon K. "Sandy" Douglass. The Flying Scot has a strong national class that prides itself in family sailing. Raced by a crew of two or three, many teams are husband/wife or parent/child. Over 5,600 Flying Scots have been built. New Flying Scots are identically constructed by Flying Scot Inc. Strict class rules prevent changes that would make older boats obsolete. The Flying Scot class is well known for welcoming new sailors and helping them improve, for its strong friendships and great social events.
In 1998 the Flying Scot was awarded the honor of being included in the American Sailing Hall of Fame.
