|The Flying Scot is a "one-design" raced
internationally with over 50 fleets in the
USA. Spinnaker ready and fast!
The Flying Scot was designed by one of the most prolific and famous small-boat racers of all time: Gordon K. "Sandy" Douglass. He gave the Scot a unique blend of performance and comfort.

The high boom, wide side-decks and deep cockpit create an armchair comfort usually reserved for the big keel boats. The Scot's nimble handling and planing hull, however, provide the close-to-the-water thrill of a small boat. Tiller steering transmits the "feel" of the
helm on every point of sail, she responds perfectly to sail trim and she
is very fast to plane, all while maintaining her stability. The Scot has an excellent sail area-to-weight ratio, which makes her sensitive in light winds, and blast off the line in medium to heavy winds. Most fleets race the Flying Scot with spinnaker for amazing downwind performance. And she's tough; no worries about bumping rails at the mark!

The Flying Scot Sailing Association
Meet and race with other Flying Scot sailors! If racing is your bag, our national class organization, the Flying Scot Sailing Association, sponsors over 100 organized fleets in the US along with many regional and national regattas. The FSSA also maintains the strict, one-design class rules that allow your Flying Scot to remain competitive year after year without expensive equipment changes. The FSSA publishes a bi-monthly magazine Scots 'n Water which will keep you updated on fleet action nationwide and offers tips and stories.
New to racing? No problem, the fleets welcome and help train new racers with low-key and family race series.
The Flying Scot can be raced with a crew of two, three or four, but is most often raced with two. Her inherent stability, simple rig and small spinnaker make her an ideal boat for a couple. In fact, we have a national Wife/Husband Championship each year.
