The Flying Scot is a wonderful boat for teaching on. It's stable and safe, durable, and you can fit up to 8 people on board. We currently have 172 camps, clubs and/or schools that use Flying Scots. Ask yourself, would kids rather sail by themselves or with their friends? Would you rather sail by yourself or with a friend? The boat single hands great, but we find the kids usually prefer to sail with their friends. The Scot allows crews of all sizes to work together in order to sail the boat. We do encourage switching positions of course.

The Flying Scot is versatile for us. Because, we can pile a bunch of kids on it or a few kids can race it. It's our battle axe. It's indestructible and easy to keep maintained. We have eleven of them.
The Scot is a comfortable and stable sailboat that you can grow into.
I started sailing Flying Scots in 1969 when the Gulf Yachting Association adopted the class as its Capdevielle Trophy Series boat. The Buccaneer Yacht Club has owned eleven different Flying Scots, and we have raced, pleasure sailed, taught juniors and adults in these boats, and more recently team raced them. Three full generations have used them, and working on the forth generation. Our fleet topped out at six boats. We successfully maintained the fleet with minimal expense, and the primary race boat raced well into its tenth year, and was still competitive. I highly recommend this class for sailing camps, they are strong and take plenty of abuse.
