We currently have 172 camps, clubs, and schools that use Flying Scots in their programs. Her stable but nimble design keeps the sailing fun and safe while the roomy cockpit allows for up to 8 people to sail together. The Scot is also built to last and her uncomplicated rigging keeps the maintenance to a minimum and boats on the water. Because the Scot allows for varying numbers of crew, programs can allow students to rotate through positions teaching teamwork, communication, and leadership. Many of our new boat owners today have a fondness for the Scot as they learned to sail on her in one of the many successful sailing programs using the FS.

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.
