Need help with sailing and boat terminology? See the Glossary that we have put together. Also, please keep in mind that boats bought at the factory come with a free sailing demonstration. New boats come with a free demonstration whether they are bought at the factory or delivered from the factory. Used boats only come with a 2 hour rigging demonstration if picked up at the factory.

How to Sail a Flying Scot Fast... This Mad Sails Tuning Guide gives great insight into not only tuning the boat, but also sailing the boat fast. The tips here are important to know if you race the boat. We suggest practicing the sailing tips, before the mast tuning. A day spent sailing is always far more valuable than a day working on the boat. You can also check out the North Sails Tuning Guide. Finally, if you need a loos gauge for tuning or new sails, please feel free to call or order on our store.
