Fleets – Flying Scot

Flying Scot Fleet 37

The Flying Scot was designed in 1957 by Gordon K, “Sandy” Douglass in northern Ohio after he had designed the Thistle and Highlander. The 19-ft. Scot has a slightly tunneled hull design, hard bilges and weighted centerboard, making the Scot extremely stable. With over 600 lbs of reserve buoyancy, the Flying Scot is virtually unsinkable.

The Flying Scot is a great boat for both pleasure sailing and racing. Scots can hold up to eight adults, but are raced with a crew of two or three and can also be single-handed. A Scot can plane on a beam-reach with 15 knots of wind and carries a mainsail, jib, and spinnaker.

Each year Fleet 37 hosts the annual Buckeye Regatta in May, as well as various social and sailing events throughout the season.
