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 make the Scot extremely stable. With over 600 lbs of reserve buoyancy, the Flying Scot is virtually unsinkable. 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.
